A hammer tacker (10) includes an outer housing (26) comprising a handle portion (14) and a head portion (12), the outer housing formed from a fiber reinforced polymer material. The hammer tacker also includes an elongated staple holder (38) carried at least partially within the outer housing, the elongated staple holder being slideable between a use position and a refill position. The outer housing having the fiber reinforced polymer material defines a channel (26D) extending through the handle portion and into the head portion, the channel configured to receive the staple holder. The staple holder is slidable along the channel of the outer housing between the use position and the refill position. The hammer tacker further includes a staple driver assembly (13) operable to drive a staple from the staple holder into a workpiece.

A utility knife (10) includes a folding handle (20) in which a neck (30) folds into a handle base (40). A neck lock (200) locks the neck in its closed or open position relative to the handle base. The neck is spring-biased toward its open position to assist in one-handed opening of the handle. A utility blade and blade holder (300) are slidably carried by neck for manual movement between retracted/protected and extended/exposed positions. The neck cannot be folded into or locked in the closed position if the blade is exposed.

A utility knife (10) includes a blade holder (300) slidably connected to the handle (20). A blade lock (400) pivotally connects to the blade holder for movement relative to the blade holder about a blade lock axis between a locked position and a released position. The blade lock axis forms an acute angle with a lateral direction of the knife so that a surface of the blade lock that is configured to engage the utility blade moves both laterally and vertically as the blade lock moves between its locked and released positions. A blade release trigger (500) is conveniently disposed well rearwardly of a front of the handle. The knife includes a sealed blade storage compartment (700) with a manually openable cover. A seal disposed between the compartment and cover discourages water and/or debris from getting into the compartment when the cover is closed.

A tool (10) includes a housing (20) and a slidable blade assembly (40) configured to move between a first, second and third positions. The blade assembly is configured to receive a removable blade (30), such that the blade is stored within the housing when the blade assembly is in the first position, a portion of the blade extends outwardly from the housing when the blade assembly is in the second position, and the blade is completely outside of the housing when the blade assembly is in the third position, facilitating removal from the blade assembly. The housing comprises a guide path associated with movement of the blade assembly. The guide path (130) includes a first path portion associated with the blade assembly being in the first position or the second position, and a second path portion associated with the blade assembly being in the third position, the first and second path portions being noncontiguous.

Disclosed is a rule assembly having a housing, a reel rotatably mounted in the housing, an elongated blade wound on the reel and extendable through an opening in the housing, and an end hook member attached to the elongated blade. A hook portion extends downwardly below a bottom surface of the housing when the blade is in a fully retracted position. The housing has an opening having an upper portion disposed above the blade. A flexible cover is attached to the housing overhanging the opening to inhibit or prevent penetration of debris therein. Alternatively the flexible cover is attached to the free end of the elongated blade. In both cases the cover is flexed by the end hook member upon impact by force (e.g., when dropped) and permits movement of the end hook member into the opening to reduce deformation of the end hook member.
