LifeHammer not only is the next step in the evolution of vehicle safety, but can also be held in the palm of the driver’s hand. Consisting of a double-tipped hardened steel hammer, and a safe seat belt cutting blade, it is designed as an aid drivers and passengers who, in the event of an emergency, need to quickly escape from their vehicle. Whether the emergency is due to submersion in water, a fire or a related event, this lifesaving device is easily stored out of the way, yet within range of the driver.
Mountable protection in the event of an auto entrapment emergency.
The demand for high-performance automobile safety equipment is on the rise, and Innovation Distributing’s LifeHammer is fast becoming standard safety equipment in vehicles all across North America. The LifeHammer cuts through safety belts and smashes car windows with a single motion, allowing trapped passengers to quickly escape. Entrapment is a real threat to motorists. Last year, AAA estimated that more than 11,000 vehicles sank in canals, lakes or other waterways, resulting in 292 deaths – almost one per day. According to statistics gathered by the National Highway Safety Council, incidents of entrapment increased by 100% between 1995 and 1998. A potential factor is the growing prevalence of power windows that can become jammed due to submersion or fire.

Simple to Use
In the event of a life-threatening auto entrapment emergency, time is of the essence. That’s why LifeHammer is designed with simplicity in mind. LifeHammer comes complete with a mounting bracket that both holds the tool securely in place and allows it to be mounted in your car within reach of the driver (professional mounting is recommended). In the event of entrapment in your vehicle just grab hold of the head of the LifeHammer, pulling it up and away from the mounting bracket. Use the razor-sharp blade to slice through your seat belt and swing the LifeHammer towards the side window to break the glass. The effectiveness of the blade is proven as a one-time use only, while the head can be reused many times, but should be inspected after every use.
