The Pro-Bar 24 INCH is as its name states 24" long. It is drop forged steel alloy and weighs 10lbs. The Pro-Bar (also called a Halligan bar, Halligan tool or simply Halligan) is a special tool commonly used in the fire and rescue service. It was designed by and named after Hugh Halligan, a First Deputy Fire Commissioner in the New York City Fire Department.
The Halligan is a multi-purpose prying tool consisting of a claw (or fork), a blade (or adz), and a pick, which is especially useful in quickly breaking through many types of locked doors. The fork end or adz (An edge tool used to cut and shape wood) can be used to break in through an outward swinging door by forcing the tool between the door and doorjamb and prying the two apart.
