What First Responders Are Saying

My partner and I responded to a two car collision late one evening, and as we were arriving at the scene we found that one vehicle was engulfed in flames with two victims trapped inside. I retrieved my thick gloves from the trunk, ran to the passenger side and tried feverishly to pry open the door.


The flames and smoke were spreading so fast into the passenger area that these two victims died at the scene because they couldn’t be extricated quickly.


If only I had some type of hand-held prying device, I feel that I could have opened that door that night and pulled these two people from their burning car.

California Highway Patrolmen are often times the first ones on the scene of an accident. If each patrol car was equipped with a trunk lid-mounted Tug Rescue Tool rescue device, then the First Responders would have a better chance of saving lives.

Our Story

Honestly, it was created out of FRUSTRATION!!! After attending an auto extrication class in August of ’06, I went looking for the tool that the instructor had recommended. The instructor’s last words to me were, “Buy a bunch because they break!” I spent an hour and a half looking for the tool (with store employee help) and the tool was nowhere to be found. Frustrated, to say the least, on my way home I purchased a metal bender and 20′ of 3/8 round stock.
