Slide hammer is not a hammer, but is a tool that helps to pull bearings and bolts out of vehicles, parts that are hard to pull in the car. The hammer also helps to fix car dents. The handle, weight, the nut, screw and the thread are the basic parts of a slide hammer. The handle features a rubberised grip that lowers the chances of slipping.
