break window during emergency
 
Can tinted window still be broken with an emergency hammer?

Most folks can't break a regular window in an emergency situation with an emergency hammer, so...it depends.

Id say yes.... the tint will just hold the glass in one piece.

Yes, if that pesky seat belt doesn't trap you first. :eek:

Seriously tho- You'll smash right through the tint no prob if you needed to.

better check all of your tinted windows with a properly calibrated SAE ID-10-T hammer just to make sure. you don't want it to be a fluke

i wouldnt use a emergency hammer because you have a limited amount of room to swing. what i do have is a glass breaker (pressed/punch style) and it has a blade to cut the seat belt

knowing me though when the time comes i wont remember about it at all, happens all the time with me not remembering to do or grab something

This thread has some potential.

I have an ASP baton with the window breaker tip and a rescue knife in my center console.

Not sure. You'd better try it out and let us know.

Might just want to look at using explosive bolts instead........ just in case.

I heard, the darker the tint the harder it is to brake.

I heard, the smaller the rotors the harder it is to break.
