The EXTRACTOR portable pull-tester is ideal for your quality test on fixing fasteners. It allows you to evaluate easily in the field, the tensile pull-out force (commonly called extraction) of your fixing system on various substrate materials.
The Extractor fastener tester is specially designed for the following domains:
- Measure the pull-out force to validate a safe working load
- Check the correct installation of existing fixings
- Measure the withdrawal resistance of fasteners used for attachment of various components to various materials
- Proof the holding power of anchors
The Extractor fastener tester is an essential tool in building industries, where it is important to validate and check for faulty fixing anchors on both new and old construction.
This dedicated kit comes with a full range of accessories:
- A Pull tester (with its calibrated gauge 1000lb or 2000lb analog)
- Lifter foot for standard roofing screw LFS0250 (shank: 1/4” – Head: 5/8”)
- Lifter foot for rawl type fasteners LFR0437 (shank: 7/16” – Head: 1.0”)
- Lifter foot for NTB type fasteners LFN0468 (shank: 15/32” – Head: 2.0”)
How it works:
A tensile load is applied to the fixing mechanically using the hand crank of the pull-out tester. The dial gauge displays the peak pull-out force.

This purpose of this article is to inform you why pull testers are used with particular reference to their use in the construction industry and to provide relevant links.
As their name suggests, pull testers are used to carry out pull tests.
They are portable digital or analog force gauges and measurement devices used across a variety of industries to help assess and ensure product quality.
Today, the Com-Ten pull-out tester is accepted as the world standard for direct tensile test on roofing fasteners and construction, and the name Com-Ten is synonymous with the technique. Com-Ten has since the beginning of the 60's been forerunners in the development of fastener testers and mechanical attachment to suit almost all applications.
