    Default My side gig....thanks for the help!!

    A few months back I had requested some help for bending handles. Anyways, I made this multi purpose battering ram/SWAT type tool for a friend's new company. Anyways, it's called the jersey boot and I have made the first 100. It's been a good learning experience and money maker too. Dave http://youtube.com/watch?v=wmSnRPHsgtM

    That's a pretty cool tool. Nice pitch. Congrats. But, yeah, the text in that video needs work.

    I've been on a tactical unit for 19yrs and I really like your Jersey Boot!!! We use a homemade battering ram and call it the "Key" because it will open just about any door in town. We use 3 of them and use them daily mostly on search warrant services (used one just last night on a weed house). Door breaching is a science/there's a lot more to it than just breaking down a door. The Jersey Boot incorporates a lot more than just busting in a door, ripping hinges, knobs, padlocks, windows, doors that open in and doors that open out, your tool seems to cover most aspects of door breaching. Congradulations on this device. Please get a patent on this device and develop a good marketing technique. There are numerous tactical magazines out there and nearly every state has a tactical event at least once a year, most involve swat competitions. I developed a "flashbang pole" about 10yrs ago, now a similar device is available for sale.
    From someone who has been in the Swat business for a long long time-good job, I speak for a lot of hard working guys when I say thanks for making our job safer!!

    "One tool does it all" - but you need two of them to do most of what they were showing.

    Nothing in that video couldn't be better accomplished with a 12# maul for far less money or space in the squad car.

    Default Hate to spoil the party..

    Hate to spoil the party but.....pry-rams are already out there and used by S.W.A.T, Police and military all over the world. I'm not a huge fan of violence so I would have to give it a 1 with my personal opinion being that welding should be used to provide for man not to destroy. Maybe it's just me but that's my 2 cents.
