vise grips to pull nails

When you need to remove and reinstall a board or piece of molding, it’s easy to ding the wood while you’re pulling out the finish nails. Next time, grab the nailhead (only a little needs to be exposed) with a Vise- Grip pliers, then slide a chip of plastic laminate under the jaws. The pliers put a Superman grip on the nailhead, and the laminate protects the wood from the metal jaws as you pry out the nail.
