When Seconds Matter® - be prepared.

Every driver has a concern about being trapped in a vehicle in an accident. First, there is the worry about being unable to release a seat belt because it is jammed or if the release is inaccessible. Second, there are the difficulties of escaping a vehicle that has been submerged in water. Water pressure may make it difficult or impossible to open doors or lower windows until water has seeped in and the internal pressure is equalized. Custom knife maker Russ Kommer recognized the need for a simple and affordable emergency tool. We call it the ExiTool®

Every driver has a concern about being trapped in a vehicle in an accident. First, there is the worry about being unable to release a seat belt because it is jammed or if the release is inaccessible. Second, there are the difficulties of escaping a vehicle that has been submerged in water. Water pressure may make it difficult or impossible to open doors or lower windows until water has seeped in and the internal pressure is equalized.

Custom knife maker Russ Kommer recognized the need for a simple and affordable emergency tool. We call it the ExiTool®.

The ExiTool® fits unobtrusively onto any standard seat belt with a simple folding clasp. It includes a seat belt cutter, a tungsten carbide window breaker, and a bright L.E.D. flashlight.

The seat belt cutter has been carefully designed so that is nearly impossible for even the smallest fingers to accidentally reach the blade. Its blade is made of Razor-Sharp high-carbon stainless steel, and will cut seat belts in one quick pull.

The side windows of modern vehicles are made of glass which is tempered to shatter on impact. The ExiTool® features a small tungsten carbide breaker point. Just grasp the ExiTool® body firmly and strike the window to break it. For best results, hit the window as close to the bottom edge as possible.

The breaker has two emergency uses. On dry land, if the vehicle's doors are jammed closed, the breaker can allow instant escape through a side window. If the vehicle is submerged, most safety experts recommend using the air supply which is trapped inside before breaking a window to avoid a sudden onrushing flow of water. However, this will vary depending on the depth of the water and the condition of the passengers. The ExiTool® will allow driver or passengers to break the window instantly when it is needed.

The L.E.D. light uses one replaceable CR2032 3-Volt lithium battery. Of course, the flashlight is useful in non-emergency situations, too.

We think every vehicle should have at least one ExiTool®.

To say Russ is an outdoorsman is a bit of an understatement. A professional fishing and hunting guide, he started making knives when one of his clients brought him a custom knife and dressed an entire moose—without sharpening it. Since then he’s made it his duty to build the kind of tools only he would use. It just so happens his Bear Claw’s™, and Hoist’N Lok®, are the kinds other hunters use as well.
