Sometimes you’ve got to get in fast. Ringing the doorbell might not be an option, or perhaps no one is home. Whatever your intention–be it criminal or rescue–I can think of nothing better than Gerber’s poorly named Ding Dong Breaching tool. The device combines a sledgehammer, battering ram, and pry-bar into one tool that can be attached to your pack (MOLLE compatible).
The enlarged hammer head features machined cross-hatching that effectively bites into doors and other surfaces as you smash into them, minimizing slip and maximizing impact. The enlarged pry bar at the end of the handle is perfect for wedging into door frames. The Ding Dong’s fiberglass handle features two molded rings equally spaced to create mechanical stops for the operator’s hands, ensuring a solid grip when swinging at or ramming objects. The Ding Dong comes with a unique mounting system – a fiberglass plate that mounts to MOLLE gear. The Ding Dong mechanically snaps into the carrying plate and is held by a quick-detach heavy rubber strap. Proudly built in Portland, Oregon.
I’m not sure how much its costs – I’m not a first responder so I can’t sign into the site.. aww.
