Mindful Mondays – Emergency Escape Tool

By on April 21, 2014

Seat Belt Cutter

Do you know what this tool is?  It is a seat belt cutter/window breaker, and it could help save your life (or someone else’s!)  in case of an emergency in your vehicle.  I keep mine in my center console.

But the more important question…Do you know what type of glass your car windows are?  My front windows (windshield/driver front/passenger front) are laminated glass and the rest of the windows are tempered.  It says right on my windows (see pictures).

Tempered GlassLaminated Glass

So why do you need to know this?  Because a window breaking tool will NOT shatter laminated glass.  It cracks it but it takes a lot of effort and multiple hits before any damage is done.  Take a look at this video from NBC in Dallas that will show you exactly what happens.  Tempered glass, on the other hand, will shatter.  This is very important to remember. If you are driving you may have to crawl to the back windows to make a quicker escape.

Below are the prices of the seat belt cutters/window breakers and they are VERY inexpensive!  A small price to pay for peace of mind and preparedness.  You will want to have one in every car.
