The Penntek power pull hammer is the only hammer that looks like Bugs Bunny hit it in the head — you know, where the red lump rises out of the character’s head? Then again, the Penntek’s lump is solid steel.
And the Penntek’s lump has a purpose: they claim it gives you extra leverage to pull out tough nails. Well, we tried it out for ourselves to find out whether this claim is true — or whether it’s just another gimmick to separate consumers from a portion of their tool budget.
The Penntek didn’t come in a box, so it was very simple to open. Then again it’s a hammer; it doesn’t need one. We noticed the usual appointments grace the Power Pull — a rubber wrapped handle with stylish vents cut into the sides and a solid, one piece steel head and shank.
The feature that makes the Penntek Power Pull hammer different than other hammers is the button on top. This is the where the “power” in the power pull comes from.
A quarter turn of the button releases a spring and reveals that the button is actually a solid steel pin that pops straight out of the hammer head. A twist and push puts it away and locks it back into the head.
