John Buck night he would like Perot and we haven't -- the training minutes we have a prop here it simulates -- -- opening metal doors. And the problem that we're gonna try to address is you by yourself. You have a hook and -- -- And you want to try to get the store's going to be it's not the preferred way it's tough way to do it. Mike initially might try to take the ads. -- It's really moves -- -- able to walk. Force -- steadily. And and pry -- and that you -- -- purchase but in this instance is no way generally it does not work it. I'm not a preferred method of all -- you can try to use the book as a striking tool. -- stabilizing the hook it got me hooked into the book on the ground is gonna put his heel on that. Stabilizing. And drive him at that that that's the way like the first. On the roof could maybe use the F foot oak brook. Drive it into the -- -- again stabilize the -- It's totally destroyed approval. -- -- much impact out of this tool it's it's a very lightweight tool. So even if you're in the middle of this process and another fight but it came up and they how -- how. -- -- -- -- -- -- Acts I would stop. And allow that to join you -- so Mike's gonna show us now he's gonna try ticket purchase. By using that took -- -- -- -- -- It's not making much. What's progress and I would say that that's probably fail it could think on what he's gonna announced demonstrated another trip that you could try. Threw up possibly -- that a little more curfew there that it would that the odds of that. I wanna who don't wanna get leading edge of the war. The play all the little more for me to make it easier it's either -- -- or haven't played over so -- I don't -- these doubles anymore I can. Plan that is -- questions -- To get this tool -- be on what I wanted to do is I'm gonna beat the clock. -- 45 inches there and in this area here what's -- look -- it is the leading edge -- what's gonna happen is when it's -- part of forced us to make its way toward the back and at a resort normally you're just gonna play over to me a little bit -- and he -- a little bit inspections that -- -- it -- -- get the tool and if I just had this. I could do that -- point racquet -- it by myself what I have that tool with the and so longer -- enough. Give me a little -- -- slider -- Mike let me ask you one question does it if you strike. Striking -- -- seems to be better -- it's -- the -- with the you know I've done it that way because some left and then on the side door. It's war. With a -- -- that right let's -- we took care. Right away got a nice opener right away a right at this point I can use that. Hope the way I did before drive me -- but I got so much of and actually now I just thought. Question is still. -- myself. Now. I still can't get the -- -- actually pointed to a separated. So wrong and I have to do is gonna have to -- -- to come towards me. That's it's like me I think that the ads -- like that crushed I don't let it get the -- to the back to the law. Work towards -- walk -- putting. Pushing out working toward Jerusalem. So -- showed -- -- with some simple techniques and little assistance. One firefighter by himself with a colleague in and book and even did it to somebody stopped Lewis. That's been another -- minute I'm John -- -- -- well thanks a lot.
