Life is precious and it is therefore a must for every individual to be take precautions in whatever he or she does. In driving vehicles, it is of utmost importance to have oneís focus on the road all the time to avoid accidents.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reveals that each year, car accidents claim the lives of about 3,000 people around the world costing billions of dollars. In the U.S., an average of 115 persons die every day in motor vehicle crashes. In 2005 alone, of the 6.42 million cases of car accidents recorded in the U.S., 2.9 million were injury cases while more than 42,000 led to deaths.

This car escape tool is made from very durable and high quality material enabling it to do critical functions during emergency situations such as breaking car side windows and cutting through safety belts that may have jammed.

The original Lifehammer is made in Europe with a Belgian design as well as German steel blade and unique hammer tips. Weighing about 3.5 ounces and measuring less than seven inches in length, this emergency hammer can easily be stored in your carís compartment.

The double tipped hammerhead is the secret of this car escape tool. With its two steel points, it can shatter windows instantly while its blade is as sharp as a knife. This life hammer is lightweight because of its plastic mounting, its blade is protected for your safety and its knob is made of fluorescent material that glows in the dark so you can easily find it.
