If you only use a pry bar occasionally or don’t have the room for a full-out pry bar, this pry bar head attachment from OTC Tools fits onto a 3/8″-drive breaker bar or ratchet and turns it into a rolling-head pry bar.  Even though OTC specifically says ratchet, we wouldn’t risk a good one.

Measuring 2″ long by 2-13/16″ wide by 5/8″ thick and weighing about 3oz., this little tool is surprisingly expensive.  Most places charge $50 or more — but not good old Harbor Freight.  For $7 they sell a tool that matches OTC’s description and picture almost identically.  We’d be willing to bet it’s the same tool.

    Too bad they didn’t make the “V” notch in the working end for pulling those big nails

    HF might look the same but isn’t always same quality. I have a nice looking set of HF cold chisels that are dead soft!

    I completely agree about the quality of some HF tools, but when I say the picture is almost identical I mean that there a good chance it’s the same picture except for the size. Take a look at the Harbor Freight link and the OTC link. The lighting, the background the angle they shot it from all match. That and the descriptions are a match.

    Maybe Harbor Freight is selling the 2nds or OTC realized that nobody would buy them at their price and rather than drop the price they sell them at HF at a discount.

    I personally haven’t ever found HF metal tools to be worth, well, their price. Especially ones meant to be hit with a hammer or meant to lever large pressures (this one).

    The picture they use is probably the same one sure, that’s never the point. It’s always easier for the ad guys to copy and paste.

    HF the same as the premium brands? Are you on glue? That junk is meant for guys who want to own it all, but don’t use it. It’s all low quality steel made in China. They specialize in making it look like OTC or Snap-On, But the price tells the story. As my dad always said, you get what you pay for.
