Product Description

Amazon.com

Inspired by LifeHammer, the acclaimed automotive escape tool, ResQMe is a revolutionary handheld rescue tool that provides drivers and passengers with the same level of confidence and results as its larger cousin in the event of a life-threatening entrapment incident in your vehicle. Ultra small, yet designed to provide the instant and easy ability to cut through jammed seat belts and shatter side windows when the need arises, it is the inexpensive, portable power that every car should have onboard in the event of an emergency.

The Threat of Entrapment
Entrapment, the inability to escape a vehicle in the event of an emergency, is a very real threat to motorists. According to the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics last publication, there are over 42,000 crash fatalities each year. That is almost 1 death every 12 minutes. Of these, an estimated 500 people died while trapped inside their vehicles. Along with water related incidents, a potential factor in this disturbing number of emergencies is the growing prevalence of power windows that can become jammed due to submersion or fire. As a result of these facts the demand for high-performance automobile safety equipment is on the rise, with ResQMe fast becoming the most convenient option in vehicles all across North America. With ResQMe drivers can be confident that they will be able to cut through safety belts and smash car windows, when every second counts.

How Does it Work?
At just a hair over 3-inches in length and .6 ounces, ResQMe easily fits on to your keychain with a detachable clip. This small size also allows it to be stored in any number of places convenient to the driver, including a hanging position directly on the the steering or shifting columns, or in the extra key compartment under the dash. In the event of an entrapment pull the clip away from the product to reveal the cutter (blade). Hook this over a jammed seat belt and pull to free yourself. To activate the window breaker, simply push the black head against a side window until the concealed spring-loaded spike releases and shatters the window. Shattering a side window with ResQMe takes as little as 12 lb of pressure, meaning that virtually anyone can use it. And the fact that the blade can stand up to several uses and that the spike is easily loaded back into the ready position means that you will always be ready if you are unfortunate enough to be faced with another emergency incident.

Features:

  • Spring-loaded head effortlessly smashes the vehicle's side windows with only 12 lb Of force.
  • Razor sharp blade slices through jammed seat belts and is safely surrounded by the plastic casing.
  • ResQMe's included clip detaches from the body, allowing the user to quickly access the blade.
  • Clip doubles as a device to hang ResQMe from a keychain or other accessible area.
  • Originally offered exclusively to fire, paramedic and police organizations, but is now available to the public.
  • Contains an imprintable area suitable for personalization with user or company name.

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.

I've always read that in order for equipment to save you, it has to be with you. The ResQMe Mini is pretty small - about 3 inches long with the keyring/protector inserted and 1 1/4" wide and 5/8" tall.

It has a plastic insert blade guard which "locks" into place to protect the razor blade intended to cut through a stuck seat belt (or potentially cut through clothes or shoes that are caught if the fabric is thin enough). I have to admit that I'm disappointed in this design to some degree. While I understand the necessity, I think that a dedicated lanyard or keyring hole in the body casing would have proven stronger and less likely to fail. It's not that the insert is easy to fall out, it's just that it can. The razor is firmly seated and double edged, so it's very sharp.

The spring loaded glass breaker uses a hardened steel pin which is hidden behind a plastic cowl. This cowl is difficult to depress, but it charges the spring for the pin to release with enough pressure to break the side window of your car. The spike is self-resetting and may be used many times. The manufacturer, states that it takes 12lbs (5kg) of force to fire. The tool will not break windshields or laminated glass. Some auto side windows are laminated! So check your vehicle model or call your dealer as this may not work in your particular car (though it's not common yet, many cars are getting safety upgrades now). It should break most rear windows too.

While the Mini Escape tool is small enough to fit in a pocket, it could be bulky on a keychain. I like to keep my accessories to a bare minimum, so I'd prefer it in a smaller formfactor. I've already noted the problem with the keyring mounting position. The quality of the plastic is very good and the blade hook is reinforced well.

While I haven't had to use in an emergency, I did test this product out on an old car door/window assembly and it worked quickly and easily. Just press it against the window (it takes a little bit of pressure) and it instantly crumbles to pieces. Even above water the glass didn't explode, it simply crumbled away. In water I would guess it would just float safely away but broken glass would be the least of your worries if you were in that situation.

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 bought four of these after an unfortunate auto/drowning incident near my house. I am a trained medic, and thought these would be a good idea for the family. Until I tested it on a 1996 Honda door window. TOTAL FAIL!!! It did nothing to the window. I emailed ResQQMe. They sent me some bs email about how they would love to hear my story. Until I told them that their product didn't work. then, they never emailed me again. No offer to fix, replace or refund. As a medic, i would suggest getting a spring loaded center punch and a good pocket knife; keep both in the glove box.

Although I have a bunch of things on my keychains, I've decided to start carrying this. People make fun of me, but that one time you need such a tool, whether inside your vehicle or someone else's, this could save lives. The punch is powerful and, unlike a standard metal punch that needs your force to break glass, this spring-loaded one is sure to work. I tested it, but not on glass, and it springs powerfully.

The great sleeve/cover for the blade works well. It doesn't slip off easily (in case it's in your pocket, etc.), but with a little effort, it pops off as needed.

Just wish I was able to get a single one in the bright yellow color (which comes in 2 packs).
