Channellock Rescue Tool

rescue_tool.jpgMost of us aren't equipped with the right amounts of bravery and selflessness to be a firefighter, But if you want that same feeling without all the smoke and flames, Channellock has released the 6 in 1 Rescue Tool. The tool is designed by a firefighter and even though it's intended for firefighters, it's a one stop emergency tool that would do well in just about any glove compartment.

The tool, which looks like a mutated set of linesman pliers, has six functions; clamping, cutting, prying, shattering, tightening, and shutting off gas valves. Now you too can be just like Denis Leary.

The Rescue Tool sells at Channellock for about $70, but it can be gotten elsewhere for under $50.

Read about the firefighter who designed the tool here.
