In an unpredictable world, where a missed turn or a sudden weather change can leave you vulnerable to an extreme emergency, a wise traveler always leaves home prepared for worst-case situations. U.S. Department of Transportation statistics, for example, show vehicle entrapment incidents are on the rise. No one thinks it will happen to them—until it does, when heavy rains suddenly flood roads and videos of submerged vehicles fill social media and newscasts. The best way to prepare for the unknown is to carry a tool built to deal with extremes.
Military-grade aluminum designed to withstand the roughest emergency conditions. Drop-resistant up to 1 meter (3.3 feet).

Light source: CREE XP-E2 LED.
Light output: 135 lumens (high), 50 lumens (low).
Run time: 4 hours (high), 20 hours (low), 28 hours (SOS).
Beam distance: 150m/492ft (high), 90m/295ft (low).
Peak beam intensity: 6,000 candela.
Inside the tail cap is a tungsten steel puncture point engineered to easily break any tempered car window. On the exterior is a second window punch constructed with a hardened, blunt-force steel ball.
Inside the handle and recessed for safe handling, the blade is manufactured with hard SK2 high-carbon steel, capable of slicing through a seatbelt with minimal resistance.
To optimize response time, a high-strength mount is included, equipped with an industrial-grade adhesive. This allows you to position your tool anywhere you choose within your vehicle’s interior.
The higher the brightness, the faster the power runs out. For lifesaving flashlights, duration of light is more important than brightness. autoXscape can run 20 hours in low mode and 28 hours in SOS mode, offering ample time to wait for rescue. With replacement AAA batteries, your flashlight can be restored at any time to full capacity.
An emergency tool should always be close at hand, consistently positioned in a known location and ready for immediate access. The autoXscape comes equipped with a high-strength bracket backed by an industrial adhesive strip, allowing it to be placed wherever is most convenient for you.
The tail cap with a blunt-force steel ball is used to cover the sharper tungsten steel punch for safety in daily use. When you don’t need to cut the seatbelt and the situation is urgent, you can use the outside window punch to break the corners of the window.
In an emergency where your seatbelt buckle is stuck, you can detach and toss the cap, cut the seatbelt with the cutter and break the glass with the inside window punch. There is no need to worry whether you can break the window if you lose the cap after cutting the seatbelt.
Blinking lights often catch a first responder’s attention quicker than a continuous beam. In emergency mode, the autoXscape automatically flashes the universal SOS distress signal so you don’t need to hearken back to Boy Scout training—if indeed you have had this training at all—to indicate to rescuers where help is needed.

Remove the tool’s tail cap to expose the cutter. Pull the seatbelt taut with one hand. Hold it tightly. With the other hand, firmly grip the tool and press the blade’s edge (recessed in its protective housing) against the nearer edge of the seatbelt. With the seatbelt still taut, forcibly pull the blade across the belt at a diagonal angle, away from you.
While the exterior smash point (at the tip of the tail cap) is very effective, the stronger of two glass-breakers is the stout point inside the tool’s tail cap. Firmly grasp the tool and aim the point at a corner (not the center) of a side or rear window. Forcibly strike the window’s corner, repeatedly if necessary, until it breaks.
Three AAA batteries are included.
With user safety in mind, we prioritized long battery life over maximum lumens. Estimated runtime at 50 lumens: 20 hours. At 135 lumens: 4 hours 15 minutes.
Yes, to ensure quick access to the autoXscape, we include a high-strength mount that can be attached to your vehicle’s interior with screws and/or a 3M adhesive pad.
Yes. The unit is ANSI-certified IPX7. The light can be submerged in one meter of water for 30 minutes. The battery cartridge is constructed out of high-strength polycarbonate. The handle grip uses textured rubber knurling suitable for all-weather use.
It flashes the universal distress signal—3 short flashes, 3 long, 3 short.
Yes, just hold the button for one second while in any mode to turn the flashlight off.
Yes, it has been fully tested and meets the ANSI FL-1 standards, which include light output, runtime, peak beam intensity, beam distance, water resistance, and impact resistance.
