What is the resqme® tool?
The resqme® tool is a unique portable safety device that can be attached to your keychain. This innovative 2-in-1 rescue tool is a window breaker and seatbelt cutter that allows you to get out of your car in an emergency.
How does it work?
The resqme® tool attaches to your keychain with a detachable clip. In the event of an emergency, pull the resqme® tool away from the clip to reveal the blade. If the seatbelt is jammed, cut the belt by hooking the blade over and slicing it across. To break the window, press the black head of the tool against the corner of the window and it will release the spring-loaded spike and shatter the glass. The resqme® tool does not work on car windshields. It is effective only against tempered glass commonly used in side windows.
Does the resqme® tool work on all car windows?
The resqme® tool is effective only against clear and tinted tempered glass. Tempered glass is commonly used in rear and side car windows. The resqme® tool does NOT work on laminated glass. Laminated windows which are typically used for windshields can also be found on some car models. To check to see what your side windows are made of, locate the sticker on your side windows to see if it is designated as “Tempered” glass. If you are unable to locate the sticker or the information is not understandable, please call your car manufacturer. You can find a list of some vehicles equipped with laminated windows in the US at: http://www.epgaa.com/applications/index.asp. This list is not comprehensive so we recommend contacting your car manufacturer directly.
Is the resqme® reusable?
Yes. The spring-loaded spike resets automatically and can be used multiple times. The blade is very durable and can easily perform multiple seat belt cuts.
How can I test the resqme®?
If you’re going to test the window breaker on a car glass window, be sure to wear safety gloves and goggles. Alternatively, you can test the window breaker on a hard surface like a notepad or a piece of wood. When the spring-loaded spike is released, you will hear a “click.” After you lift up the tool again, another spring resets the spike so you can use it again. You will see a small dent where the tip of the spike met the testing surface. The seatbelt cutter blade is very sharp and will easily cut through seatbelts. Hold the seatbelt tape taut and pull the tool toward you, cutting it diagonally.
When I look inside the tool where the spring-loaded spike is located, it seems the spike is misaligned. Is that normal?
The resqme® tool is designed this way. When not in use, the spike is not aligned with the hole. When you push the head of the resqme tool against a window or hard surface to activate the window breaker, an internal plastic shoulder centers the spike and the spring propels it forward and through the hole.
Has the resqme® tool been tested?
The resqme® has been tested under water and on land by numerous public safety organizations worldwide. The Florida Keys Community College Marine Public Safety Program tested it rigorously underwater.
Will the spike accidentally release?
The resqme® tool will not accidentally deploy and cannot be triggered while you carry it on your keychain, pocket, or bag. In order to release the spring-loaded spike, 12 pounds of force needs to be intentionally applied to the tool. Do not press the head of the tool against your fingers to test it. With enough force, the spike will release and likely cause physical injury.
Can I take the resqme® on the airplane in my carry-on?
The TSA has not evaluated the resqme® tool nor listed it on the forbidden items list. Due to its size and design, it does not show up in X-rays. However, considering it contains a blade, we recommend you pack the resqme® tool in your checked luggage to avoid the risk of confiscation.
How do I know the type of glass used in my car?
Most sunroofs and rear windows are tempered. To figure out what kind of glass is in the side window of your car, you can look in the bottom corner. There may be a label that says “tempered” or “laminated.” If not, roll down the window and look at it from a bird’s-eye view. If it’s smooth and looks like one piece, it’s tempered. If it looks like a sandwich with a ridge, it’s laminated.
