Q: "Are these the escape tools recently seen on the TV shows Doctor OZ, The Doctors, The Mythbusters and the Today Show? I am interested in purchasing some as gifts and for personal use. Recently there were several drownings near us where cars went into rivers or canals and the occupants could not get the doors open. Are they available in other colors? Thanks. Ted."
Answer: Yes, you are correct. All these shows emphasize safety in the home, in the workplace and while traveling. The products come in many colors. There are discounts on quantities. In fact, you can have them personalized although we recommend this be in a minimum of 100 units as set up fees must be charged. Both products can be used to cut seat belts and to break out non-laminated, i.e. side windows of cars. Often emergency personnel like firemen and police use them in rescues as well.
The available colors for Res-Q-Me escape tools include black, orange, pink, red, yellow, and blue. Part of the profit from each pink one sold goes to National Breast Cancer Detection.
Lifehammers are now made in two other colors besides orange i.e. black and in pink. Part of the profits from every pink LifeHammer are given to support Breast Cancer Awareness month with free exams for those who cannot afford them otherwise.
The Res-Q-Me in made in the USA. The LifeHammer is the original which is made in the Netherlands.
Thank you for your question.
