Two Innovative Features Give this Tool a Real Edge Over Conventional Pry Bars.

This post is in partnership with Zenith Industries.  The opinions are my own.

Hammer hitting wedge



Integrated wedge boosts prying power.  As the Trim Puller is being driven in, a built-in wedge exerts a gradual but powerful pressure on the surfaces being pried apart.  A precision-ground, beveled edge allows the blade to engage the joint and drive in easily.


Removing shoe molding with trim puller


Good for wood.  The tool is at its best removing shoe molding, baseboard, wainscoting, door casing and just about any other kind of architectural or decorative trim – leaving it intact and able to be re-used.



Using trim puller to remove tile


Works on other materials, too.  The beveled edge and integrated wedge also make the Trim Puller well suited for removing ceramic tile, literally popping it off the substrate.  The tools is also handy for prying off carpet tack strip and transition strip and for taking up pre-finished flooring that’s been stapled or nailed down.
