Hurst Tool Technique for Removing Doors Simultaneously
Effective when: 4 Side impact has the front door pushed up against the victims legs. 4 Front impact has the B-post blocking access to the victim. 4 Anytime removing both doors is necessary. 4 Front door damaged to the point that it is difficult or not possible to force.
Getting started: 4 Stabilize the scene, vehicle, and the victim 4 Remove all the vehicle glass 4 With spreaders, force the rear door from the Nader pin/Latch pin
Once rear door is forced: 4 Expose the seatbelt mechanism at the bottom of the B-post 4 Place cutters under the mechanism and make as deep of cut as possible into the B- post 4 Cut the top of the B- post
After cuts are made: 4 With the spreaders, place one tip on the rocker panel and the other near the bottom hinge of the rear door. 4 Start to spread. You may need to readjust the spreaders or make a 2nd cut in the bottom of the B-post
End result: 4 Once you begin spreading, the entire B-post should start to rip away from the rocker panel,taking with it the rear door and the front door as one piece
