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. Resqme is a registered trademark licensed to resqme, Inc. Unfortunately, there are counterfeit copies of our tool available online, and we are working hard on having all counterfeit listings removed.

    Won’t really know about the product quality and function until I have to use it. And I hope to never need it. As for the shipping experience, I give a solid 5 stars.

    Great tool for emergencies!

    The YouTube vids REALLY brought home how important this tool is. I’m a believer, and am equipping friends and family with same. Thanks!

    A must for every car.

  17. Elmer A Davis III

    I ordered a three pack but only got one instruction card. Since I planned to give each of my sisters one, it would have been nice to have three instruction cards. Everything else however, was excellent!!!!

    Fast delivery. I keep it on my keychain.

    Ordering was easy, arrived quickly. Have one on the car key, and one in the door side pocket. Hopefully will never have to find out how well they actually work!

  22. Daryl

    All is great. Your website is very relevant, product presentation and description are thorough and complete. Your staff is very prompt in all aspects. Thank you.

    I just wish I would have ordered the accessories for this at the same time. I didn’t realize until after the purchase it didn’t come with them.

  24. Liz

    Excellent tool. Practiced using it on other material and performs great & as described.

  25. Scott P.

    Excellent device and fast delivery

  26. Gerry M.

    Since the last one I bought, it seems like the blade guard is just too difficult to pull out and requires too much effort. I have no idea why it would need to lock in so tightly?

  27. Nancy Kulikowsky

    Don’t know…I’m still waiting for this product to be delivered.

  28. Cari

    I have had a Resqme car escape tool for about 10 years now and it is still in great shape. I have not used it in an emergency fortunately, but I was given the opportunity to test it out at a firehouse who had a practice vehicle on site. The window shatter was very easy and controlled (I am a 5’2″ female and wouldn’t qualify myself as a strong person), and the seatbelt cutter also worked very well. I feel safer having this tool!

    I’ve had one for years on my fire department turn out gear and love it. It was time to add one to each of our personal vehicles.

    Only took days for it to arrive. Can’t “try it out” by breaking my window or cutting my seatbelt, but I’m confident it’ll do the job. Has high reviews
