2: Seat Belt Cutter
No one wants to be involved in a car accident and there are situations where it is life-threatening. One lucky Reddit user described how this particular item essentially saved their life. “Never had to use the business end, but the cutter is the reason why I still have legs after the only bad accident I’ve ever been in (the engine block collapsed shortly after I got out of the car). EDIT: Because I was asked how the engine block collapsed; I was hit by a drunk driver in an F-350, and the angle of the collision destroyed the front part of the car – the block collapsed because nothing was holding it.”
The seat belt cutter can mean the difference between the driver getting to safety or being stuck in the vehicle. Once a vehicle has been compromised it’s only a matter of time until an engine fire or worst starts. Seat belt cutters are a great tool to have that helps drivers walk away from a crash intact.
