CRKT ExitTool -Designed by Russ Kommer


CRKT ExitTool -Designed by Russ Kommer

  Hopefully you would never have a need to use this tool but if you were ever trapped in a vehicle, I'd hope you have something like this handy.  A few years ago Mythbusters tested out the ability to escape a sinking car and arrived at two options, either get out immediately before the water starts to rise past the doors or sit patiently until the water inside the car fills up past the doors equalizing the pressure. I think panic would set in for the majority of people and they not be able to sit calmly waiting for the water to rise high enough to open the door.  This tool could help you get out of the seat belt and break the glass  to escape a little sooner.  The tool has a small clip which allows it to be unobtrusively attached to the end of a seat belt.
In addition to the seat belt cutter and glass breaker, the tool has an LED flashlight.  The CRKT ExiTool is available directly through CRKT or on Amazon with an MSRP of $26.99.

Full Disclosure: This is just a cool tool we stumbled across while reading a car magazine and we have received no incentive or compensation for promoting this item.  It just looks like a good idea and we have purchased a few and will follow up if they are or are not as advertised.
