Stanley Continues To Tear It Up!
Stanley Adds New Hand Tools To Demolition Line

Orlando, Florida, January 13, 2005 – Stanley announces the addition of fourteen new products to its current line of demolition tools. These tools are equipped to take on, or apart, whatever comes at them. New products include three FatMax® Wrecking Bars, a complete line of specialized pry bars and nail pulling bars, and six new demolition hammers!

“When we go into the field, pros consistently tell us they need top performance from their demolition tools,” said Tim LeBeau, Director of Global Product Management at Stanley. “The new additions complement a comprehensive demolition tool line that is comfortable to use and ultra-durable for tackling the toughest jobs.”

Wrecking Bars
Stanley introduces three new FatMax® Wrecking Bars, all of which incorporate a tri-lobe cross-section design engineered for outstanding strength and performance. These FatMax® Wrecking Bars are forged from high-carbon steel for extra strength and are then powder-coated in Stanley Yellow to achieve increased visibility on the job.

FatMax® Wrecking Bars (crow bars) incorporate the traditional “goose neck” pattern for increased leverage and are currently available in 14”, 24” and 36” inch bar sizes. The carbon-forged steel allows pros to use these tools for nearly everything; from heavy prying, dismantling timber and opening packing cases, to nail removal and other minor demolition work. All are sold individually with a suggested retail price under $20.

Pry Bars and Nail Pulling Bars
Stanley adds a full complement of pry bars and nail pulling bars to their growing repertoire of demolition tools. Designed with the pro in mind, Stanley begins by forging each bar from high carbon steel, which is then heat treated for added strength and durability. The STANLEY® Pry Bars incorporate a thin, flared end, used to pry off crown and base molding without damaging the wall or actual material; with a V-shaped tail on the other end, for prying out buried or damaged nails. Combining these unique geometries allows the end user to carry one tool to get the job done. The STANLEY® Nail Pulling Bars are also available with the traditional cat’s-paw design, allowing users to easily dig out imbedded and broken nails. STANLEY® Pry Bars come in 8”, 10” and 12” and have a suggested retail price under $20.

Demolition Hammers
The new range of STANLEY® Demolition Hammers will take on the challenges of any jobsite.
