Obscure Burglary Tools of the Day: Ninja Rocks

Recommended Posts

maint_sparkplug_beru_lg.jpg

 

Ninja rocks are small bits of the ceramic from spark plugs, used by crackheads and jerkoffs to break any of the tempered glass on a car (anything except the windshield). Usually the door glass.

 

All your average crackhead needs to do to make some ninja rocks is to find a spark plug and smash the ceramic insulator part into about 1/2 to 1/4 inch bits. Then they just need to throw them at a car door glass and steal the 2 dollars in quarters and red Phillies hat from off of my seat while I’m eating Pho in the Vietnamese place. I hate crackheads.

 

What makes the whole thing so bizarre is that the ninja rocks don’t feel like they could break anything, they’re extremely light. A rock of similar size off the ground wouldn’t do it, but ninja rocks do. Why?

 

It has to do with hardness. Glass is actually “harder” than iron on the Mohs scale, and spark plug ceramic (technically called “aluminium oxide ceramic”) is much harder than glass. Aluminium oxide ceramic actually rates a 9 on the Mohs scale; diamonds are 10, glass is 6.5, and iron is 4.5. That’s the key to the whole thing, and why it’s surprisingly hard to break a window with a hammer and surprisingly easy to break it with a small, light little shard of innocent white spark plug ceramic.

 

And so, in conclusion, ninja rocks are interesting, and the next time you see a freaky little crackhead running around Philadelphia with a red Phillies hat and a bunch of broken little ceramic shards, run him over once for me.

That's cool.

 

I hate crackheads too, unless they're the harmless type who will give you crazy hookups on stolen shit. That is not your red Phillies hat.

I known about this since I was in the 6th grade

We called them magic rocks tho, take the ceramic ring and tie it on some fishing line

It's really not as hard as people think

 

As long as you have enough brains to understand the concept of a tumbler system and a steady hand you are good to go

 

 

I would think anyone with decent can controll could pick it up fine, you just apply tension and manually push the pins up into place. It takes a couple hours of practice... But really it's easier and faster to just prybar a lock open...

you gotta put the ceramic at the end of a necklace...that way you can re-use it over and over and it's also a petty thug fashion statement

I used to use spark plugs as scribes...if you need to get into a car, what's wrong with a brick wrapped in a t-shirt?

Or if there is no deadbolt just take a big pair of channel lock pliers, grab the doorknob with them and twist hard, strip it out.
