Coiled Hammer Handle

NOTE: This page is archived for historical purposes and is no longer being maintained or updated.


Hazard: A loop-handle hammer concentrates the contact stresses on the back of the fingers and on the palm possibly damaging nerves or blood vessels in the hand.

Solution: A coiled-handled hammer (at left in photo) spreads the contact stresses out across the palm and fingers reducing the likelihood of injury.
