EOD Robotics developed this compact breaching tool with input from Bomb Techs, SWAT Operators and Patrol Officers. All these folks need a tool for prying, cutting and pounding, and here's the answer.
We have some very good friends that are active C.E.R.T. (Community Emergency Response Team) members. They asked us to modify the EOD Robotics Breacher Bar to include a wrench for residential gas shut off valves. We modified a few, and then received a order to produce them in quantity for a entire team in Southern California.
Now we produce this very popular pry bar/utility tool exclusively for C.E.R.T. Personnel and those looking for some extra versatility shutting off gas valves, prying, cutting and pounding during emergencies.
Breacher & CERT Bar: 8.5" Long
Mid Breach: 6.5" Long
Here's What Our Over-Protective Legal Department Has To Say:
Although the EOD Breacher Tool was developed and designed to enter the real world of urban combat, and with a little work with a file, belt sander, grinder, stone or a rock to it could be sharpened and converted to a Deadly stabbing or slashing instrument we can't recommend it. Likewise, the flat on the handle end should not be used as a skull or rib crusher or for performing other blunt trauma. Sorry these are not returnable. Be safe, and don't play with matches or run with scissors.
I'm always picking up ideas from several sources concerning items to have for my EDC, medical emergency kits and bug-out bags, and these breacher bars are heavy and strong, but small enough for pack and carry. I like the fact that they have then with the gas shut-off slots as well. Good idea. I also purchased some paracord from here as well to wrap the bars, two in my case since I purchased two, and wrapped them according to the on-line video, which also gave me the idea. Happy I made the purchase.
I've bought 2 of these, and that's only because I lost the first one. These are fantastic tools. They need a bit of work in the beginning, but after that they're ready to do some damage. I've used them to get thru drywall, break concrete, dig, chop, gouge, notch, pull nails, and even for pulling frames from beehives. Coupled with the kydex sheath County Comm offers, your on your way to getting things handled. Fantastic product, I highly recommend it.
Just got mine, LOVE IT! Having a punching, gouging, scraping, breaking, prying tool on my belt is super handy- especially when I'm already under a truck and don't want to get back up.
PLEASE- make one of these the size of the mid-breacher, with a Tek-Lok sheath, in TITANIUM.
