Pulling nails without heads

A simple trick for pulling out nails after their heads break.

My dad showed me a trick years ago. Instead of using vice grips, hook the hammer claw on the nail and then, instead of pulling straight toward you, pull at a 90° angle left or right. Works about 8.5 times out of ten. Of course, side cutters work as well as fence pliers.
