Warranty & Other bits you should know.

We have put our best effort into making these devices. I guess it took both of us to get it to market. We have spent many hours at airports, on the phone, in aeroplanes and cars seeing people and getting our product right. We really hope you get the uses we have out of your selection (we would like to think you got the lot!). Anyway if you have questions just drop me a line manager@prong.com.au

Caution.

Prongs rely on the principles of leverage which means force can be multiplied significantly. You are advised to not over exert yourself when using the Prongs. Only use as a digging or leveraging tool. Use gloves and shoes when digging into soil to protect hands and feet. Also use other Safety apparel you feel you might need e.g. goggles etc.

 

Maintenance

Prongs are made tough and durable but, like any tool, need some maintenance. Clean excess dirt off handles and rub over with light oils.

 

Directions for use

Place tine on surface of soil and use “heel” to place your foot, push/force Prong into the soil, then lever. If digging out roots, “nibble” around the root as far down as you can go. This softens the soil around the root and allows you to get a “feel” for where the best point of leverage will be. Once you are confident you have a hold then lever down slowly. The tine is shaped to act as a first lever and should provide upward leverage on the root. If more leverage is required then push downward further until the heel engages the ground. Keep downward pressure on handle. Dependent on the root or rock you are trying to move, repeat this process a few times. If soil is soft, place a brick or strong piece of wood under the heel when leveraging upward. This stops the heel from sinking into the soil and limiting leverage. Do not over exert effort on tine. Move around the object you wish to move. Prongs are tough but there is a limit.
