Wheel weight hammer designed for clip-on wheel weights

June 10, 2014

Ken-Tool has released its heavy duty universal wheel weight hammer, designed for installing and removing clip-on wheel weights for light to heavy-duty trucks.

The hammer is 12-in. long and features a 2.5 lb. cast steel head.  It has a non-marring, replaceable polyvinyl strike face that is 1.50 in. in diameter, which is a 34% larger strike area than a typical 7/8-in. diameter hammer, the company said. The hammer’s greater mass and large strike face allows a technician to efficiently install the wheel weight with a single blow. 

The fiberglass handle uses a shock resistant, ergonomic design to provide technician comfort with or without gloves, and to reduce fatigue.  It is designed for use in a heavy duty commercial environment with a rubber grip which resists common shop chemicals.  It is four times stronger than a typical wooden handle, with improved longevity.

The 35359 H.D. universal wheel weight hammer works with all types of clip-on wheel weights - lead, zinc and steel.  The mar-free strike face protects the surface of aluminum wheels, as well as chrome plated steel wheels, from damage caused by an errant hammer strike. 

Also available is a heavy duty universal wheel weight hammer refurbish kit. The kit includes a new anti-marring impact face, chomoly steel hook, hook set screw, and hex-key wrench.
