Good product DRIV3R.

Those who have doubts (like me) if it is an authentic site (because COD is only for orders more than Rs.1,000/-), there is an eBay listing also (looks like same seller by his ebay id and location). Plus, one can take benefits of eBay coupons also.

Ah !!

I guess I bought it based on your recommendation on other forum. small world indeed.

On the other hand, does anybody knows what is the current status of case. it ;s not in news anymore . I hope MSIL will investigate the cause of fire and take necessary corrective actions if found anything abnormal in car .

Hi Mukesh, it is genuine. I bought mine online. I first saw this product in OD magazine, which had a short review.

No i don't have it , but was about to order it , and then realized, will it not be better to keep a small hammer in the car instead of this .
But yes. this is a multi purpose one which has the following things .


Life saving especially designed hammer
Seat-belt cutter (The Seat Belt Cutter is recommended for single use)
Airbag puncture spear
Blow whistle
LED Torchlight
LED Distress Lights
Magnetic base holder

So might order it , still confused .




Cheers

Guys if anyone is planning to buy a plier or a swiss knife, Please have a look at leatherman multi-tool kit. Only thing they lack is torch but they r built to last and IMHO better quality than swiss-knife. I always travel with one along with Hindre rescue knife. They both are always on top of my checklist before i leave for work or for driving.

Regards

I am a bit worried about the pointed tip on the hammer. Apart from it, was wondering the convenient location to keep it for ease of access in case of emergency. If you have kept it in your car, can you kindly let us know the convenient location for storage ?

Does the product stick to any surface ? Do we have any sort of a cover for teh pointed tip, so as to not cause any harm to kids in the car

Pointed tip seems to be retractable.
Glove-box is the best place as it should not be kept loose. Apart form chances of causing potential harm to kids, it should not be accessible to kids so that they are not tempted to play around with it

This thread title should now be changed to something else. We are no longer talking about the Swift which caught fire.
Anyway, I have now purchased two pieces of ResQMe key chain (Rs. 1000 approx per piece).
Thank you Vivek for highlighting third product.
Oliveplanet.in had only two pieces left.
Edit: I don't know how to upload photos from the edit screen on Android.
