When the car doors jammed and/or possibly become locked because the battery in the vehicle has been damaged, leaving you with no power to open the door locks or windows. You are stuck! Now, add in the fact that the airbags have deployed and left you choking on smoke and dust, with no relief in sight. Not to mention the risk of fire. You are now a true victim of your circumstances. This simple rescue tool can overcome all those problems by getting you out quickly.
When shopping for a Window Breaker make sure it comes with a built-in seat belt cutter. In case you have rolled the vehicle during the accident and the belts become loaded with the victims weight, making it very difficult to release. Another risky situation could involve a child’s car seat. No struggle here though, just slice the belt and everyone is free.
Could this tool save lives in other situations? Absolutely. Another example would be if the vehicle went underwater. Remember, in this situation make sure you are free in the cab and ready to swim to the surface before you break the glass with your Car Window Breaker. Once you strike the glass, the water will rush in and fill the cab. Now, as hard as it may be to wait, you can’t swim against the water rushing in (you could drown). Wait until the water equalizes in the cab so you can easily swim out.
Remember to store your Car Window Breaker in the front seat near the driver so you have easy and immediate access to this life saving tool.
