Crescent® Unveils New Bull Bar™ in Time for Spring Deck Renovation and Demolition Projects

Innovative New Tool Removes Boards Faster, Cleaner and With Less Effort

SPARKS, MD--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2015) - Crescent, a leading hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, today announced its Crescent Bull Bar™, a powerful new professional demolition and renovation tool designed for deck board removal and pallet deconstruction.

Professionals and DIYers can count on the new Bull Bar for all their deck projects. Unlike similar tools, the innovative 180-degree indexing head changes positions, allowing the user to easily select the best angle for maximum leverage and access. The Bull Bar has a double fork design with teeth that grip the edge of the board, decreasing slippage and providing a balanced lift on both sides of the nail. Closed positions offer fast action for shorter pulls. Open positions allow for powerful downward force on large planks and are an ideal solution for ground-level work.

Additionally, a robust center nail puller will remove ring shank nails and stubborn long nails with better balance and increased leverage. The patent-pending nail puller utilizes the round portion of the indexing head as a cam, allowing the head to rock against the wood rather than dig into the material for easy removals.

"Traditional pry bars require significant force and repositioning. Our new Bull Bar alleviates the need for constant repositioning," said Griffin Biering, product manager for Crescent. "The tool's indexing head allows the user to move the bar to the ideal position for maximum leverage, which means less effort is required when removing boards."

The head and 44-inch knurled handle are made from heavy-duty steel, and the oxidized finish head protects the Bull Bar from the elements. The Bull Bar is now available for purchase in time for spring renovation or demolition projects. To see this tool in action, visit Bullbar.CrescentTool.com.

About Crescent:
Crescent® is a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world. The original Crescent adjustable wrench was introduced in the early 1900s and could replace an entire set of dedicated-size wrenches. This made it perfect for frequent repairs required by early cars and airplanes. In fact, Charles Lindbergh was quoted as saying he carried only "gasoline, sandwiches, a bottle of water and a Crescent wrench and pliers" on his famous 1927 solo transatlantic flight. Today, the Crescent line has expanded beyond adjustable wrenches to include a wide selection of pliers, ratcheting wrenches, screwdrivers, and tool sets.
