iF concept design award 2012

Hitting a tiny nail with a big hammer can be quite a challenge and sometimes it’s your fingers that suffer. This is an even bigger problem for the elderly, whose vision is no longer 20:20, or for people who lack strength in their arms. Holding nails to hammer them in at a 45-degree angle is also a problem; just one slip and you could knock a hole in the wall. With this new type of hammer, you simply detach the end of the handle, insert the nail, hold it up against the wall and hammer the nail into place. You’ll never hit your finger or thumb again!
