Allows the operator to use a ballistic shield to cover their neck and face during a vehicle window breach.
The tool’s design and positioning keeps the operators hands away from the glass preventing injury.
Promotes team efficiency by integrating the ability of an operator to maintain cover with a ballistic shield while simultaneously performing a window breach.
Promotes the principle of economy of motion. Striking a window with the ShieldspikeTM is a more efficient gross motor movement than swinging a pry tool or baseball bat.

Works best on sturdy ballistic shields with minimal flex
