PD-4 Hard Drive Destroyer

The PD-4 Hard Drive Destroyer physically destroys hard drives by bending, breaking, and mangling the hard drive and its internal components—including the data platters. Using a rugged stainless-steel crushing wedge, the PD-4 bends the data platters preventing the hard drive from “spinning up” or for the hard disk platters from being removed and placed on a spin stand used in laboratory data recovery techniques. The PD-4 also cracks the hard-drive housing, breaks the PC board, and smashes the read-write heads. Best for use after degaussing, the PD-4 ensures total hard drive destruction.
