Boat tool failure – checking with SeaDog to see about support

Posted By on November 22, 2015

SeaDog_IMG_5965The first time I tried to use my relatively new Sea-Dog Impeller Puller and it FAILED. Really bumming that the threads seized at first use and I had to resort to the needlenose pliers again. As soon as I applied a little torque to the T-handle, it froze in place. No amount of heat or “penetrant” would release the bind (zero corrosion). Even removing the thumb screw and placing in a bench vice with an extender bar on the T-handle would not encourage the threads to release. What could have bound this up so tight?

So after this post I’m going to contact the company and see if they will replace the tool … stay tuned below to see just what kind of support Sea-Dog Line offers to buyers of their tools? (FYI: purchased in December 2013)

Comments

  • Replace with out a problem … new tool and advice to add some anti-seize when storing it. Thanks for great customer service Sea-Dog.
