These adapters are removable and vary in sizes, depending on what it will be used on. Between the T-handle and the attachment point is a heavy slide hammer. The sliding rod varies in length and thickness, depending on the weight and size of the slide hammer. When using this device, force is applied to the slide hammer in a back and forth movement, along with the shaft of the sliding rod. The part to be removed would not incur any damage during the movements. The aim of the task is to pull the part away from whatever it is secured to and are usually used for parts that are internal.
