The purpose of these tools is to deliver a sharp blow to free the pipe if it becomes stuck in the hole. Hydraulic jars are activated by a straight pull and give an upward blow. Mechanical jars are preset at surface to operate when a given compression load is applied and give a downward blow. Jars are usually positioned at the top of the drill collars.
