Before we get started, let me take the opportunity to explain that I grew up with a parent that was kind of obsessed with any television show that had to do with crime or deadly experiences (I’m sure you know the type). As a result, by the time I moved out on my own, I had successfully been instilled with a healthy fear of just about every ‘unfortunate’ event that a person could face, however unlikely. Morbid? Absolutely. But does it keep me prepared? You bet your ass it does. That said, whenever I come across a product like the Olixar 3-in-1 Executive Emergency Pen & Stylus I don’t just get one for myself, I get one for everyone I know. Besides, who wouldn’t want a writing instrument that can break glass?

Let’s be honest, when it comes to the emergency items that we should all probably be keeping in our cars, the list can be pretty extensive. From tire maintenance tools to bug out bags, you never know what you might need to have handy. But as important as these things can be, almost none of them would immediately mean the difference between life and death if we didn’t have them—that is with the exception of a glass breaker.

Olixar 3-in-1 Executive Emergency Pen & Stylus Tool

The Olixar 3-in-1 Executive Emergency Pen & Stylus is exactly what it says it is. On one end of this sturdy, matte black tool is a pen that writes beautifully with an omnidirectional stylus for a cap. On the other end is a spring-loaded tungsten-tipped puncture point that can shatter any glass you would need it to (so mom doesn’t need to worry about what happens if you go careening into a body of water). Other noteworthy features include a pocket clip for easy storing, a safety screw top for when the glass tool is not in use, and a cross-hatched patterned grip so you can keep a firm grasp no matter what end you’re using.
