Use of Emergency Car Window Hammer with Seat Belt Cutter
Car accidents happen every day. With the advances in auto safety, your odds of survival are even greater. But with that safety, comes the even greater opportunity to become trapped in your own vehicle. Crumple zones in cars now mean that almost any crash can trap you behind jammed doors. Add the risk of the battery becoming damaged in the accident and disabling your electrical system. Now your door locks won’t open and the car windows won’t roll down. Don’t become the victim.
As a retired professional firefighter for over 33 years of experience, I have responded to my fair share of auto accidents. Over those years I have seen the quality of auto safety improve. People are surviving car accidents today that would have been fatal years ago. The reason is two-fold, car design and driver safety. Most drivers today wear seat belts and enjoy the safety benefit of airbags. Cars today are built with crumple zones which cause the car to collapse in sections to absorb the energy before it is transferred into the passenger cabin. Because of this design, almost all frontal impacts lead to the vehicles doors becoming jammed.
This is where a Car Window Breaker comes in. With car doors jammed and/or possibly locked because the battery in the vehicle has been damaged, leaving you with no power to open the door locks or windows. You are stuck! Now, add in the fact the airbags have deployed and left you choking on smoke and dust, with no relief in sight. Not to mention the risk of fire. You are now a true victim of your circumstances. This simple rescue tool can overcome all those problems by getting you out quickly.
When shopping for a Window Breaker make sure it comes with a built-in seat belt cutter. So why would you need a seat belt cutter? In case you have rolled the vehicle during the accident and the belts become loaded with the victims weight, making it very difficult to release. Another risky situation could involve a child’s car seat. No struggle here though, just slice the belt and everyone is free.
So now that you are free from the seat belts, you still have to get by the rolled up windows, damaged battery and door locks to truly be free. That’s where the tempered steel tip on the Car Window Hammer comes in. You see, you just can’t kick or punch through tempered glass. It is designed not to shatter and break. But, your tempered glass is no match for tempered steel. You do not need great strength or any skill. Just strike the glass and you are free.
Could this tool save lives in other situations? Absolutely. Another example would be if the vehicle went underwater. Remember, in this situation make sure you are free in the cab and ready to swim to the surface before you break the glass with your Emergency Window Breaker. Once you strike the glass, the water will rush in and fill the cab. Now, as hard as it may be to wait, wait until the water equalizes in the cab so you can easily swim out.
Remember to store your Emergency Car Window Hammer in the front seat near the driver so you have easy and immediate access to this lifesaving tool.
