emergency hammer/cutter is a specialist multi-tool device which
is designed to be carried within the passenger compartment of a
car - usually in the glovebox.
An emergency hammer/cutter tool has a sharp pointed hammer head
at one end which is designed to smash the laminated safety glass
of a vehicle to allow access if the doors are jammed or locked shut
after an accident. The cutter end is designed to cut the seatbelts
in order to help extraction of injured persons, or when the seatbelt
release button is jammed or inaccessible.
