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. 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.

    Great product and fast service

  2. Anonymous

    Fast and Easy. (Simple)

  3. ROBERT M.

    In fairness, I can’t really rate the product since I haven’t had to use it, and hope I never do. But it seems well made, and the service was great.

  4. Patricia

    Smart looking. Great design. Much impressed. Also impressed with the option given of either key ring attachment or zip tie to the rear view mirror. I opted for the rear view mirror and I think I will add a lanyard because I can imagine dropping the thing and being screwed. Especially if you upside down in the vehicle and suspended in the air, held in place by your seatbelt as I was a few years back. My body weight and gravity would not let me undo my seatbelt. I could only barely reach my keys to turn off the engine. The keys fell. So yeah…a lanyard option would be a great add on.

    A simple, low cost tool which I hope I’ll never have to use.

    I did not receive a complete order. I emailed your customer service at on Monday February 7th. As of today, not even a courtesy email of acknowledgment. That is lousy customer service to ignore me once you have my money and sent me an incomplete order.

  9. Diane M.

    Have not had to use this and I hope I never do. But, I’m glad I have it just in case

    Thanks, this is a necessary tool !

  19. Elky S.

    Colors I ordered arrived in a timely fashion. Thankfully didn’t have a chance to use yet

  20. Graci

    Great concept. The ability to quickly grab in an emergency is well thought out. I just recently was looking for a safety kit for my car and most kits just offer the window breaker hammer. Wish they would put these in. Because timing and convience can be everything in an emergency. Just wish they all came with all of the accessories (visor attachment or mirror hanger. I already purchased some for a gift, but then wished my recipient had the option to put it on his visor. T
    Because it is reusable you can test it! Just be careful. When i tested my glass broke intovery fine pieces and because i had bare arms, i got some minor cuts. So wear a long sleeve shirt and goggles. Also, love all the color options, it makes it easy to customize for a unique gift.

  21. Martin

    Fast, friendly, exactly as ordered.

  22. Kris

    Love these. Lightweight but sturdy enough to get the job down. Great little tool.

  23. Lann Wolf

  27. Raina Lizarraga

    We have a resqme in every vehicle, and have for years. My daughter just got her license and insisted on having a pink one.
    Thankfully, we have never had to use any of them, but we feel better knowing we have them.

    I feel better protected in an emergency now that I have my Reqme Car Escape Tool.

  40. Steven L.

    This small lightweight tool has been so useful and reliable over the course of my firefighter career. I purchased more for my crew to carry and use at all times too!

  41. Annie

    Order placed over a month ago and still hasn’t arrived. Very disappointed.

  42. Loren M.

    Everything is good.

  45. Roger

    Quality items

  46. Alyssa

    I ordered 3 of these so the drivers in my family can each have one attached to their keys if anything ever happened. Thank goodness we haven’t had to use it so idk how well it works in action, but the little tool itself looks nice and seems to be made with quality.

  47. Anonymous

    Great product, simple to use. Hope I never have an emergency requiring its use though.

  48. Lifesaver D.

    Great product!

  49. George K.

    Got transparent one so we could see how they work. Love these things, told my kids to replace their L!fe Hammers with these.

  50. Brian M.

    Handy size for hanging close to the driver.

  51. Happy C.

    Haven’t used it to escape yet but it’s he yellow is bright just like I want. Plus made in USA. Likely to buy more.

  52. Sylvie L.

    I am part of a health security comite and we approved to buy for each vehicles of conservatory agent’s. Recently, a team went on a slippery road and lost control the vehicle. That used the resqme to cut their seat belt. We saw at that time the good decision we had made to purchase it. From Canada

  53. Kristi K.

    I purchased the keychains for all of my kids in July of 2016 and today September 1, 2020 my daughter was in a rollover accident. She was trapped upside down in her vehicle. She was able to get her tool off her keys cut her seatbelt and break her window and get out of her car. So thankful for this product.

  54. Dayten G.

    Arrived quickly. I love the product, the only thing I would add is an emergency whistle.

  55. Lisa J.

    This is a great product and makes a Fantastic Gift – what better way to show someone how much you care about their safety. Everyone should have one of these in their vehicles.

  56. Logan M.

    I got hooked when I got it in my battlbox and when I watch southern survival and my mom wanted one for her birthday

  57. Quinn W.

    It always pays to be prepared!

  58. Pedro G.

    Feels sturdy and reliable. The suggestion on how to place it in the car is great. I didn’t follow it but I was inspired by it to hang it in place where is visible and to my reach.

  59. Agnieszka M.

    I ordered a pack of 6 for my whole family. Received order in lightning fast time! I am pleased with the construction and instructions. I pray that none of us ever need to put these to the test, but if we do I am fairly confident these will work as stated.

  60. Daniel

    Nice item. Seems well made, I just hope I never need it.

  61. ashleigh

    I think it’s a great idea! Everyone should have one.

    Great tools, excellent service. Everyone should have one of these

  66. Christine S.

    Our hope is that this is the prettiest little tool we never need. It arrived quickly and just as expected. We can’t give it 5 stars because we don’t have proof it works from personal use. We saw this demonstrated on Southern Survival and felt it was an important tool to have in the car just incase…

    As a Trooper in a rural state, I’ve had to use this to get to someone in a rollover. The Resqme made quick work to break the window and get to the unconscious victim. Amazing product, unfortunately, the spring has recently failed while only attached to my duty belt. Will be purchasing another.

  69. Dante

    I carry this tool in my gear as a firefighter and cannot say enough good things. Compact, and surly gets the job done! I have been using it for years with absolutely no issues. These should be mandatory for all first responders!

  70. Ashton Packe

    Your tiny, innovative product helped save a man’s life that night, and made my job much easier. If you have family members who drive cars, this is a must have item…

  71. Nancy

    Great tool! The design is very modern and it looks great in my car. Comfortable to hold and easy to use. A must have in all cars! I feel a lot safer knowing this is in my car.

  72. Jimothy

    Really great tool. Seriously, this is a must have for all motorists, because you might need it tomorrow. The seatbelt cutter is very sharp, and the glass breaker works great. It’s hard to spring it on accident, so there’s little chance of hurting yourself. Even if you press hard and do spring it on your thumb, it’ll only bruise for a day (just don’t mess around). Really, it’s hard to hurt yourself. This tool stays on it’s clip, doesn’t come off unless you yank it off. Doesn’t really require much effort, just deliberate motion. Seriously, get this now. I’m 15, and here I am with a resqme. Never know when you’ll need it, and it’s a great product.

  73. Diala

    Both my high-school age daughters drive. We live in a rural location w/o public or school transportation available and they drive together to school and back. Every time they leave I feel anxious. I could drive them back and forth daily, but I choose to encourage them to drive. My reasoning? By the time they head out to college and on their own, they will have years of driving experience under their belt. They will have dealt with the traffic, bad weather, and many many bad drivers out there. It’s a risk, but now, since they live with me, they will always have my cautions and warnings fresh in their ears as they come and go.

  74. Vanessa Kurtz

    I would have nightmares about drowning in my truck. Now I know I have a way to get me and my children out. After being swept away in a flash flood and my car sinking, I’ve had panic attacks going over bridges etc. This gives me peace of mind and truly works. Thank You!!

  75. James Drake

    Great product! Save a life and buy a resqme.
