The operation of the device is easy and PDF directions are available on the company website. The concept is this:

1. Once the blade cover is attached - the part with the key ring attachment - it is hard to remove. It needs to be or the tool would fall off of the key ring. The product is shipped with the cover off so you can see how the device functions. Once you snap the cover on, little plactic tabs keep it from coming off easily without using a mini screw driver to lift it over the tabs.

2. When you get in a jam, you yank the device off of your key ring. The effort required to do this would be minimal - a light tug reveals how the cover begins to flex and would readily come off when needed. The plactic blade cover stays on your key ring and what you have in your hand is an exposed blade to cut the seat belt, a LED flashlight, and a spring loaded punch tool ready to press against the window.

Its that simple. If your looking for just a fancy key ring flashlight, there are better choices. If you want a key ring tool to escape a vehicle, this is perfect. This is a use it once in a emergency and then get a new one type of device. I don't know how well the little cover will fair when I yank the tool free and I don't know how sharp the blade would be after cutting a belt. But if I am ever forced to find out - I really won't care.

On a side note, the spring loaded punch is metal and clearly visible in the device. Also, since it is a blunt point, it is designed to deliver its shock to a very small spot. In short, a lot of energy directed at a small point on the glass will shatter or crack it enough to be pushed out.

This is a potential life saver. Like any rescue device, you never want to need it. But the window breaker and seat belt cutter could save your life or a loved one. If your car is sinking, you can't open the windows or doors sometimes. Being able to break the windows easily in an emergency is critical. Or what if you come to an accident and the driver is unresponsive and the car is catching on fire. You can use it to break their window, cut their seatbelt, and pull them out. The other tools aren't as useful. The whistle isn't the loudest in the world and the light is nice in a pinch. But I didn't buy the Houdini for them so they are just bonus for me. I bought 4 of them (thanks woot!) and I carry one, gave one to my girlfriend, and keep a spare in each of our cars.

For the people who doubt that this will actually work i encourage you to do your research. A simple Youtube search brought this up [...] . As you can see all it does is put a ton of little cracks through the entire window (which does not take very much force) and then you can easily break it.

There are a lot of similar tools such as this one and while they may seem light cheap i guarantee they will break glass, if you don't believe me go try it on your car ;-). However on a serious note most junk yards will allow you to test this on a car.

Yes built in features like a whistle or a light on some of these tools might not be high quality but i would be more concerned about it being able to cut a seat belt or break glass.

All in all this product is comparable to many out there and will get the job done.

Attached to both sets of keys, feel a whole lot safer with it. No bigger than a large key chain.
