Gerber's New "Ding Dong" Sledgehammer Is The Anti-Doorbell

Thor’s hammer “Mjölnir” may or may not have ever existed in Asgård, but Gerber has made something that almost measures up to our mental image of that Norse mythological blacksmithing. It’s called the Gerber Ding Dong Breaching Tool. Have it, and you’ll never need to knock again.

This masterpiece (born in Portland, Oregon) has captured our hearts and features three critical elements: a sledgehammer, battering ram, and a crowbar, all built into one device that can huff and puff and blow someone’s door down.

Improving upon Thor’s short-handled Mjölnir—Loki screwed that up for him, if you’ll recall—this puppy has a two-handed fiberglass handle with stops molded into the handle, improving the ergonomics whilst you ram.

Built into the Ding Dong’s head are small cross-hatchings—allowing the head to really bite into the door—thereby leaving all force transferred to cave in whatever portcullis needs to be smashed.
