BodyGard 5-In-1 Emergency Tool

by Tiago

BodyGard 5-In-1 Emergency ToolI have seen plenty of devices that try to offer security for your car, most are related to keeping burglars away from it/don’t let them escape on the vehicle, but this Emergency Tool is the first device I know that works like the opposite and actually is made for vehicle owners to escape the car during dangerous situations if the doors or windows are not working properly.

With a total of 5 features in 1 device, the BodyGuard can become your best friend in a matter of seconds because it can actually save your life in critical scenarios. Here is what the little device is capable of:

  • Automatic glass breaker – image an afternoon in which you just had a car accident and must break the front glass of the car in order to run from the almost-to-explode car. If you can’t break the glass because of some nasty injuries, just use the breaker and you are safe.
  • Safety-blade seat belt cutter – on a similar scenario as the previous one, if the car accident was near an ocean/river and the car is drowning but you can’t remove the seat belt by yourself (or because it is broken), just use the blade and cut the damn belt.
  • Sonic alarm – this is like a “above the average” quality alarm, the only difference is the sound level it can reproduce which is much higher than normal alarms.
  • Flashing Red Distress Light – to make other people aware that there is a vehicle on the roads, you. It is easy to get it working, just a push and the red lights will start flashing. Combine this with the sonic alarm and the result is not good.
  • The last feature is called bright-wide LED flashlight, there isn’t much information about its capabilities and functions, but I’m thinking it has some close relation with the past red flashing lights.

The BodyGard 5-In-1 Emergency Tool is available at ThinkGeek for $15.

Glass breakers and seat belt cutters are the stupidest tools for a consumer. In ten years as a paramedic, I don’t recall ever cutting a seat belt. The buckle was always easier to use. And breaking a window is of limited use to the passengers, and can always be done with a rock or any handy hard object.

Ben, thanks for the input! From a non-paramedic view like mine, the features make some kind of sense, but it is always good to read 2 different opinions.

Can always be done with a rock or any handy hard object..

Let us see:

I am inside the car, under water..

Rock .. no
CD-case .. no
Cel-phone .. no
Padded windshield defogger .. no

I am quite able to break a window.. but my girl .. nah ..
surely not with any broken limb..

I don’t care if it’s improbably – I want to have those tools if I need them. And of course, the flashlight is handy on a day-to-day basis. A lot of companies that sell LED flashlights (ASP, Photon, etc.) charge $10-20 for just the light, so it’s not like you’re spending a ridiculous sum for the added protection.

Vat19 has them for a little more, but you can add a AAA kit and get free shipping, so that’s cool.

The TV show “Mythbusters” used a car going into the water to see how to escape it just this week. Contrary to what you may think, it is NOT easy to break the glass out and escape without using a tool. A cell-phone did not work, kicking it wasn’t successful, (a rock usually isn’t handy) and only a tool designed to break auto glass was a dependable way to break it. I’m getting one of these for each of my kids, as well as myself. It looked as if one of the tools they used was this one, and it worked well.

I have a question reguarding the sonic alarm. i bought one of these and i can’t figure out how to turn the alarm off without having to put the tag back in. Feel free to answer
