Founded as a puller company, OTC is rooted in removing stuck or frozen vehicle parts. A slide hammer is a vital tool for every technician to own. The idea originated from the need to pull small vehicle parts without adding an unnecessary amount of force and risking breakage. The slide allows for a controlled movement to remove gears, bearings and seals.

Storage and display

The tool is packaged in a blow molded plastic case. Store the case with the label out to show technicians what’s in the case, including the hammer and adapters.
