Double-Tap Technology

Our tools are the only tools on the market that use this technology. It cost us a great deal to incorporate it but we maintain our position on providing a tool that far exceeds all others while still being competitively priced. Double-Tap technology is Patent Pending.

The Double-Tap system uses a proprietary "Floating Mass" technology inside designated hammer heads and our Heavy/Light Rams. This technology can better be explained by Newton's Laws of Motion and Galileo's Concept of Inertia listed below. But here's the short version.

Explanation: In an impact (Such as a hammer blow or strike from a ram) the energy is transferred from the moving object (Tool) to the stationary object (Target) in one motion. The goal for the breacher is to use as much of that energy as possible in the first and if necessary subsequent blows. Double-Tap technology helps you to do this by reducing or in most cases eliminating the vibration that is created when the tool strikes the target. That energy is then put to more efficient use and transferred into the target and not back into the tool. With most collapsible breaching tools the rear
of the handle can experience extensive vibration when used against most targets. Our tools were designed to overcome this problem. No other tool on the market does this. The initial idea was to produce a tool with less vibration in the handle by using existing "Dead Blow Hammer" technology. After detailed analysis and design changes, the final product proved to be better than expected with the complete absence of handle vibration and additional energy transfer into the target. The end result was a tool that uses all available energy to defeat the target as quickly as possible allowing rapid access into the structure.

Newton's First Law of Motion: I. Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it. This we recognize this as essentially Galileo's concept of inertia, and this is often termed simply the "Law of Inertia".

Newton's Second Law of Motion: II. The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors. In this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of
the acceleration vector. This is the most powerful of Newton's three Laws, because it allows quantitative calculations of dynamics: how do velocities change when forces are applied. According to Newton an object with a certain velocity maintains that velocity unless a force acts on it to cause an acceleration. Newton's Third Law of Motion: lll. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Galileo and the Concept of Inertia: Perhaps Galileo's greatest contribution to physics was his formulation of the concept of inertia: an object in a state of motion possesses an ``inertia'' that causes it to remain in that state of motion unless an external force acts on it. Most objects in a state of motion do NOT remain in that state of motion. For example, a block of wood pushed at constant speed across a table quickly comes to rest when we stop pushing. Thus, Aristotle held that objects at rest remained at rest unless a force acted on them, but that objects in motion did not remain in motion unless a force acted constantly on them. Galileo, by virtue of a series of experiments realized that the analysis of Aristotle was incorrect because it failed to account properly for a hidden force: the frictional force between the surface and the object.
