Today's Kool Idea: LifeHammer Original Emergency Hammer

We at The Daily Kool practically live in our car. Between work, school and other commutes, we almost spend more time in our Saturn than we do at home. It's a good thing we love our car...but have we forgotten just how dangerous it can be? Driving today, we took some time to watch other drivers and how they handle their cars. We were really shocked at how many people were not really paying attention to the road. We saw women putting on their makeup, several cell phone talkers, someone working on his compute and a mother turning around to yell at her children. It is so easy to get distracted behind the wheel...not just for us, but especially for younger drivers. It seems that every day the news announces a tragic car crash fatality. A huge percentage of those car crashes involve entrapment in a lake, canal, ravine or other body or water. How do we protect ourselves and our loved ones in the event of an emergency?

When we had our first child, someone gave us the LifeHammer Original Emergency Hammer as a (believe it or not) baby gift. Perhaps the gift was a little unorthodox, but the sincerity behind it was truly touching. As parents, we were responsible for this precious new life, and the LifeHammer was our gift-giver's way of reminding us that his safety should always be our top priority. So, along with our new infant seat, we went ahead and had our new LifeHammer professionally installed.

Let's start out by saying that we at The Daily Kool sincerely hope that you will never need to use the LifeHammer . That said, we strongly believe that each and every car should be equipped with a safety device such as this. The LifeHammer is recommended by water safety expert Gerald Dworkin, a consultant for Lifesaving Resources, Inc. and has been featured on the CBS Early Show. Dworkin points out, "Once the vehicle hits the water, you only have between 30 seconds and several minutes to make your escape." Having an escape tool such as the LifeHammer could be the difference between life and death in a vehicle entrapment situation. Don't let its light weight fool you...this is one serious piece of hardware. With its double-sided head and hammered steel points, the LifeHammer Original Emergency Hammer will shatter your car's side and rear windows with minimal effort in the event of an emergency. It also has a razor-sharp blade to cut through seat belts to free a trapped passenger and a florescent button to ensure nighttime visibility.

We at The Daily Kool have expressed our love and concern by purchasing a LifeHammer for almost everyone in our family. Though we have never had to use it (thank goodness), we feel much more comfortable for our children knowing that we have this safety device in our car. Please, please protect your family and keep an emergency hammer like this in your never know what might happen when you least expect it.

  1. I just received an email about a woman who just died in a tragic auto water immersion accident.

    Here is the actual email:

    Good morning.....unfortunately, our work family suffered a tragic loss on Friday May 1. The morning show producer for WPYO Erica Roman (33) died due to an automobile rollover into a retention pond. Somehow, a boat lounge chair was lying on the Florida Turnpike southbound. The car in front of Erica swerved out of the way at the last moment, but she was boxed in on the left and could not avoid the chair unless she swerved onto the right shoulder. She lost control, and the car flipped and rolled into a retention pond. People traveling on both sides of the Turnpike ran to help. By the time they got her out of the car (12 minutes), she was dead. The people who pulled her car out of the retention pond by hand (with chains on the bumper) preformed CPR, and revived her, but she died at the hospital. If she had a life hammer there might have been a different outcome.
