KENOSHA, Wis. - March 4, 2010 - Snap-on Standard Duty Striking Handle Prybars (SPBS704R) are anything but standard. With innovative design and a special alloy steel, Snap-on prybars set the industry standard when it comes to versatility, durability and performance.

"Snap-on has spent a significant amount of time designing and engineering prybars that offer better ergonomics and provide a technical edge to the other prybars that are available in the market place," said Bryan Hantke, product manager for Snap-on. "With its unique design and contour handle, you can get great leverage without putting wear and tear on your body. The special alloy steel used in the manufacturing process means that these prybars are built to last. Snap-on offers a wide range of prybar lengths and diameters to match the specific job parameters that service technicians require."

The Snap-on Standard Duty Striking Handle red set (SPBS704R) includes four prybars (8-inch, 12-inch, 18-inch, 24-inch). Besides red, the sets are also available in orange (SPBS704O), green (SPBS704G) and black (SPBS704). In addition, individual sized prybars are also available in sizes 8-inch, 12-inch, 18-inch, 24-inch, 36 inch and 42 inch). The Snap-on Standard Duty Striking Handle prybar features:
  • Patented ergonomic shape and contour handle matched to blade length for optimum leverage.
  • Blade extends through handle and makes contact with end cap to provide solid striking force.
  • Sold metal end cap allows hammer striking without damage to handle.
  • High leverage design with smooth radius head for maximum leverage when lifting and pulling back.
