Res-q-me????
« on: February 06, 2010, 05:45:58 PM »
I read this somewhere and thought I'd share as it could save lives  :salute:
[qoute]
SAFETY NOTE

This tool will not break windscreens or laminated glass, some side windows are laminated. :ahhh :ahhh

[end quote]

Hmm not something you can test out when the brown stuff hits the fan  :think:

So guys what would we need to get through laminated glass? a Auto centre punch maybe?


Thoughts please  :tu: I think what ever I get I'm testing it out first  ;)

I have one, I tested it on various types of windscreens and it worked perfectly; also the blade is super sharp, cuts through seatbelts with no trouble.
Small warning-first time I tried to break windscreen I pressed the Res-q-me too hard onto the glass and my hand just went down through the hole in the windscreen-result,dozen small cuts.
After that I was careful, and it worked perfectly-I'm very satisfied with it, I keep one in my car

They tend to go cheaply enough already:

For less than ten bucks, you really can't go wrong!

I think this video shows the difference between laminate (windscreen) and standard (drivers door) glass.  maybe one of our LEO's or similar could confirm though.

Laminated glass will not shatter . Its two sheets of glass with a clear plastic sheet between them so a window punch would not be any good on them .
 
   I don't know how many or what model cars have laminated side windows here in the UK , all the vehicles i've ever owned ( old ) have had toughened glass side and rear .

Until it arrives I'm told that an auto centre punch will work (on the side windows)

My problem would be all my tools are in the back  :think:

Everything’s adjustable

The res-q-me is best kept near to you whilst driving anywhere else! it may as well be left at home  ::) :D

Yes it will work on side windows , if they are made of toughened glass i.e they smash into thousands of tiny peices when broken and often make a lovely pop sound  >:D  Toughened glass is made from normal glass (float ) but heated to around 700c then cooled quickly .

If some of the newer vehicles start putting laminated glass in side windows all the res-q-me will do is crack it .

I have one of these in the central console in each of our cars.

As has been said, for the price it's more a question of why you wouldn't get one/some.

Hi, first post.

I've been lurking for a fascinating week now, and feel I have something to contribute.

I was in a 'minor' roll-over accident, and all my handy tools were scattered about the truck.  My auto center punch (intended for just such a time) was nowhere to be found.  Fortunately for me, the side window shattered during the activity, and I climbed out... dazed & confused.   javascript:void(0);

All that to say, I now have the replacement punch and a SuperKnife duct taped to the side of my seat.  Out of sight, but accessable while belted in.  Both of those could be replaced w/a Res Q Me, but recommend you tether it!     javascript:void(0);

There are just 10 types of people in the world:  those who understand binary number systems, and those who don't

Welcome, BlueDot! Thanks for the account, never hurts to be ready.

I don't have a car, but I've hung a res-q-me behind my sister's rear-view mirror and told her how to use it. I reckon it'll be just a wee bit more useful than furry dice when something happens.

I've been upside down in a car before, and let me tell you, it's an experience like no other.  You are lucky to still be here with us BlueDot!

I agree, you need to find a way to keep tools secure and handy as you never know where they may end up if you don't.  This is also a good reason to have duplicates and backups all over the place.  And, at the price of many tools like the Res-Q-Me and some other rescue tools, you aren't likely to break the bank getting a few spares either!
