"I have no idea why this wasn't invented sooner,” said Jason Daily, Owner of Deck ReDo, LLC. “The Kwick Gripper can remove staples, nails, and screws with amazing ease.” Chris Aronson, Owner of C&N Farms LLC, agreed, saying, “I simply can’t believe how much grip and leverage it has.”
Ben and his father are currently offering the opportunity to pre-order the Kwick Gripper nail remover tool for a special discounted rate on the E.B. Tool Company website (http://www.ebtoolcompany.com).
The company is using GoFundMe to finance the Kwick Gripper’s marketing efforts. GoFundMe is an online fundraising service that allows individuals to create a personal donation website for business start-ups, life events, and more.
