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.
