Super Bar & Pry Bars

crowbarwrecking barpry bar, or prybarpinch-bar or sometimes a prise barprisebar, and more informally a jimmyjimmy barjemmy or PikiPiki or gooseneck is a tool consisting of a metal bar with a single curved end and flattened points, often with a small fissure on one or both ends for removing nails. In the Ireland and Australia, "crowbar" may occasionally be used loosely for this tool, but may also be used to mean a larger straighter tool. The term jemmyor jimmy most often refers to the tool when used for burglary.

It is used as a lever either to force apart two objects or to remove nails. Crowbars are commonly used to open nailed wooden crates. Common uses for larger crowbars are: removing nails, prying apart boards, and generally breaking things. Crowbars can be used as any of the three lever classes but the curved end is usually used as a first-class lever, and the flat end as a second class lever. In mining, crowbars are used to break blasted rocks and to remove loose rock on roof sides and the working face, but not as much in modern mining.
