Crowbar Straddles Studs
The "Gerry Bar" is equipped with a pair of steel prongs that lift material from underneath in a single motion. The tips of the prongs are blunt to minimize damage. It lifts straight up to reduce damage and since the upward lifting force is equal on both sides of the nails or screws, the fastener comes straight out.
Available in two styles. Model 70 has sharply-angled prongs for general use, while model 140 has more open 140 degree prongs that make it easier to work near the edge of a floor, wall, or ceiling. This model can also be used to hold a warped stud straight while framing. Both models work on studs up to 2 in. wide. The handle is 26 in. long.
An optional T-handle allows the user to apply even greater leverage.
Each model sells for $39.95 plus $8.25 per bar for S&H. Sharpened forks are available and sell for $8.25 plus S&H. The T-handle sells for $7.25 (includes S&H).
