I would imagine for those poor souls still punching staples in their roofs at holiday time, the Nail Hunter is a welcome comfort. This oddly shaped pair of pliers has been around for a little while and we’ve seen it show up here and there. This new video tells us why.
We can’t help but like the Nail Hunter. It’s largely a single-purpose tool that might not see a lot of time out of the tool bag, but the times you do need it the Nail Hunter looks uniquely suited for popping staples and nails out in a big damn hurry.
I suspect that pretty much the only reason folks aren’t ripping these from Amazon’s virtual shelves is that it will run you $25 to $30 by the time you get one shipped to you. So that leaves the staple puller elite –- a small crowd to be sure –- who are willing to pay up for one, which is a shame really; it looks like a nice tool.
