Ratings & Reviews
Used fire hooks unlimited tools for years and had no problem with them. My Fire company bought a 30"" pro bar on my recommendation. First time using it the spike bent. After a month of myself and The fire Store, making calls to Fire hooks and speaking to Bob the owner, we got know where.
One of the best halligans
This halligan sets the bar for all other halligans, I have used mine to force a lot of doors, weak doors and strong doors, It has held up well. The single piece construction is rock solid. The fork is narrow enough to fit between tight doors and the jamb and strong enough to apply tremendous amounts of force. If you are serious about forcing doors there area few easy modifications you can make that make the tool more versatile and user friendly (search fine tuning your halligan) Over all this is my favorite fire service tool, never leave the rig without it.
PRO-BAR ONE PIECE 30 INCH IS NOT JUNK
WE HAVE 1/4 MILLION PRO-BARS IN SERVICE. THESE ARE THE PREFERED FORCIBLE ENTRY TOOL USED IN THE LARGEST CITIES IN THE U.S. EXAMPLE, NEW YORK CITY BOSTON, CHICAGO TO SAY A FEW. JEFF IN PA. CALLING THE PRO-BAR JUNK,INSULTS THE THOUSANDS OF CAREER FIREFIGHTER USING THE BAR DAILY WITH GREAT SUCCESS AND WITHOUT FAILURE. THE PRO-BAR IS GUARANTEED UNCONDITIONALLY. IF A PROBLEM IS FOUND, SEND THE BAR BACK TO WHERE YOU PURCHASED IT. THEY WILL CHECK FOR ANY FAULTS IF ANY, AND WILL SEND TO ME FOR CORRECTION OR REPLACEMNT. BOB FARRELL C.E.O., F.H.U.
The pro bars are great. My dept. uses junk 3 piece hooligans, and we have been trying to get them to order the pro bars. They are similar in price, but are designed to do the task at hand. Slim forks, and the curve in the ads makes wrapping the door less of a head ache. I had the pleasure of using the pro bar at the Metro Atlanta FIrefighter Conference, in the forcible entry class put on by East Coast Rescue Solutions, as well as in the Iron FF Challenge at MAFFC. If I ever make the call on what halligan to order, it will be a Pro Bar.
Best tool on the market
Best forcible entry tool out there. Never leave the rig with out it!
There is a reason all other entry bars are judged off of the ProBar. I completed the necessary modifications and married it to my entry tool of choice, (not available through this retailer)
exactly what I wanted !
Comes in handy when I drive personal vehicle to the scene
Made for Lefties
I've always loved a Halligan. Swing it like a baseball bat, sink the claw into the jam, and and drop your hip on the fork.
"How much does the Halligan weigh? What is the tensile strength of the Halligan? What is the concensus in regards to customer satisfaction?"
Good Afternoon, The Pro-Bar, 30"", weigh's in at 12Lbs. I couldn't find anything on the tensile strength for this tool, as far as customer satisfaction i've never heard of any complaints, it's just about the most asked for Haligan or Hooligan style bar that is sold, if it's not number 1, then it's 1A, in sales.
"how much does the 24"" halligan weigh?"
"is the length the overall length or is it jut the handle length (not including the forks)?"
it's the over all lenght
"What is the difference between with or without the ring? Is it available for all lengths of the Pro Bar?"
There are 4 different lengths of the Pro-Bar, 24"", 30"", 36"", and 42"", FHU offers the option of with or without the ring on the 30"" bar, we stock both bars; the ring is attached to the bar on the fork end, you can see a picture of this on our web page, if you would like to have 1 of the other bars with the ring added, it can be special ordered, and FHU will custom make for us.
"WHere is it made?"
USA! it's either New Jersey, or New York
"What are the dimensions of the 30""halligan bar without a ring, when shipped? I am assuming it is shipped in a box of some sort if you can advise the box size thanks"
It is shipped, and wrapped as too not cause damage to the product, or to injure anyone in handling it while it is in shipping. As far as in a box that is decided by the shipper/ship dept, and we won't know anything on how or when, it is shipped. I will say this it will be 30 inch's long at least.
"What is the width of the ADZ on this bar as apposed to that of the WIDE-ADZ bar?"
The width of the ADZ end on this bar is 2"".
"WHere is it made?"
