The classic crowbar has been around for centuries and in that time has undergone mainly cosmetic changes; the Hultafors Wrecking Bar 209 introduces a revolutionary design that greatly improves its functionality. A winner of a 2012 Red Dot award, it bends to the user's needs, not the other way around.

Conceived by designer David Crafoord of Ergonomidesign, the Hultafors Wrecking Bar 209 features a rubber handle that allows workers to gain a better grip on it. Crafoord says, "If you have been working with a crowbar you know that you end up in really awkward working positions as well as sometimes impossible situations." By adjusting the wedge, those awkward positions are a thing of the past.
