Experts attain that you might have only 30 seconds to escape if you are ever in a situation where you are in a sinking car. Don’t take life for granted. Being prepared for anything is not a bad thing. I like to be prepared, it gives me the peace of mind that I might survive a tragic event if it ever arises. The autoXscape vehicle-mounted life-saving flashlight gives me that peace of mind.
Let’s get real for a moment. What are your chances that you will end up in a sinking car? Pretty slim. However, if you ever were in one, wouldn’t you want to be able to escape and save yourself and your family if you had to?
The above scenario is unlikely to happen, but what if you were in a crash, and your car caught fire? That could happen, and being able to cut your seatbelt quickly and possibly smashing your window if your door was jammed would be easier if you had autoXscape vehicle-mounted life-saving flashlight.
The autoXscape can be used for everyday issues as well. If it is dark and you are having engine troubles or a flat tire there are two settings on the flashlight that can provide you ample light.
There is a third option for the flashlight that allows it to shine in S.O.S, that’s right folks S.O.S
I also did a video of where you might want to place one of the two steel window punches while you are in your vehicle.
At this point, I bet you are thinking how can I get one of these for myself or my loved one. You can grab it here from Amazon right now.
The above picture is just one idea I had of where I would mount it in my own Nissan Xterra. I feel that it would be something that could help save my life if it ever occurred. It comes with two ways to mount the bracket. Adhesive tape is the easiest option, but it also comes with screws for a more permanent option.
The picture below is where I would punch to break the window in my SUV. The corners are the best place to do it for safety reasons.
Be sure to visit their website, Facebook, and Twitter.
This is something I think that needs to be in every car, truck and SUV so someone has a chance to survive if they need be. This would also make a great gift idea and don’t forget Christmas is coming sooner than you think.
Thumbs up from me on this one! Grab one today!

Rhonda Best says
I have something very similar in my car, keep it handy, but secure.
Calvin F. says
A hardy survival tool that you can depend on.
Amber Ludwig says
This is so handy!! Talk about something that is so important!! I love that it mounts right in your vehicle!
Deborah D says
I Believe that every new vehicle that is bought should have one of these included in the sale of the vehicle. After all it can save your life just like a seat belt can.
Deb E says
I just cleaned out my car trunk and assessed what safety things I have and what I need and this is one I need. I like the multi-use tools like this one.
Tamra Phelps says
That would be a good tool to have. Like you said, you will probably never need it, but if you do, you REALLY do!
Sylvia Zajis says
I think this is a fabulous product that absolutely everyone could benefit by owning one. None of us want to think of something horrible happening but things do everyday in this world and its better to be prepared. I would feel much safer owning one of these! Thanks for the review!
Linda Manns Linneman says
This sounds like a great product to have with you in emergencies like these. I would love for each of my family members to have one of these. Thank you for sharing
Margaret Appel says
This is an excellent gift idea, not to mention it would be smart to have one in every car one owned. It is a shame this doesn’t come automatically with every car purchased!
Jo-Ann Brightman says
Although I have a flashlight in the car this is so much more. I love the SOS feature and to have the ability to cut a seat belt or smash/cut through a window.
Holly Thomas says
My husband has a seatbelt cutter that also breaks the window, I like this so much better because the flashlight would be a huge asset in a emergency.
Lauryn R says
I love that this flashlight is multifunctional! My husband has a knife that has a window breaker on it, but I have never seen a flashlight with one!
ellen beck says
I really like that this is a multi tool and can be mounted. We have an emergency bag in every vehicle, but it isnt right at your fingertips like this would be. We have friends that are EMTs and the window breaking tool alone would be well worth it. I am deathly afraid the electric windows will fail.. hubby’s truck has electric, my little Ranger is manual. I would have this in hubbys truck on my side (OK on his side it is his truck after all)
wen budro says
Wow……that looks like an excellent tool to keep in my car. It is small and compact yet it has numerous life saving functions.
Debbie Welchert says
What a great product to keep inside your vehicle. I would love to get one of these for my daughter’s car. I sure would feel better when she’s out and about, if she had one of these in her car.
Wendy R. says
I don’t think I have ever had a flashlight in my car…. my husband has always had one in his vehicle though. Certainly SHOULD have one for sure. The other functions are really great too, to have if needed. I like that you can mount this wherever you would like/need.
Christina Graham says
I keep meaning to buy something like this. I have a major fear of being stuck in my car if submerged in water, I always thought that a person would be too panicky to even locate the tool when needed. I love that this tool is mounted in an easy to reach place that is always seen so it serves as a reminder every time you get in the car. Great review!
Tom Shewbridge says
Thank you, Christina, I enjoyed doing this one. As a former Paramedic, I enjoy sharing things to help other people stay safe! ~Tom
Marilyn Nawara says
This would be great to have in an emergency. Really like that it can be mounted in an easy to reach location.
Has a few flashlights. This one looks awesome. I’m terrify of going in a lake in a wreck and not being able to get out.
Germaine Harrison says
I really could use this in my car because I take a lot of road trips.
Stan Litvin says
This is need to have each member of the family. Great product.
I like the the detachable clip as I prefer my flashlights in my pockets. Great review.
Great review of the autoXscape Tom. This tool definitely offers more options than the fladshlight with the strike bezel.
I agree that preparation for anything is a good thing. One’s life could be in danger at any moment. This sort of tool can be the difference between life and death.
Linda Manns Linneman says
I would love one of these for each member of my family. This sounds great for alot of emergencies. My son went into a pond one time with his car. This would have been a great help. Thank you so much for sharing
It’s always a good idea to carry a flashlight in the car. You never know what may happen.
Lisa Ogle says
What an awesome tool to have around, autoXscapeis exactly what I need. Nice review defiantly sharing this one.
I like the idea of this but where do you put it that’s handy and out of the way? The fact that it has a flash light and a seat belt cutter are great features and the SOS is something that I never would have thought of. Is this something the “light fingered” guys at the car wash could steal or does it have a permanent fixture to fasten it to? Sorry that this is so long but I’m curious. Thanks –
Tom Shewbridge says
Hi, thanks for the comment and I understand your concern. I could only suggest maybe your console if you have one, or your glove box. ~Tom
belinda bell says
This would be great to have in my car. I am always afraid of not being able to get out in a emergency
Darcy Koch says
What an amazing item to have in your car. I like how it mounts plus it is also a flashlight as well as being able to signal S.O.S This would make a great gift for Christmas. And, I would feel safer knowing my loved ones had one in their car.
Marti Tabora says
This is definitely something I need to have in my car, especially living in Florida where there is a lot of water all over the place. I’d feel good if my son had one in his car as well.
Vickie L Couturier says
i travel on the road a lot long distances,this would be perfect for me to have by my slde while driving ,,pretty cool little gadget
monique s says
Wow…this is such a must have. It is feature rich and can save your life. Something you really need when you need it
Nice review, Tom! I want one of these in my car.
kelly tupick says
This tool looks amazing and something that would surely help in an accident. People don’t think of it most of the time but this could be life saving! This would make for a great gift for a new teen driver too.
kate g says
This just looks like a really solid tool. What I really like about it is it’s an ‘all-in-one’ safety tool….it has a bracket to place it where it can be easily grabbed and not have to be searched for and it’s the perfect size for my car and it’ll fit in my pocket.. The beam distance surprised me, I didn’t expect anything like that.
