"I like tools that can be put to many tasks. This is an example of a tool that not only does what is says but is also robust enough to tackle jobs that its larger cousins would find awkward. I have used it to to lift floor boards and remove picture rails. The large surface area distributes the load and leaves minimal, if any, marking. It has earned a place in my tool kit and is worth every penny."
"Used it for taking skirting boards off the wall. Really handy! I stopped damaging the boards when I started using this. You may want to consider buying two depending on the job you plan to use it for."
"This is a brilliant little tool and it is a very good idea to have one in your tool box. Solid build yet nice and light to work with. Has multiple uses suck as removing nails and other fixings, lifting floorboards, removing materials from walls without damaging plaster........."
"Cheap and cheerful, looks like its been forged in some bloke's garage. It is shorter than my old one that was a bit more expensive but although this one lacks the manufacturing quality, it does its job okay though."
"This is a really handy little prybar at a good price. However, like some of the other reviewers, the first one I got had a hidden fracture inside the stem and snapped like a piece of toffee the first time I used it. Usual good screwfix service replaced it without quibble and the new one is fine. Conclusion - good product but screwfix have to sort out quality control so no bad ones get shipped."
"Not as strong as i had hoped for, seems very brittle in comparison to others i've had before, even after a handful of nail pulls the flat edge has started to chip badly and the shaft is starting to warp. I can't recommened it, cause i don't think it will last given a week worth of hard work."
"The physical design itself is pretty good, if a little small but let down by really soft steel. The shoe end started to deform after a few hammer blows to drive it under a nail head in softwood. After removing a few nails the 'groove' on the shoe end started to disintegrate as the nails seem to be harder than the 'hardened steel' this is made from. The tool is also hand ground so the quality of the grooves on both end was rather poor to begin."
"After reading all the good reviews, I ordered two of these.
Just used the first one - prised off a skirting board, and at the third use, it just broke in two parts! Looks like where the flat part is welded to the stem, it had almost completely rusted through. Must be a record, me breaking something that quick!
Wonder how long the other one will last?
If it hadn't broken, this would have been a really useful tool."
