The Cole-Bar Hammer Is The Swiss Army Knife Of Demolition Tools

Cole Bar Hammer

You had us at ‘demolition’. But since we’re sticklers for details, we might as well tell you a bit more about the Cole-Bar. It’s technically a hammer, but it also does duty as 6 other tools: a crow bar, a demolition tool, an angle measurement tool, a ruler, a socket wrench and nail pliers. Granted some of these “tools” are somewhat of a stretch; anyone can call a hammer a ruler as well if you use its straight edge to draw a line. But the point is that the Cole-Bar features a patented locking gear mechanism, meaning it can be opened and extended from 0-180 degrees and locked in place at 15 degree increments. This turns it into a full fledged crow bar for instance, but you can also split it in two and use each half as a separate tool. There’s a socket wrench mechanism at the end of one of the halves, and angle measurement notches at the end of another. The current prototype is made out of a #45 carbon steel with electro-plating which is likely to survive repeated attempts to destroy it. The final production model’s composition hasn’t been determined yet, and yes, this does mean that the Cole-Bar isn’t a finished product. It’s doing the Kickstarter dance as we speak, 64% into a $100k goal in $65 increments. If you pledge, you can expect to see it in the Fall.
