The Great Escape! 5 Useful Tools To Use If You’re Trapped In Your Car

April 20th, 2022 by


You probably don’t think that it will ever happen to you, but sometimes just hoping that something doesn’t happen isn’t enough to prevent it. Knowing how to escape your car could potentially save your life, especially if you live in areas that are prone to flooding. You’ll want to have some tools at hand that will make it easier for you to escape, as this could potentially be the difference between life and death. Luckily, our writers at Driver’s Auto Mart have found 5 handy tools to keep in your car’s safety kit.

Resqme Keychain Car Escape Tool

This keychain from Resqme is a helpful tool should you find yourself trapped by your seatbelt or need to crack your windows. This little gadget comes with a seatbelt cutter and a tiny hammer to break your car’s windshield or side windows. While it’s smart to leave some sort of escape equipment in your glove compartment, it’s even smarter to also have Resqme’s keychain in your pocket. It’s also available in various colors to add a little style to your tool kit.

VicTsing 2-Pack Car Emergency Escape Tool

This 2-in-1 pack of emergency hammers might not be as small and convenient to carry around as the Resqme…or stylish, but it does offer a standout orange that just screams “emergency!” Even more important is that it seems to be a hit with buyers on Amazon. This tool doesn’t shy away from the fact that it’s a glass hammer, but it also comes with a seatbelt cover that’s hidden at the bottom.

Workpro 8-in-1 Escape Tool

If you’re looking for even more helpful features, then we highly recommend investing in the Workpro 8-in-1 safety tool. This instrument not only possesses a seatbelt cutter and a glass hammer, but it also comes with a tire pressure gauge, a tread depth gauge, an LED flashlight, a tire deflator, a magnet, and a flashing light. This is 8 tools in 1 all for a $17-a steal!

Swiss+Tech BodyGard Auto Emergency Escape Tool

This 3-in-1 doesn’t have nearly as many features as the Workpro, but it still provides one with its essentials. The Swiss+Tech, as with the previous tools on this list, offers a seatbelt cutter and a glass hammer, but it also stands out with its built-in LED light that could be a lifesaver in an emergency.

Ztylus Special Design Stinger USB Emergency Escape Tool

Last on this list is a rather…peculiar take on what we’d define as an escape tool. Rather than just being an emergency device, the Ztylus Special Design Stinger is also a USB charger, which means that it can break through some thick glass while simultaneously charging your phone. What matters more is that one is more likely to store it in a spot that is easy to access and you’ll always have it handy on your daily commutes and long road trips.

Driver’s Auto Mart

Another useful tool for drivers might be a utility truck or an SUV, which we have plenty in store for you at our dealership, Driver’s Auto Mart. We sell a wide range of vehicles from the brand that range in various shapes and sizes. Simply view our online pre-owned inventory and chat with a representative for more information.
