Ken-Tool has a new heavy duty Universal Wheel Weight Hammer. It is designed to speed up the installation and removal of clip-on wheel weights on light and heavy-duty trucks.
The hammer is 12-in. long and features a 2.5 lbs. cast steel head -- nearly twice as heavy as comparable wheel weight hammers. It has a non-marring, replaceable polyvinyl strike face that is 1.50 in. in diameter. The hammer's greater mass and large strike face allows a technician to efficiently install the wheel weight with a single blow.
The fiberglass handle uses a shock resistant, ergonomic design to provide technician comfort with or without gloves, and to reduce fatigue. Designed for use in a heavy-duty commercial environment, it has a rubber grip, which resists common shop chemicals and is four times stronger than a typical wooden handle.
The Ken-Tool Universal Wheel Weight Hammer works with all types of clip-on wheel weights -- lead, zinc and steel. The mar-free strike face protects the surface of aluminum wheels and chrome plated steel wheels from damage caused by an errant hammer strike.
