Stortz 100-A Slate Ripper

Free Shipping (Alaska and Hawaii excluded)

The Stortz 100-A Slate Ripper has a reinforced handle to allow for harder hammer strikes. The extra weight in the handle sometimes allows for pulling out the nails with only a jerk of the arm and not a hammer strike. The length from the hook to the handle is 24 inches, which makes this the best ripper for the removal of longer slates. Thin mid-section is perfect for sliding under slates with no breakage. This is the strongest ripper on the market.

*Blade Length: 25 1/2 inches
*Overall Length: 32 inches
*Handle Size: 1 inch diameter x 5 inches long
*Weight: 4 pounds

You cannot work on a slate roof without a slate ripper. It is an indispensable tool for removing individual slates or tiles. Slide the ripper under the slate to be removed, hook the nail, then beat on the ripper handle with a slate hammer to pull the nail out. It does not cut the nails: it pulls them out, then the old slate will slide out. There are usually 2 nails per slate. Once the old slate has been removed, a new one can be installed in its place  with a nail and bib or with aslate hook.

    Absolutely the best tool for slate repair/replacement and worth the cost. The blade is amazingly thin to slide up under the slate to be replaced without damaging the slates above. No visible wear after replacing 90 damaged slates so far.
