When you’re building something or just conducting repairs, you might come across a broken nail that needs to be removed. There’s an easy you can do it and all you need is a pair of vice grips and a basic claw hammer.
When there’s no head on the nail your hammer can snag it and use its leverage to pull it out. Milan Rosan from Build.com suggests taking a pair of vice grips and simply clamping down on the nail to create something for the hammer to grab onto. Once the vice grips are in place, just try to pull out the nail with your hammer as usual. This can be done for broken screws as well, but the amount of power to required to pull those out is a lot more. Just make sure your grips are on nice and tight and let it rip.
