Was in a very bad car accident on freeway in Feb 09. I had all front end damage and airbags went off the whole shabang. Very frightening. My car traveled across all lanes of the freeway and slammed into the brick wall on right shoulder. I was so shaken up but my adrenaline was pumping, smoke was everywhere in the car and I was afraid it was going to catch on fire, I tried to open my door but couldn't, I had been carrying the Swiss-tech BodyGard 5 in 1 on me for about a year. Sort of bulky on my set of car keys and I thought, when am I ever going to use this? I paid the $15 for it and at that moment when I reached for it (the keys were still in ignition)I was praying it would work. I pressed it up against the glass of the drivers side and POW the glass exploded and broke a gigantic hole. I cleared the rest away with my hand and climbed out the driver's window. I can attest to say that this product worked and I am so happy I had it on me and am happy to be alive.

I just bought two of these one for myself and one for my wife. I have a friend who works in a junk yard and agreed to let me try them out, the first one I used shoved the rod through the plastic on the inside and the second popped out but did not have the power to break the glass. PLEASE do not count on this to save your life if you do buy one try it out several times before you trust it. The light would be handy though if you turned on the light it might help the rescue divers find your body!

This came as part of a set of multiple items from Swiss-Tech. I tested the glass breaker, multiple times from various locations, and it didn't so much as scratch the glass. The siren can be loud, but it's also very easily stifled in the manner you are holding it. Haven't tested the seatbelt cutter, but I'm guessing my knives are just as well suited. It's way to bulky to be on my key chain.

It fell apart all the time. The blade wasn't sharp enough to cut a seat belt and the window breaker didn't break a thing. The alarm was barely loud. This eventall fell off my key chain due to it slides out.

I have this on my key chain and doing construction work I guess to much dust got in it. So the alarm started to go off randomly so I had to take the battery out. Now that those features don't even work anymore its just bulkier than it should be. I have not used the seat belt cutter or the spring-loaded point yet. I recommend getting the ResQMe version even though I have not used it, it does the same thing as mine now.

Not very well made; probably will not be at hand should you ever need it, unless you carry it on your keychain; it's really too big & bulky to carry on your car's keychain.
I bought one, tried it out as best I could, and eventually just rejected it to my junk drawn.

I have tested this out as much as possible without damaging my car.
- The glass breaker does provide real force, with no exertion on my part (it put a good sized ding into wood).
- The blade is as sharp as a new pair of scissors. (Having fiddled with seat belt strap fabric in the past, I can tell you that the fabric is designed to be cut resistant, but not cut proof. Starting a cut takes a bit of a sawing motion with scissors, and I'd expect the same here.)
- The lights are what I expect from a basic keychain light. They're bright enough to help you search for something you dropped, check under the hood, or find your jumper cables. If you use it as an emergency beacon, passing cars would be able to see it if they got close, and weren't inattentive. Obviously, if you have road flares or a heavy duty flashlight, you'd use those, but not everyone does.
- The size is suitable for a pocket, but better for the center console, glove box, etc. (Anywhere within easy reach of driver and passenger.) Double sided velcro could mount it elsewhere if you prefer. You could keep it on a keychain, but it would be bulky.
- It's light, I wouldn't mind carrying it.
I would buy this again.

I have this item in my car... Has a good sturdy build, cuts seatbelt breaks glass and also for the price gives you a bit more than other items alike... has a decent led light and a beacon for emergency and a very loud high pitch alarm... A tool you must own in your car!
