Only breaks tempered glass

When is comes to vehicle manufacturing, there are two main types of glass utilized; laminated and tempered glass. Tempered glass fractures into small chunks in order to prevent injury caused by sharp edges. Laminated glass consists of two or more panes of glass that are fused together by a sheet of plastic, making it harder to break in order to prevent ejections in an accident. The device will work on tempered glass only and not laminated glass. It is important to research the type of glass used in each of the windows of your vehicle(s) in order to equip yourself with the proper protocol to escape in the event of an emergency.

Beware of fake resqme® copies

The original resqme® tool is made in the USA and the tool is patented, trademarked and copyrighted. Unfortunately, there are counterfeit copies of our tool available online, and we are working hard on having all counterfeit listings removed. Our number one priority is the safety of our customers so we want to spread awareness about these fake tools because they will most likely not work during an emergency. If you come across a resqme® tool and wonder if it is real or fake, please feel free to email us pictures and information at and we will be happy to confirm if it is the original tool.

    I have a missing item from my order and I can’t seem to get any help. I’ve tried email and phone and no one answers me or returns my call about my missing item. Horrible customer service

    Love the tool but they came green instead of the white I ordered

    Honestly, it looks like plastic junk but it breaks a car window with just pressing against an edge of the glass like it was hit with a sledge hammer. Very light weight. Also cuts seatbelt if you are upside down and can’t get it to release because your body weight is pressing against the lock. If you can’t afford $9.00 to save your life, find a used spark plug to break car windows.

    I bought these for peace of mind and gave to all family members. It’s important to know that they can get out of their vehicles if they become trapped. Everyone should use these and think ahead. No one wants to think the worst can happen but if it does be prepared.

    It appears the best way to order the Resqme product is directly from the company. It was just as cheap and faster than Amazon.

    So far, I haven’t needed to use this (I just received it) and I suspect that if I’m lucky, I won’t have to!!! However, it’s a relief to know that I have some practical options if I’m trapped in a car! (And, by the way, my name is Theo Tucker, but I’m a woman, so PLEASE don’t send mail to “Mr. Theo Tucker!” Happens every day and it’s getting really old!!!!)

    Good. Good speed, good product. No problems. Definitely would recommend, I bought two of the keychain classic glass breakers and seatbelt cutters. I bought two because shipping one seemed dumb. Gave one to my roommate. Cuz like… yeah he’s not my mom or anything, but I don’t want him to drown in a lake.

    Anyway. They seem to work well. I hope I never have to use it to save my life because it would be nice to not be in the life threatening situation in the first place. Don’t text and drive. Definitely don’t drink and drive you buzz nugget.

  54. James Howard

    Awesome 👏🏾. Ariel Ray was amazing to work with.

  55. Carol Marshall

    Good tool to have. Thanks

  56. Laura F.

    We really like the ResQMe device. Made in USA too. Awesome!

  57. Anthony Wilson

    I have saved many people over my career as a conservation officer, including several water rescues. I think the device is so small, it will be hard to hold in a stressful situation.

  58. Kenneth Timlin

    Great gadget at a great price! I have 3.

    I love the resqme tool so much!! As a Eagle Scout being prepared is my #1 goal. Having a small, light tool like the resqme tool helps me achieve that goal. I’m also a police officer and being able to have a tool that doesn’t take up a lot of space on my duty belt is paramount. I keep my tool on my key ring holder and if I ever need to save someone or myself I know I have the tool vital to saving lives. The compact size and various mounting abilities makes this tool my number one everyday carry tool.

  61. Thomas R.

    tracking was hard due to a snow storm & USPS.

  62. NC Smith

    Reasonably fast shipping packed well. Looks nice but I haven’t had an occasion that necessitated cutting my seat belt in I/2 nor do I wish to break my car window, or anyone else’s either. So I can’t comment on how well it may work. Stay tuned
