Rapid Assault Tools Tool Manufacture and Training Simulation for Forced Entry and Breaching


Since 2002, Rapid Assault Tools (RATOOLS®) has manufactured forced entry and breaching tools and accessories, training and simulation products for the law enforcement and military community.

RATOOLS takes the time to listen to those on the frontline, asking how to make their jobs safer and more efficient. This knowledge was invested in RATOOLS’ products, and as a result the company’s products have gained worldwide distribution and a reputation for innovation and long-life performance.

The main criteria that are taken into account of all RATOOLS products are mobility, ease-of-use and reliability, and a commitment to product excellence and customer satisfaction.

Forced entry tools

Rapid Assault Tools manufactures a wide range of tools for tactical breaching that are well-suited for time-critical missions. These products have been engineered and proven in operations involving military and security units, police, SWAT teams and first responder units, to name a few.

The forced entry tools are also sold as complete kits with backpacks that can include a combination of the following products: bolt cutters, Halligan tools, pry bars, tactical sledgehammers, extendable axes, hydraulic spreaders, hydraulic bolt cutters and tactical door rams.

RATOOLS’ tactical entry door battering rams are available in several models to suit any mission requirements, and their reliability makes them the best in the industry. Whether clients need a portable ram or non-conductive ram, Rapid Assault Tools has the product to suit the mission.

Hydraulic forced entry equipement

In addition to these tactical breaching tools, RATOOLS’ hydraulic forced entry products are designed for multi-purpose use and portability to make them useful to a wide variety of operational requirements. A few examples of the hydraulic tools available include: hydraulic door jamb spreaders, door pushing tools, hydraulic bolt cutters and hydraulic door wedges that can all be incorporated with the company’s portable 8,000lb hydraulic foot pump or battery-powered pump.

First responder tools

Law enforcement, first responders and Special Forces all require reliable tools that can help them gain immediate forced entry when they are the first personnel on the scene.

The US-made, First Responders RatKit is particularly suitable for forced entry in school or business lockdown operations. Manufactured from rugged Cordura® fabric and featuring an ergonomic design, the back allows for quick removal of the mechanical entry tools. Users can also open the flap and pull out the Minuteman II Ballistic Shield with level 3A protection for additional protection.

The Pre-Deployed RatBox is the industry’s first pre-deployed forced entry kit that stands ready-to-use 24/7. The high-quality, locked, weather-tight enclosure can be unlocked and opened by authorized personnel to quickly access forced entry tools.

Tactical training doors and windows

Rapid Assault Tools’ door and window training tools offer a cost-effective and realistic solution in forced entry training. These US-made training aids are manufactured with optimal design, innovation and quality at the forefront to ensure their reliability.

Security personnel can be trained on multiple entry operations with the All-In-One RatDoor™. This all-in-one tactical training door enables students to practice breaches in mechanical (pry bar and ram), hydraulic, shot-gun and explosive. As the door does not use consumables, continuous training operations can continue to carry out training courses without the high cost of replaceable inserts.

RATOOLS enables operators to train staff in tactical window breaching through the RatWindow™ break-and-rake entry method. The operator first ‘breaks’ the reusable window inwards, then rakes out the ‘shards’ before making entry. The ‘shards’ can be easily reassembled into their original positions for the next training scenario, making it more cost-effective, cleaner and less hazardous than conventional training tools.

Vehicle entry equipment

RATOOLS manufactures a wide variety of vehicle entry equipment, including window punches, window rakes, vehicle inspection mirrors and vehicle lockout kits. The company has even designed an air-powered passenger train door opener for quick and quiet train entry.

Specialized security tools

As the defence industry’s challenges change with each new operation and technological development, RATOOLS is dedicated to creating innovative solutions that provide answers to the needs of this market. From tactical helmet counterweights, to grappling hooks, to hinge pullers, to chain link fence climbing brackets, to padlock busters, and more, RATOOLS’ range of products can find a solution to any requirement.
