The Escape Belt means easy underwater release

Escapebelt 1

The idea of being unable to release your seatbelt in car that’s landed in the water is all too real. In that kind of emergency, when fear and panic so quickly set in, the Escape Belt is a super-useful device to have.

Developed by the Dutch company Fijen TMLS, this life-saving device attaches to a car’s existing seat belt buckle (the part with the button, that the belt’s tongue plugs into) and incorporates a small salt pill. When water rushes into the car and hits the belt, the pill dissolves, releasing the belt, allowing the driver or passenger to get to safety.

No worries about spilled liquid triggering the salt pill. It’s secure. Just remember to replace the pill every couple of years. This is an affordable must-have for car owners, priced at just €29.95 (US$38.84).
