Product Description

Color: Orange

LifeHammer's Original Emergency Hammer is a high-quality car escape tool, designed to help prevent automotive entrapment after an accident. Should power locks become disabled or a safety belt jam after an accident, the double-sided steel hammer heads allow the vehicle occupant to shatter side and rear windows, while a safely concealed razor-sharp blade cuts easily through safety belts. This product includes a mounting bracket (made of tough ABS plastic) for convenient installation, a polypropylene grip and handle, and a florescent pin which glows in the dark for easy retrieval. Made in Holland.

It happened at the end of our road several years ago. A mother and her child died in a car trapped in flood waters. So when our children started driving we have gotten them each a LifeHammer.

Yes, it's ugly and yes I figured they would all complain. But you know. They all have carried their hammers, and if they don't feel safer, at least I feel they are safer.

The LifeHammer is smaller than some making it easier to mount. The only complaint I have is that it fits very tightly into the holder. This certainly keeps it from bouncing out while driving but in a panic situation I would think it might be better if it came loose easier. I contacted LifeHammer to tell them of my concerns, and they told me that by fitting it tightly it forces the user to take a firm grasp on it, making it less likely they will drop it in a panic situation. That makes sense I guess.

In any case even a 5 year old can remove the hammer from the holder so I guess it is OK.

It is easy to see, and has two heads so it doesn't matter which way you hold it. Either side will shatter a window without much effort. We tried it on a junk car, and the door glass broke easily with 1 solid whack. The seat-belt knife at the end of the handle also works, though not as easily as the hammer. It took a little work to cut a seat belt, but it did work.

This is a good solid product that works exactly as designed. Well worth the price. Hopefully you'll never have to use it.

I recently took a vehicle extrication class. The window punch that was on the extrication truck would not work. I remembered having this. It broke countless windows with just one hit to the corner. (you always want to hit the corner of the windows)The plastic handle did get a little cut up but will still go through more windows. The seatbelt cutter only made It through 1 seatbelt, and now it has alot of seatbelt fibers on the blade.
I would advise when mounting this in your vehicle that you mount it by your middle dome light, in case the driver is knocked out, someone else can still get it. (-:

Earlier today I drove into about 8 feet of water and the car was going under. I had a LifeHammer in my car and was able to take out the driver's side window with ease and swim to safety. I cannot recommend this enough.

I pray that you never have to use this device (I never thought I would have to use it either) but this is an absolute essential for anybody who drives a car. Stop reading the reviews and just buy the thing.

The tool delivers on all of its functional promises - effective glass hammer, belt cutter and it's at the ready! I would suggest buying some adhesive velcro or some double-stick tape to mount it to the underside of your automobile dashboard. Mount it under the steering wheel, and you'll always know where to find it.

Car side windows are tough and almost impossible to break without a tool. This tool has pointed heads on the hammer which will cause the tempered glass in side windows (NOT the windshield) to shatter when hit with some force. As in all emergencies the key thing is to calm youself so you can think clearly. Mount this tool where you can easily reach it and then practice locating it and removing it from the mounting bracket with your eyes closed. With this tool you can fairly easily break the window and cut your seat belt if needed so you can exit the vehicle, hopefully before it sinks, if you have driven into flood water. You can also use it to rescue yourself or someone else trapped in a vehicle as a result of an accident that has jambed the doors where they won't open. The Today Show on NBC just recently had a segment on escaping a sinking vehicle and showed this tool in use.

OK, so I buy 2 of these for my car and my husband's. He scoffs at it saying, "When am I ever going to use this??" Well, he hasn't needed to but I did!
Driving home to Wisconsin from Rhode Island with a friend and my 11 year old son. We're in Cleveland, on the highway in the middle of the night and my son in the back seat says, "Mom, my seat belt is stuck." Of course, I ask all the questions, "What are you talking about?" and just a lot of "What?'s" Simple right? Just unbuckle it and fix it.
After failing to solve the problem while driving and starting to hear some panic in my son's voice, I reluctantly pull off to the side of the highway. Just on a side note, this wasn't a part of the highway where there were exits for food or gas stations. In fact, the only exits were one's that I absolutely did not want to get off at fearing I would never get back on (no offense to Cleveland of course, we all have those stretches of highway.)
I get out of the car and open my son's door to find that the problem which I expected to be easily solved, was not solveable. Somehow while he was sleeping, he twisted and turned and double wrapped the seatbelt around him. And it gets worse. Because he had spent 15-20 minutes trying to get himself out and had already unbuckled the belt, he kept making the belt tighter and tighter, to the point where not only was there no belt room to get any slack back, he started having trouble breathing because it was wrapped around his lower stomach so tight I could not get my fingers underneath. I don't know if any of you can picture this because my husband could not when I explained it to him.
It dawns on me that I have this tool in my glovey, and I think it has a seat belt cutter on it. Do I actually have to use this?
