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.

    I bought these for “stocking stuffers” (adults of course)-they’re just right. I rec’d them quickly.

    Great product

  5. Nick S.

  6. Verified Buyer

    The tools are very handy, hanging from our reasr view mirrors for easy access. I have no way to test them, but they look as if they may do what is necessary if they are needed. If they videos shown are accurate, they should work just fine – although they are fairly small, and handling small items like this under extremely anxious conditions may make it difficult to use them. Unless I can find a way to test them (other than on my intact car windows) I will give them a tentative 4.

  7. Verified Buyer

    Bought High Vis colors

    If the card includes discussion on the different Mount options I wish they had been included.

    Quick service and the Car Escape Tool is small and handy so it is easy to keep were you need it.

  16. Lynn P.

    I haven’t had the chance to use the Resqme yet, but that’s the idea, right? Just to have it on hand makes me feel much safer in my car. And it’s very cute in the meantime!

    Ordered July 10th, still hasn’t arrived. Tracker has said it’s in country since the 31st of July.

    I saw this on the Missing TikTok. I ordered 3 for myself, my son and his fiance’. Hopefully we won’t ever need to use them but it is reassuring to know we all have them. They are great quality and shipped super fast.

    Still waiting for my purchase to arrive. Taking FOREVER

  31. Heather Dickey

    I bought a three pack on Amazon after watching a video where a woman fatally drowned after being stuck in her car for an hour while she waited for rescue to find her in a flooded creek. Had she been able to break her window and escape on her own, she might have survived. Her car was found in 5 feet of water, but rescuers couldn’t find her. The 911 operator was mean to her and didn’t listen when she gave her the best description of her location. She was a newspaper delivery person out on an early morning route. The resqme tool is well made, not cheap plastic like others I’ve seen. I like the break away clip that you can pull the tool off of wherever you hook it. I attached a piece of an old pool noodle to mine so it floats incase I drop it in a panic. I gave one to each of my kids who are new drivers.

    The product is fine. However, I specially ordered 5 Yellow but instead received white. Shame detail was not given to the order.

  35. Scott Hackman

  36. John DeChant

    I hope I never have to use them🐻

  37. Laura

    Sent 3 of the 7 I ordered in the wrong color. I ordered 4 black and 3 white, received 4 black and 3 yellow. Cannot figure out good way to communicate for exchange.

    Nice for keys or passenger headrest.

  47. Bev Stover

    These were given away at a seminar. Very well received and appreciated. Seems like an excellent and expertly crafted product.

  48. Maria DeArman

    I have been wanting one for me and for each of my family members, after reading reviews about your product and watching YouTube videos about it, I finally made the purchase. I hope we don’t have to use it, but if we have the need, I will be glad that we have the tool 🙂

    Without actually using this product it’s hard to review. But having a small tool, readily available in the event of emergency, and at a very affordable price seems like a very good thing.

  67. Patricia H.

    Purchased as stocking stuffers for adults to keep in cars for emergency needs. One was put to good use about a month after Christmas when daughter-in-law came upon a car wreck. She used it to break the rear window out to rescue a crying child from his car seat. Wonderful tool!

    I watched many YouTube videos on this product from many different, unconnected people, and everyone was impressed with it. I thought it may be useful for other people we can help as well. I hope to never have to use it, but it is nice to know if I do, it will work.
