Dead On Tools was born on the jobsite. Fate struck when the original engineer created one of the lightest, most powerful hammers on the market. Instantly, the tool became an industry favorite on job sites throughout the country, and Dead On Tools became a household name. Soon after, additional hand tools started development like the Exhumer nail puller series and the ever-popular Annihilator wrecking bars.
Today, Dead On Tools still carries its namesake hand tools, but has focused intently on mastering professional tool belts and storage gear. Dead On Tools has taken the time to carefully craft the industry’s leading work and storage gear, while listening to the end user’s needs. Dead On Tools prides itself with producing products that aim to help each individual Live Life Out Loud.
