Never beat steel on steel (for example, hammer or axe against axe). Also steel wedges must be driven in only with a hard wood or plastic hammer. Beating steel on steel can lead to splintering and cause severe accidents.
Aluminium and plastic wedges must be driven in with appropriate tools such as a splitting hammer. Only these tools are permanently suitable for driving in wedges due to their special design.
Use tools only for their intended purpose. Example: using the axe as a hammer is not using it for its intended purpose.
Check the tool before each use. There must be no material cracks on the head and handle. The head must be securely attached to the handle.
Wear appropriate protective clothing, for example safety glasses, gloves and safety shoes.
Do not use these tools for lateral leverage.
Use only original spare parts and spare wedges. To ensure a secure fit and therefore a secure joint between the head and the handle, the dimensions must precisely match.
