The solid rubber head of the TEKTON 16 oz. Fiberglass Handle White/Black Rubber Mallet delivers a softened strike, protecting parts from damage. The versatile, multi-purpose head is made of two materials, a harder white compound that won't leave black marks and a softer black compound for a more cushioned blow. So, whether it's soft or hardwoods used in construction, cabinetry, and furniture or the chrome, aluminum or magnesium parts on cars, trucks and motorcycles, you can safely apply persuasion without hurting sensitive finishes or surfaces. Made from high-strength, lightweight fiberglass, the virtually unbreakable handle core naturally dampens stinging vibrations. A poly jacket completely surrounds and protects the core, absorbing the impact of any missed strikes. The soft, non-slip rubber grip is the ultimate in comfort and, since it is a directly integrated piece of the handle, it can never pull loose like hammers that use a push-on grip.
