The DIY Sheath For The Dead On Annihilator Wrecking Bar
If you recall, I’ve gotten this Dead On Tools Annihilator Wrecking Bar from the lady as a random gift earlier in the year. Since then, I’ve smacked it around the house and banged on various things like a caveman with a new club. While it is fun to smash things with any three of its dangerous ends, the spike on the bottom poses the biggest threat to the user when you’re going ham on a walker or two. Overcompensate on a swing and you’ll spike yourself right in the forearm meat. Stumble into something and you might gore yourself. That’s why there’s a small rubber cover that slips on for storage at the end of the bar. While it’s useful, there’s nothing that prevents it from falling off if you’re using it in a scuffle or during home remodeling.
Not sharpened, but obviously still capable of unintentional impalement. the hole in the middle can be used as a hexagonal wrench for various valves and whatnot around the house. After some pondering, I figured out a quick fix to make this end less dangerous when you’re not using it.
BOOOOOOOOM!!! Using a power drill I just drilled a hole through the rubber sleeve and wrapped it with some spare 550 paracord to make this tool derp-free. Just make sure the cord is knotted as close to the sleeve as possible. Any looser and the sleeve still maybe able to be shaken loose. It seems like such a simple fix, but I hadn’t really thought of it until I damn near stabbed myself. The heft and multiple functions make this wrecking bar awesome, but you still need to err on the side of caution when it comes to using it willy nilly. More on the Annihilator as I put it through rigorous tests of the multiple functions it serves. Until then folks. Hope this mini tutorial helps out.
