nail puller, hinge jawed, nail remover, nail extractor This type of nail puller is a variation on the standard, traditional, nail puller as it does not have the sliding handle, and is meant to be used with a separate claw hammer.
a separate claw hammer is used with the smaller version of the traditional nail puller Instead of the handle, it has a striking area at the top which is hit by the hammer to knock the jaws under the nail head.

You then use the claw of the hammer, on one of the fixtures, to leverage the nail out.
