Removing the hinge pins from an outward-swing door is a valid -- if rather direct -- means of gaining illicit entry. Unless the door and frame have been equipped with countermeasures (such as a security hinge, jamb pins, or a captive pin) this is often a very effective tactic. In some instances, this tactic can even provide greater access to plunger-based or magnetic door position sensors.
Of course, the removal of hinge pins is typically accomplished with large hand tools: a hammer and a punch. This innovative spring tool design, however, requires no bulky or blunt objects to be swung. Simply extend the two halves apart and let go, allowing the snap-action to deliver a blow from the lower block right into the small punch tip.
