    Default Rescue tool mounting brackets

    Anyone know of any companies that make mounting brackets for extrication tools?

    Specifically I am looking for a bracket that will hold a Maverick tool and a cutter at roughly a 60 degree angle.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    We cheated. We took a standard tool mount and placed a small metal wedge under it to achieve the angle we want.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    It's been quite a while, but I think you can still deal direct with them.

    We went to our local welding shop and had them make what we wanted. Then to secure the tools in place we used some of the long P.A.C. straps to hold in place.

    If you can get the angle, our horizontal mounts would work for you. They come with or without a hold down strap also.
