Our Halligan Bars are designed with feedback from firefighters telling us what they want and need in a Halligan tool.
Our Halligans come ”tuned” right out of the box with reference lines on the forks and adz for setting the tool during conventional forcible entry. They have squared shoulders, and thin forks for those tight door forces. The adz end has a smooth striking surface to eliminate awkward striking angles, and is designed to help prevent “skinning” an outward swinging door, flatter than previous models. The forks have a one inch spread between the tines to remove doorknobs for through-the-lock techniques. Lastly, we understand fire company pride and clean tools, that’s why we finish our Halligan Bars with a Zinc coating to help prevent rust and make this tool easy to clean.
Leatherhead Tools uses traditional forging and high carbon steel to produce our bars. Our team takes it one step further, every forged bar is tested for strength from pick end to fork end before it leaves our shop.
