'Mornin'<br>I'm looking for a small pry tool for a 72 hr kit, or car, or briefcase to use in the event of earthquake or building collapse etc. I've seen a metal tool roughly the shape of a hammer which has gas and water shuttoff wrenches and a pry end. the other choice is a folding firemans spannerwrench with gas wrench seatbelt cutter glass punch and pry end.<br>Which would any of you choose.<br>Gall's happens too sell both of these tools.<br>thanks<br>JB

There is a small, titanium crowbar imported from Russia ( sovietski.com, see retail list). It is very robust ( and comparably expensive). The emegency shut off wrenches come in plastic at most hardware stores for a few dollars.

I retain a run of the mill 30 inch iron crowbar beneath my bed (living in earthquake country as I do) in case I ever have to claw my way out of the remains of my shattered residence. IIn the garage I stash a hefty six foot long prybar. Leverage is everything in a prying tool. I wouldn't bother with small or with titanium unless weight was critical.

I have a regular crowbar in my truck, but I'm looking for a smaller one to carry in/with a backpack. I also like the idea of the gas shutoff built in. I guess your right that a 12" bar is going to have minimal prying abilities.
