Rolling into the sea in your vehicle isn't a high risk for many motorists, but if your local roadways and geography make it a possibility, you'd certainly want this automotive safety gadget. Ideal for assisting your evacuation from a sinking car, this mechanism performs a handful of functions that will enable your escape.
Designed to be stored and secured within your glove compartment, the Self Rescuer can be yanked out easily and used firstly as a seatbelt cutter, if necessary. If you're trapped inside, pressurized gas inside creates an air gun that can bust through windows without much effort on the user's part. Finally, the same CO2 gas within the canister can be applied as a fire retardant.
This concept for an automotive safety device responds to improved safety features of cars that can actually make it more difficult to get out in dangerous situations.
