    Good morning all,

    Head Note: I don't know if this is an advanced or basic subject.

    Article about breaking car windows when sinking in water so as to evacuate vehicle.

    Narrative tells of AAA testing 6 tools to break windows.

    Foot Note: Besides above type of tool, don't neglect carrying a fire extinguisher in vehicle.

    Good post, we always used to have fire extinguishers, but somewhere along the line in changing vehicles etc they have gone missing. Tools for breaking windows are another thing we need. My wife just added these to her "got to get list".

    Just one more reason to carry. Bullet holes and the pistol as a hammer, window gone. Not going to have to worry about over penetration either. JM2C

    Sharp pointed tools are better at breaking safety glass
    Start near a corner instead of in the middle of the pane.
    There will be less flex.
    An automatic center punch is a great tool and doesn't require a lot of strength to use, in case you're already injured. It's also a decent make-shift weapon if you get a properly sized tool.

    "Automatic center punch - Wikipedia
    An automatic center punch is a hand tool used to produce a dimple in a workpiece . It performs the same function as an ordinary center punch but without the need for a hammer. When pressed against the workpiece, it stores energy in a spring, eventually releasing it as an impulse that drives the punch, producing the dimple. The impulse provided to the point of the punch is quite repeatable, allowing for uniform impressions to be made."

    Good morning Snyper,

    My compliments plus additional "Thank You"s for adding the important aspect "in case you're already injured".

    This point is frequently, if not usually, omitted from the preparedness scenario.

    During major emergencies and disasters, it's common for injuries to occur as a function of the emergency/disaster.
