IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING RAPTOR PRODUCTS:

Follow these steps to ensure your hammer stays in top condition:

 

 - Periodically check the bolt attaching the hammer head to the handle is torqued to 35NM / 25.8 ft-lb.

 

 - If the bolt does work loose over time, you can apply Loctite blue 242 medium strength thread locking adhesive to bolt and reapply to specified torque settings above.

 

IF BOLT COMES LOOSE CEASE USING TOOL IMMEDIATELY UNTIL IT IS HAS BEEN TIGHTENED TO THE ABOVE SPECIFICATIONS.

 

IF BOLT WILL NOT TIGHTEN TO ABOVE SPECIFICATIONS, PLEASE CONTACT US STRAIGHT AWAY - DO NOT CONTINUE TO USE THIS TOOL WITH A LOOSE BOLT. DOING SO IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

 

- If in time the magnet requires replacement, this can be carefully removed by chipping the old magnet with a small punch. Ensure the hole is cleaned thoroughly once removed then apply a small drop of good quality super glue and carefully tap replacement magnet until it sits at the base of the hole, wiping away any excess glue.

 

ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES. MAGNETS CAN BE BRITTLE

We have removed all powdercoating from any striking surface for your ease of use. However, please note this can mean on rare occasions a small amount of surface rust may appear which can be caused by condensation during transport. As with any steel tool, all exposed parts may rust and this can easily be removed with a sanding block. We also recommend periodically coating faces and side cheeks lightly with oil.

Hammer heads are powdercoated to offer the best protection available. However this will wear over time and is not covered under our warranty. 

Aluminium Handles should be treated as a replaceable part, like a wooden handled hammer, which means damage may be sustained if consistently subjected to overstrike or heavier than intended use.

 

The aluminium has been anodised to give the bright colouring, this will mark with use and scratches, scuffs and markings to the handle are considered general wear and tear and will not be covered under warranty.

 

This hammer is not designed to take excessive amounts of force in the opposite direction of intended use. Claws can be used to pry material apart or as leverage in the direction shown below:

Never strike a hammer face on or with another hardended object, for example, another hammer.

 

Hardened steel may chip and fly in any direction and can cause serious injury to yourself or anyone else in the vicinity.

 

Always wear safety glasses when using our tools.

 

This tool is used at your own risk.

 

KINETIC CUSTOMS TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR INJURY TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS DUE TO IRRESPONSIBLE USE OF THIS PRODUCT OR WHEN IT HAS NOT BEEN MAINTAINED TO THE ABOVE SPECIFICATIONS.
