Safety First

It’s the stuff of nightmares -- getting trapped in a car with jammed seat belts and inoperable windows, or being trapped outside a car with a child stuck inside. No one likes to dwell on the scary scenarios that could occur in a car accident, but it’s important to be prepared for emergencies. When every second counts, the portable ResQMe and LifeHammer could aid your escape.

Both tools are designed to help if someone is trapped in a vehicle. The hammer tips can break window glass (not windshields), and built-in blades can cut jammed seat belts. Laurent Colasse, who founded nov8 after learning how emergency hammers can reduce accident fatalities and injuries, says these car-escape tools are engineered to work even if a car is submerged in water.

The LifeHammer has two hardened steel points and a recessed blade, and it comes with brackets for optional mounting inside a vehicle. ResQMe has a spring-loaded spike that can break window glass and a recessed blade, and it comes with a keychain ring so you can keep it handy. If you’re in a jam, a little protection can go a long way.
