Armpit fire hose / Firefighting Equipment

Armpit fire hose

Existing fire nozzles(pistol type) are difficult for fire fighters to bear because of high water pressure and must be supported from behind by 2~3 people since there is no handhold. For these reasons, this new fire nozzle is designed in order that it is easy to hold because the holding force is stable using shoulder-launching, and handle in front is conceived as the circular shape to grip easily with any posture. Also, since the nozzle is sustained by shoulder, it is employed stably as long as the user only applies downward force to prevent the rebound of water pressure.
