Life Hammer – The original Auto escape Tool

After an accident, seat belt releases, doors, or windows may become jammed or inaccessible.
In this situation, the very devices designed to protect your life may threaten to endanger it.
Be prepared for the unexpected – keep a LifeHammer in your car at all times.
The Life Hammer has an emergency hammer and seatbelt cutter to release you and your passengers from an unsafe vehicle. The Life Hammer is the most popular product of its kind and has been featured on The Today Show.
Thousands of new drivers take to the roadways each year in the United States and other countries. Unfortunately, as the statistics for new drivers rise, so do the statistics for accidents and death. Last year, there were over 41,800 traffic fatalities on United States roadways alone.

Being in an accident is a frightening situation, I’ve been there just as most of us have, and its even scarier if you are trapped within your vehicle. This is a scenario we try not to think about on a daily basis, but peace of mind cannot be fully felt without protecting yourself should such a situation occur. Airbags and safety belts are lifesaving aids, but when your vehicle is in a compromising position, the releases for these devices may not work properly In an upturned vehicle the full weight of occupants body weight on the seat belts makes them virtually impossible to release. In addition, damage to doors may mean that window frames have been wrenched out of alignment and are no longer able to be opened.
Some people have asked if the Life Hammer takes up a lot of space. Weighing in at under four ounces, this compact device is easily mounted within easy reach. You won’t know its there, unless you have to use it. The safety features include:

Works on Both Ends. The Life Hammer has a double sided head with hardened steel points that shatter vehicle windows quickly in an emergency. You won’t have to turn the hammer around and lose valuable time if you need to knock out multiple windows.

Includes Hardware for Mounting. A bracket is included to hold The Life Hammer in place and to mount it within the vehicle console so its easily accessible.

Razor Sharp Blade Cuts Easily. This high-quality blade will slice through a seat belt in seconds to free trapped passengers.

Glows in the Dark. Innovation has equipped The Life Hammer with a florescent button for easy retrieval in the dark.

Recently a good friend of mine told me that his daughter had passed her road exam and was now able to drive. As pleased and proud as he was, he was also apprehensive, and wanted to ensure she would be protected should an accident occur. I recommended The Life Hammer and he still thanks me whenever I see him. She hasn’t had to use it, but it was the best gift he could’ve given her. Consider it for any teen driver in your family, as a graduation gift, or for holidays. Any age benefits from the peace of mind this device will provide. Many people purchase The Life Hammer for their older parents who may not have the strength to try to release doors or seat belts after an accident. The Life Hammer is so powerful that very little arm strength is necessary to break a side window to make the vehicle escapable.

I caution you to beware of knock offs. This is pertinent to your safety. Although they may be less expensive, the quality of cheaper devices is not parallel to the parts used in The Life Hammer. When it comes to your life, or the life of friends and family, its imperative you have the highest quality device possible.

Available in The Original Safety Orange and Silver Finish.

Should this happen, The Life Hammer will shatter side windows and cut through safety belts. This product is the safety device chosen by Law Enforcement, the Autogeek family, and hopefully yourself.

Durrmaid Mini Hot Water Carpet Extractor Great for Auto Detailing

The Durrmaid Mini Hot Water Extractor is a lightweight, portable carpet cleaner for mobile detailers, hobbyists, and anyone who’s serious about clean carpet. The Durrmaid Mini Hot Water Extractor offers all the features of the big commercial cleaners in a 21 lb. unit. Eliminate greasy stains in your home, vehicle, RV, and boat, or wow clients with spotless interiors.

The Durrmaid Mini Hot Water Extractor has a capacity of 2.1 gallons, making it incredibly light and user-friendly. This powerful carpet cleaner boasts an impressive 102 inches of water lift. (That’s more than many big extractors on the market!) This mini extractor heats the water to 200 degrees, which quickly breaks down greasy soil to release it from your vehicle’s carpet and upholstery.

The Durrmaid Mini Hot Water Extractor has an easy-access control panel just behind the handle, including a water level indicator light and a heater light. Once the water tank is filled, it takes about 15 minutes to heat.

A 200 micron, nylon filter bag in the recovery tank enables the Durrmaid to pick up heavy debris, like dirt, sand and even hair. The bag holds up to 5 lbs. of debris! This feature enables you to dump solid debris into the trash and pour out the liquid waste water separately. Quickly empty the filter bag with a quick turn of the lid. The contents empty through an opening in the bottom of the bag, as shown to the right.

The Durrmaid Mini Hot Water Extractor includes a see-through Lexan Carpet/Upholstery Tool. This detailing tool has stainless steel glides which travel easily over carpet with no friction. Because they’re stainless steel, they will not warp due to hot water temperatures.

Two quick-change spray tips allow you to cut the water flow to reduce drying time. The vacuum’s suction can be reduced with a thumb control, for delicate areas, like the headliner.

The ability to remove tough interior stains is what sets successful detailers apart from everyone else. Clean, spot-free carpet and seats will keep clients coming back.

  • Menzerna Ceramic Clear Coats Polishing Kits

    At the end of 2003, Mercedes Benz put into production a new scratch-resistant clear coat lacquer made up of nano-sized ceramic particles, which are baked and hardened in the paintshop oven, just like you’d bake pottery in a kiln. This process results in an extensively cross-linked, very hard paint finish that stands up better to mechanical car washes and day to day abuse. This clear coat, called CeramiClear from PPG, is the only nanotechnology clear coat used on Mercedes production lines and is approved for the repair of Mercedes and Nissans

    The Menzerna Complete Ceramic 5.5 Inch Polishing Pad Kit is a proven solution to swirls and scratches in ceramic clear coats! With Menzerna’s amazing polishing compounds and agile 5.5 inch CCS Smart Pads™, you have the ultimate ceramic-polishing kit. Use the Menzerna Complete Ceramic 5.5 Inch Polishing Pad Kit with your dual action polisher to restore a showroom new shine to your tough-as-nails vehicle.

    Menzerna Nano Polish PO 106 FA and Menzerna Super Intensive Polish PO 83 were developed by Menzerna specifically for the ceramic clear coat paint being using in Mercedes plants in Germany. Harder clear coats are becoming the trend; Corvettes also have a scratch-resistant finish. With harder paint comes greater polishing challenges, but the Menzerna Complete Ceramic 5.5 Inch Polishing Pad Kit is the prescription for rock-hard clear coats.

    The Menzerna Complete Ceramic 5.5 Inch Polishing Pad Kit includes 5.5 inch pads. With minimal pressure applied to them, many detailers find that the 5.5 inch CCS Smart Pads™ move more efficiently on the paint and polishes break down with greater ease because there is less foam between backing plate and the paint to buffer heat. This is great news for vehicles with hard, ceramic clear coats. Now you can polish scratch-resistant clear coats successfully with your user-friendly DA polisher. Even with the smaller pads, a dual action polisher is still the safest way to detail.
