Abstract:

The tool has a base plate with at least one hole formed therein that is sized to form an interference fit with the ends of the tube initiator that will reside within the devices explosive material. A spacer is attached to the plate and extends away from the plate in the same direction as the tube initiator. A handle or grip is attached to the plate and extends away from the plate in a direction opposite that of the spacer.
