    Question FE Equipment

    How do you store/carry your forcible entry equipment (K-tool, Hydra-Ram, etc.), in a bag or loose? If in a bag, what type of bag and what other tools are included?

    Thanks,

    Our K-Tool and Ram are in a bag that came from the dealer. It's a very durable black bag a little smaller than a gym bag and everything fits in there nice and snug. I would suggest you just get a sturdy bag to slip it in.

    Our K-Tool came in a leather pouch w/a strap. Kept in the same compartment as the irons and maul.

    We carry the hydra ram with a strap, the bag gets in the way. The k tool is kept in the glove box, if you have time to go thru the lock you have time to call for it or go get it. The adz of the halligan or an officer tool do well for pulling cylinders too.
