Pros: Weight, Overall Quality
Must-have tool, if you take your vehicle safety seriously
I had been looking at seat belt cutters for a while, and had bought two other brands, but was not satisfied that i could find and use them readily in an actual emergency. When I noticed that Columbia River had brought out their own version, I was anxious to try it, as I have many of their products and have never been less than totally satisfied. I picked up one in a local store, and was totally happy with it - it does the job (tested on a scrap length of seat belt), and most importantly it clips over the belt and rides right on top of the buckle, so I always know exactly where it is. I have not tested the window breaker, but expect it will work as it is a very simple concept. The little LED flashlight built in may come in useful if a wreck occurred after dark on a country road, or a wrecked vehicle got submerged, and knowing exactly where to find it at all times, no matter how disoriented I might be or how much all the other contents of the vehicle were shaken up, might be a life saver. I decided I needed one for both front seats in each of my vehicles, and shopped around on the Internet for the best deal. KnifeCenter had a great price, and they had the product in stock (many other sites advertised it, but were out of stock). There were no problems with ordering or shipping, and I now feel safer when driving and wearing a seat belt.
