Jaws of Life

Commonly referred to as jaws of life, what we call cutters, and also spreaders and telescoping rams are all hydraulic tools used in vehicle extrications. Incredibly powerful, once they get a purchase on vehicle metal, a firefighter may let go of the heavy tool and just control the throttle.

The Nader bolt keeps your vehicle door closed in an accident and is made of high strength steel (HSS) with a tensile rating of up to 102 ksi; it’s the toughest piece of metal on any car. There is ONE person in this world that can pop a Nader bolt and get you out of a wreck: a firefighter.
