    How to unjoin these?? 15th Mar 17 at 5:09 PM
    Hi all,

    Taken up decking and the foundations are joined together with this bracket. Loads of them, what is the best way to remove them? Can't get nails out, Ideally preserving the wood to use elsewhere.

    Thank you

    Jemmy Bar?

    Never heard of a 'pry bar' - is that the same?

    I would also agree use a pry bay to move the bracket till you can grip the nail heads with the claw on a claw hammer,job done.
    ITS NOT EASY TO GET EVERYTHING WRONG ,I HAVE TO WORK HARD TO DO IT!
