The goal in designing the Snagger Tool was to provide as small, light, strong, and convenient a tool as possible in an electrically non-conductive material. It is designed to be carried in your bunker gear pocket and be available right when you need it. It limits the number of tools you carry to the fireground.
The tungsten carbide tip is perfect for breaking tempered glass, quickly and without effort.
What's the best spanner wrench tool for firefighters? "Look I have broke so many spanner wrenches. I have seen some snap in two with a moderate force in order to break a coupling apart. It's frustrating and without gloves, it sucks on the knuckles. The old style aluminum spanner wrenches are terrible. Others don't want to invest in the money to make better ones, because they are disposable.
The Snagger Tool is different. It's made of strong aluminum that doesn't break like the others. Plus you get additional functionality. 1 3/4 hose lines are easy to work around corners and down long stretches of hallways. This is a tool you'll love both on the fire scene and on the EMS (boooo) operation. This is a great tool that I have personally used." Sean Lawson Owner of ThePublicSafetyStore.com
This small groove is designed to grip the tabs on any size of firehose coupling. This groove makes the Snagger Tool the perfect hose wrench, with its single size being perfect for all couplings. It will also fit the valve stem on an O2 cylinder in a pinch.
Then Snagger Tool is "Hard-Coat" anodized giving it a more durable, non-conductive and scratch resistant finish. The grooved grip gives a more comfortable and universal grip for hands of all sizes. The peaks of the groves also dig into the charged firehose for better grip.
This side of the tool is meant for gripping 38mm (1 3/4") hoseline as well as various sizes of forestry line. When charged line is snagged" by this tool the hand is automatically turned 90 degrees from its normal position on a fire hose giving the firefighter improved posture, more strength, less fatigue and a much safer position in relation to the fire and the hoseline.
This side is meant for 65mm (2 ½") hose line performing the same functions as listed in number 4.
The groove here is to allow the Snagger to grip the tabs on Stortz couplings and larger diameter couplings.
The hardened wedge tip is for penetrating drywall or wall board. It will also go through a standard windshield and can be used to cut the windshield away rapidly. This cutting of a windshield will leave pitting in the tool, though, so only use it in an emergency.
