    Default Forcible Entry Prop Help

    Im in search of a forcible entry prop used in the forcible entry class at FDIC in 2012. After searching the web, I can't find any pictures or info on it and I thought some of you may be able to help me. It's not the blue door from Firehouse Innovations (We have it and love it).

    This door used threaded rod as the consumable and it was tightened down using a turnbuckle on the threaded rod that angled off to the side of the door. I didn't know if this was a commercially built door or a homemade prop.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Friction Force is what we have

    It's a good training tool but I don't think it is very realistic.

    The Massachusttes Fire Academy has one of these. It does take a beating in the figurative and the literal sense. The "MacGyvers" in the Academy's Support Services Division welded some angle iron plates onto it to reinforce it.
