I bought this product for my wife and one for my daughter. In 2010, she had a car accident and had to use the seat belt cutter and the glass inpact hammer after she went off a bridge and into the water.......I believe it helped save her life.

I got a couple of these a coupld weeks back after watching a Mythbusters episode about submerged cars. For my wife the unit is small and easily added to here key ring. I hung mine from the seatbelt in my car. I had some tempered glass laying around my garage, so I gave it a quick try. It worked as expected. With just a little bit of pressure the glass was punctured and immediately shattered.

I highly recommend this device, especially give its low price.

After reading the other comsumers horrifying review I called the company who manufactures the ResQme keychain. I am not sure how the other consumer "tested" his/her keychains but the person I talked to said it has to be tested "on" someTHING. You can not just push the botton and have it "spring" into thin air. He recommended a notebook so the device's blade would not dull. He said you can even use this device more than once. Fire fighters and Police Officers, Rescue Personnel do use this or the Life Hammer. He said the disadvantage of the Life Hammer is that if you are submerged under water you are not able to swing the Life Hammer, where with the ResQme keychain it is spring loaded.
After a 22 year old woman just died from sliding off a highway during a Minnesota blizzard into a ice cold lake,(12-8-09) I am getting ReQme keychains for all my family members for Christmas gifts! I would rather take the chance of it not working than my family members not have it at all. I do have faith that it WILL work.
Any questions please call the Life Hammer and ResQme keychains manufactuer. Their phone number can be found online.

As a firefighter, I bought this last week to put on my MVA carabiner to use at wrecks. Low and behold, last night we had a rollover MVA with the passenger being suspended in the car by her seatbelt. With all of her weight on the belt, it was impossible to unlock it using the traditional means.

Once we stabilized the car and were starting extrication, I crawled inside and started patient care. Luckily, she was conscious and had only minor injuries. While the top of the car was being removed, I was going to attempt to free her to the ground (which was the drivers side of the car) so she would be as comfortable as you can be while having spreaders/cutters and a sawzall 2 feet from your head. I grabbed my carabiner off of my turnouts and fumbled around under the blanket with my flashlight looking for my new resqme. It wasn't there. The key-ring was still on my biner, but no tool to be found.....

The reason for this was discovered this morning when I got off shift, went searching, and found the tool in the engine bay behind the rig. The plastic piece had broken off at the key-ring and had been sitting there for X amount of time.

I shouldn't be bitter, I've seen these in action, and they do work well. Just be careful how you stage them with other gear, as they aren't the most durable tool you can use.

I've been previously employed as a Firefighter/ Medic and a Police officer. In the past I have used window punches to gain access to patients entrapped within vehicles. I never found them too convenient outside of work until I became a cop. I was driving home one day and observed a car flipped over and engulfed in flames on the side of the interstate in northern Virginia. I was able to stop, kick out the rear window, and pull the driver to safety. Ever since then I sought for an alternative and I located Resqme. I liked the idea that I could attach it to my keys and always have quick access.

More recently I was transporting a prisoner when I observed a wrecked car with smoke pouring from the engine in south Texas. I slowed to notice the driver was knocked out and face down on the steering wheel. Upon exiting my vehicle I forgot the resqme device and attempted to smash the window unsuccessfully with a knife. I returned to my vehicle and retrieved the resqme. To my dismay, the device malfunctioned and failed to break the window. I'm unsure if I have a faulty device but I alerted the company. They never responded to my email but I'm no longer fully comfortable with the product and will most likely return to the traditional window punch.

I was a career FF in a previous life and this is perfect for breaking side window glass and cutting seat belts. I bought this for overseas travel and for the car. It is small, lightweight, and sturdy. The black "plug" for the key ring that is in front of the razor blade does take some pull to remove, but after taking if off a few times it has loosened up, but not the the point where it will fall off. It still needs a good tug.

The seat belt slides between the prongs for cutting. There is a key ring included so you can add it to your car keys.

The spring loaded plunger works too. I tested it on a piece of scrap lumber. Just press down and ...POP! The metal pin inside pops out and it left a good dent in the wood. It should have no problems breaking the side window glass in a vehicle. Be sure to place the pin in a corner near the top of the window. When the glass breaks, it won't cut you when it lands on your hand or arm. You can also use the pin on the front or rear windshield, but it won't shatter the glass like the side window, but you can put spider web cracks in the glass. This makes it easier to kick or push something through the windshield like an umbrella or windshield scraper.

The pin will work underwater too. You don't have to swing this to break the glass. Just press it against the window and keep pressing, it will pop. I hope it makes it through TSA, I don't see why it shouldn't. I plan on buying more for family as gifts.

Update 01/31/2013: Easily made it through airport security in four countries, in addition to the TSA in the USA.
