  • TeleCrib® JUNIOR
    The TeleCrib® Junior is a compact and fast all-in-one strut designed for basic stabilization. Specifically designed for Engines/Pumpers, they allow First Due Rescuers to stabilize a vehicle within minutes of arrival....


    First Due Crews (typically staffed on Engines/Pumpers) are often the first on scene for a vehicle crash. In the event of a side or roof resting vehicle, stabilization should be done as quickly as possible to provide a safe working environment for both patients and rescuers. A pair of TeleCrib® Juniors can be taken from apparatus to vehicle, and set up by one person in preparation for extrication and patient care.

    The TeleCrib® Junior is the only strut that can be used in both a prop style (ratchet strap attached to the head) and tension buttress style (ratchet strap attached to the vehicle or to another strut) configuration, giving rescuers a versatile tool for vehicle stabilization.

    Our Junior struts have optional engine compartment mounting brackets allowing you to make use of ceilings and walls for precisely organized storage, and help you get more life-saving tools into less space.  Pair them up with our Shark Jr's. and you have first due stablization capability, at a low cost.

  • New!  Laminated Glass Cutter - The Ripper™

    The Ripper™ laminated glass cutter enables all first responders to “punch-and-cut” windshields, and passenger side windows, with an all-in-one design that provides fast and safe access to patients for immediate care.  

    The Ripper™ has been engineered specifically for window glass management.  The Ripper™ is an all-in-one solution for Fire Fighters, First Responders, Paramedics and Law Enforcement.  It uses common cordless impact drivers, non-proprietary batteries, and features a high-speed cutting blade that can both pierce and cut any laminated vehicle glass.

    Your Department Needs Laminated Glass Cutters!

    Effective September 1, 2018 Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 226 (FMVSS 226) established requirements for ejection mitigation systems to reduce the likelihood of complete and partial occupant ejections through side windows during rollover or side impact events.  The standard applies to all passenger cars, multipurpose vehicles, trucks and buses with a GVWR of 4,536 kg or less.

    This change is expected to add 17 million new vehicles per year to America’s roadways with laminated glass side windows.  Glass management will now require both punches to shatter tempered/safety glass and laminated glass cutters.  Punches will not shatter laminated glass.  A second issue related to patient safety requires the use of non-intrusive blade systems on side windows to avoid striking patients or uncooperative suspects while removing laminated glass.
