Resqme Keychain Car Escape Tool
SKU #: Resqme-Tool
The Resqme Tool: A Must-Have for All Motorists
The resqme tool was designed in 2003 after the introduction of the LifeHammer, an emergency escape tool. After identifying a need for a portable and compact version, the resqme tool was developed and is now proudly manufactured in the United States and distributed worldwide.
The resqme tool is a window-breaker and seat-belt-cutter--an emergency tool idea for the safety of any driver. In the event of an emergency and possible vehicle entrapment, the resqme tool holds a sharp blade to cut a jammed seatbelt and a spring-loaded spike to shatter the car window.
Originally designed for emergency personnel, the resqme tool is an ideal tool for any driver. It is small, lightweight, and still powerful. You can carry it on your keys so it is always within reach.
Your family will be prepared for the unexpected with the resqme tool "when seconds count…"

Hope to never use it
I purchased one to try out during our annual vehicle extrication training to see how well it worked and how difficult they were to handle. It works great, easily manipulated, fast to deploy and rugged design. I was so impressed with this little tool, I bought one each for my wife and daughters cars, with the optional visor mount. I hope never to have to have them used by them, but have comfort they are in the cars.
ProsSmall Light weight Easy to use Quickly deployable Work better than expected

Emergency Glass Break Tool
Breaks auto side glass the first time every time with very little effort. Unlike hammers there is very little chance of over swing and injuring a hand on the glass as it breaks. Keep in on your key chain or hang it on your rear view mirror so that even when in an overturned car you can reach it. Seat belt cutter is a bit hard to use but is better than not having one.
ProsEffective, convenient size and affordable.
ConsSeat belt cutter works but is a bit hard to use.

I've taken a training course at Sig where I used this little powerhouse on an abandoned vehicle. The blade cuts a seatbelt like butter (on a 45 degree angle to the belt edge), the glass breaker starts a spider crack in the lower part of window and a simple elbow or gloved hand shatters it! Will save your life in a light weight key chain package...big fan!

Resqme Car Escape Tool
I bought one for every member of my immediate family. I'm a first responder and know of the need for a tool like this. The compact size keeps it on the owners keychain rather than under the seat or in the trunk where the hammers and bigger tools end up. Center punches are great IF you can find it. The Resqme Tool is a solution these issues.
ProsCompact, Easy to Use

Durable Quality Gloves
I have used mechanix gloves for the last 5 years landscaping. And normally pay between $14.99 and $19.99 for a single pair. This pack is 2 pair for $19.99, now $16.99 I believe and I couldn't be happier. They are high quality, durable, and long lasting gloves for the professional. Highly recommend to anyone for work or fun.

Looks like it would work
Haven't tried using it yet, but it's in the car. It's smaller than it looks, about 2.5" x 1.2". There's a zip tie to attach the keychain loop to something else (in my case, the gear shift), so when you yank on it the cover comes off and you can use it. My only concern with it is the force needed to expose the window punch. The spring is stiff, and I would think if you were elderly it might give you some trouble, or if you're worried that pushing so hard you're going to shove your whole arm through the window and get cut up and so you don't push hard enough. It might be better if, when the protective sheath comes off, it exposes the punch as well so you can tap it against the glass just like other rescue hammers, and there's then less risk of injury from the glass.

You might want to actually use your tool on a window in a submerged vehicle - the one thing none of you "toolers" will show. Hmmm - wonder why?
I’m sorry I’m not sure if I understand your question. They manufacturer’s video does show them breaking glass with it however if you want to see that on a submerged vehicle I’m not sure anyone that anyone has done that due to the clean-up/pollution issues.

I see that this has a blade (obviously). Is this something that will need to be checked, if flying?
The TSA has not evaluated the resqme tool nor listed it on the forbidden items list. Due to its size and design, it does not show up in X-rays. However, considering it contains a blade, we recommend you pack the resqme tool in your checked luggage to avoid the risk of confiscation.

It will show up on X-ray machines and depending on the facility or your credentials you may need to leave it in the car. LEO/ fire only will allow you to retain it in the courthouse I work at, not security guards or citizen with an excuse. TSA no clue but not welcome everywhere even when I know what it is and what it is used for, orders just don't allow it outside of very strict situations.
