Every person, car, truck, vehicle and keyring should be sporting one of these bad boys. For around £10, you can save your own life, and those of your loved ones multiple times over.
It lives on my car keys and never gets in the way. It consists of, and splits into, two segments. The main ResQme tool, and the blade guard. The blade guard is the thin black part (easily seen in the pictures of the brighter coloured tools) that you attach to your keyring.
To use, simply grab the ResQme tool and pull. The blade guard will remain attached to the keyring, allowing the blade to be used. It is designed to cut seatbelts in a safe manner. I physically can't cut my finger with it, the gap is too small. It is very sharp. I have used it to cut paper and envelopes etc, and I imagine in an emergency it could be used to cut clothing.
The other main feature is the window breaker. Push it against one of your cars side windows with very little force, and the spike will spring out and smash it. The spike is self retracting, and can be used multiple times. There are many videos online of it being used successfully on car windows.
Compared to many of its rivals, it's smaller, it's cheaper, it's better looking and it comes in different colours! It also makes a great gift for friends and family who drive, trust me.
Bottom line, if you don't yet own a safety tool for your car, get one. I would strongly recommend this one. But seriously, irrelevant of which one you get, just get one, they save lives.
