When you’re building something or doing repairs, you might come across a broken nail that needs to be removed. There’s an easy way to do it, and all you need is a pair of vice grips and a 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, try to pull out the nail with your hammer as usual. This can be done for broken screws as well, but a lot more force is required to pull those out. Just make sure your grips are on nice and tight, and let it rip.
