K-tool vs. Officer's A-tool
So we are looking into purchasing some "core pulling" forcible entry tools for our Aid Cars due to the increased need to force doors on EMS alarms. I want to know what your experience is with both and which you would recommend for this type of operation. We have the A-tool on our engines already, but no K-tools so experience with these is limited. Obviously, it is dependent on the lock and we are dealing with mostly residential occupancies so the deadbolts often have large "beauty rings" as I call them, unlike the standard small circular commercial locks. Thanks for any suggestions.
(This is the type of lock I would say is on the majority of our structures)
