Question about the Res-Q-Me Keychain Emergency Escape Tool, ORANGE and the LifeHammer® Escape Tool, Original, ORANGE

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.

Sincerely, Barbara

Add Logos to Res-Q-Me and Life Hammer Safety Escape Devices for Give-Away or Fund-Raising

Question about the Res-Q-Me Escape Tool.

Q:"I work for a major company that provides mass transportation across the nation. We've decided that giving Res-Q-Me escape tools or Life Hammers will be part of our acknowledging the safety record of one of our divisions. I need 300 units with our company logo imprinted on each units plus a brief acknowledgment of their accomplishments. We prefer the Res-Q-Me units as they can fit on our employees' keychains. Is this possible? How long does it take? Can you give me some ball-park figures on additional costs?" Thanks from Steve.

Answer: Both the Life Hammer and the Res-Q-Me can be personalized to be sold to support a school, fire department, etc. or as a give-away to employees, customers, etc. The cost is related to number of color of inks used, how quickly they are needed and whether the color you choose is in stock. The minimum for personalizing or imprinting is 100 units. At this time, April 2010, the set-up fee is $75 to $125 and the rush fee is $100 for 48 hour service just for the imprinting. What we need is a high resolution logo and/or high resolution printing. Figure on a minimum of $1.25 extra per unit at this time (April 2010) with ground shipping for one color in minimums of 100 units. Typical lead time for imprinting is 21 days to 14 days plus shipping time (4 t0 5 business days.)

For larger quantities, we do have quantity pricing available. On the Res-Q-Me, both the clip and the unit itself can have lettering or logo's imprinted. Due to the small size of the unit, larger more complicated logos might not work well. Both products have seat belt cutters and glass break devices for escape from cars, trucks, etc.

The Life Hammer has more room for imprinting due to its larger size. Currently, the colors available in the Res-Q-Me are bright orange, pink with part of each sale going to fight breast cancer, red, blue, black and yellow. The Life Hammer is now available in original bright orange, pink (part of each sale going to breast cancer research) and black.

Thank you very much for your question and your order!

Sincerely, Barbara
