Can’t Get it Yet: Strange Folding Hammer

The Cole-Bar can be opened and locked to different angles; here it is being used as an angled prybar.

With the handle opned to 180 degrees the tool becomes a straight prybar. The fellow performing the demonstration is holding onto the head.

The tool can be broken into two pieces by separating the claw side from the head side.

The butt end of the head side is equipped with a 1/2-inch ratcheting socket drive.

When split in two the tool can be used as a hammer and prybar (or catspaw).

A later page from the patent application highlights the release mechanism (18) that allows the halves of the tool to be separated.

When fully extended the hammer becomes a crowbar.

Here's a good look at the ratchet end of the handle.
