A sledgehammer. A battering ram. A pry bar. All three are essential breaching tools for operators who need to get through doors quickly. The Ding Dong combines these three tools into one tight package. The enlarged hammer head features machined cross-hatching that effectively bites into doors and other surfaces as you smash into them, minimizing slip and maximizing impact. The enlarged pry bar at the end of the handle is perfect for wedging into door frames.

The Ding Dong's fiberglass handle features two molded rings equally spaced to create mechanical stops for the operator's hands, ensuring a solid grip when swinging at or ramming objects. The Ding Dong comes with a unique mounting system - a fiberglass plate that mounts to MOLLE gear. The Ding Dong mechanically snaps into the carrying plate and is held by a quick-detach heavy rubber strap.

We have these for our department. We purchased 8 for patrol so the officers would have a option for mechanical entry. Seemed like a good idea with a ram,sledge and pry bar all in 1 package. To this date
we have broken 3 of these in the past year. The tips on the fork or pry end broke off 2 of them and we just broke another at the fork attempting to prying a person out of a vehicle the was stuck in vehicle after a serious crash who need immediate medical attention. The bars have failed 3 times and we are now looking for another option for forced entry tools.

This tool even failed when we put it through a few runs on a stand alone breaching door to train on.
Decent concept, poor execution in making the product.

Junk! The metal ends are in the plastic handle only few inches. The least little bit of torque trying to pry and it pulls apart. I even asked about this before buying and was told it wouldn’t happen. If I could give negative stars I would have. We have several of these that are now door stops

A great tool for dealing with a variety of problems one way encounter. Helps Me Get Through The Workday, Although It's Not Very Effective For Breaching Doors From What I've Seen. I Recommend To Anyone Looking To Get In, Do Some Damage, And Get Out.

$400 for a 12 lb sledge that broke when using the pry bar feature. Glad the tax payers paid for it and not me. We will not order any more for our breaching kits.

Two forged ends with fiberglass in the middle? Sorry, this isn't going to last. As a firefighter who has experience breaching doors and such, if its not all one piece (Google: Pro Bar) it will break at some point when it reaches its limit (Google: Halligan).

You want a good breaching tool? Google The Pig.

You wouldn't believe what all you can knock down with this thing. Served me through some tough times, it's even good in situations with a lot of heat.

I don't even have this piece of equipment, but I don't have to. Just look at this colossal beast. One might say "oh it's too heavy". You know what I say? I say shut the hell up and own it like a man. If you can't handle 12 pounds of pure unadulterated man, then you should just bury yourself 6 feet underground. I wish I could get my hands on one of these things. So many doors would be broken down in the span of an hour after receiving it. You'd be sitting on your couch at home, watching American Idol and BOOM your door would be busted in like a half pound of C4 was placed on it. You wouldn't even have time to react to the destruction brought upon your door. I'm huffing and puffing just writing this review and I just learned about it 2 minutes before I wrote it. I absolutely will buy this once I become a Marine. Of course I wont bring this out in the field. I just want the credentials to buy it. Holy mother of hell, this would bring destruction even to Mjölnir, Thor's hammer.
