People don’t always expect to be in a life threatening situation until they’re actually in the heat of the moment, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t be prepared.
The BodyGard 5-1 is an emergency tool inspired by the classic Swiss knife design with useful technology including an automatic glass breaker, safety blade seat belt cutter, sonic alarm, flashing red distress light and a flash light.
The tool comes in handy in a number of dangerous situations and can be placed on your key chain, but it detaches easily with a firm yank.
The glass breaker is ideal in helping drivers escape their vehicle by breaking the window if their car becomes inoperable due to damage, water submergence or even fire.
The glass breaker is spring-loaded, so it automatically shoots out when pressed firmly against a vehicle’s side or rear window.
The safety-blade seat belt cutter can free a driver or passengers from their seats if their seat belts do not unlatch after an accident.
The sonic alarm sounds off with a loud shriek and is perfect for warding off a possible attack. The bright flashing like is a great signal to indicate you’re in a distress.
The device only weighs 1 ounce and it comes with a lifetime warranty.
While some customers rave over the Body Gard, others find the device too bulky and feel that the device doesn’t work as well as they’d like.
Comparable tools, such as Rescue One offers similar features also aimed at getting you out of life threatening situations.
Regardless of how you choose to defend yourself in unexpected emergencies, you only have one life, so guard it well.
Here’s to technology that simplifies your life!
