And Ray Hickock of Hickock Leather managed to destroy his company and flush employee pensions down the hole by betting he would own the automotive seatbelt business....

That didn't go over well at all and eventually brought Federal Pension Regulations.

Sort of like a hand impact on steroids.
Best used on gun with trigger feathering.

Looks to be a 3/8 drive shaft to put in your air hammer to vibrat the rust bond loose. Use that on a spot welded nut would brake it loose from the floor.

Best used in a gun with featherable trigger for sure, action is no different from the hand twist & hammer device carried in thousands of toolboxes in the hope it will never be needed.
I believe Mayhew offers it in both 3/8 and 1/2 drives.

If the spotwelds let loose you got bigger problems and need to fishplate the floor anyhow if that seatbelt is going to be around you. Odd recollection comes tomind, in the early 60s when retrofitting belts ($2.98/belt at Chevron Stations) the common install was to drive a punch thru the floor & carpet.

Be forewarned if you buy one, these devices evaporate from toolboxes never to be seen again.
