The World's Most Popular Forcible Entry Tool

The "Go To" Tool

The head and claw are forged from high alloy steel, heat-treated for maximum strength, then fitted to a 1” (2.5 cm) stress proof bar. The bar has machine grooved non-slip grips. The Hooligan Tool features a claw that is gently curved for maximum prying leverage. The claw opening is parallel and fits over locks, hasps, and many door bars. It can also be used as a nail puller and a gas shut off during emergencies. The “Highway Hooligan Tool” features a metal cutting claw with a machine sharpened metal cutter that uses the can opener principle to cut heavy gauge metal and composites.
