FAQ & Warranty Information

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need OWL® ? 

Everyone should have an escape tool , window breaker and seat belt cutter readily available in their vehicle in case of an emergency situation. Your escape tool should be within the recommended reach of 8 to 12 inches from you.  OWL® is flat and credit card size so it is readily available to reach in a panic situation. It works differently than hammers or spring loaded devices. It works on sound, there is no pounding, no need for strength. It is more powerful than the spring devices and because it has no moving parts OWL ® cannot   malfunction.  OWL ® shatters the glass  outward, away from your face. Your fingers do not  touch the glass. OWL® has a recessed blade that does not need a cover, it is handy for quick use in slicing off your jammed seat belt. Since it did not come built into your car, OWL® is the best gift you can give to yourself and everyone you love.

How do I use OWL® ?

We have an instructional video to view here: 


We recommend you keep OWL® on your visor or adhered to your cell phone. OWL's®  integrated razor blade cuts through nylon safety belts easily. To break window, place the top of OWL® card , with the point towards glass, in the upper window channel, as far as it goes, with two fingers, flick the bottom of the card towards you and release. The carbide metal  tip will hit the glass and break glass outward. Push the broken window out and escape to safety. 

Will OWL® fit in the window channel of my car?

OWL ® has a beveled edge and fits right in the top edge or side edge.  It has been tested on all types of cars , imported and domestic.  OWL® has been tested by Bureau Veritas.  

What if my side window is open a bit, will OWL® still work?

Use the same way as if it were placed in top of window channel. Insert  OWL® in the side channel of your window, pull back and release. We provide several videos on this site and our utube channel demonstrating both ways. 

Does OWL® work on wind shields?

No. OWL® is designed to shatter  tempered safety glass windows.

Does OWL® work on laminated glass? 

There are no escape tools on the market that can claim they break through laminated glass and have proof to support  the claim. That's because Lam glass has plastic in between two sheets of glass. OWL® shatters tempered and tinted glass windows.  We provide videos and 3rd party testing to demonstrate OWL®'s ability to shatter windows. To find out what type of window glass your car has look for the sticker on the lower corner of the window.

Can OWL ® be used more than one time?

Yes, OWL® is built to be used more than one time, it is manufactured with superior grade materials and can be used over and over. OWL® precision stainless steel blade belt cutter can also be used multiple times. 

If OWL® has no springs, how does it work?

 OWL® does not have springs or any moving parts. The flat card acts as one big spring and the stainless steel metal disc with carbide  tip breaks the glass outward with the snap of your finger. 

What is the OWL® Holder made of?

The holder is made of flexible silicone with 3M adhesive backing.  We recommend that you leave about a half inch of space at the bottom of the silicone holder, this will make it easy to grab and pull out of holder. Make sure sticky strip and your visor surface are clean (no greasy film)  for best stick results.

The holder has 2 small slices on the upper sides is it supposed to? 

Yes, this is intentional. There are two small slices on both sides of the silicone holder, this loosens the air tight seal a bit for easy removal, yet it is still tight enough to keep OWL®  secure on your visor.

Can OWL® break windows from outside the car?

Yes. OWL® breaks tempered glass. It does work on outside of window by holding the card up to the window and striking the card, (point side facing glass) , the tungsten carbide tip will shatter the glass.
