Police Product Test: Shieldspike’s Hammerspike Glass-Breaker

With this durable, lightweight tool you can efficiently break a window with one hand and hold a shield with the other.
The vehicle assault is an often taught but seldom executed tactic in SWAT operations. Because it occurs so infrequently, officers tend to overlook a major component in the success of the mission: defeating the vehicle glass. This is important to allow a clear and unobscured view inside the compartment of the vehicle so the problem can be resolved with no loss of life to the hostage(s) and operators, and can be a challenge for many reasons. Fortunately, the Hammerspike makes breaking structure and vehicle glass much easier, whether for SWAT during an operation or for a first responder to rescue a trapped motorist.
