G.P. – Shatter a Car Window with a Sparkplug in an Emergency

HJL Adds: Although this works, who wants to carry around small pieces of sharp ceramic in your pocket? As an EMT, this was one of the first extraction tricks we were taught. You really don’t want broken glass flying everywhere when you break the window, especially if your patient has open wounds that you need to deal with or has their face close to the window. You can simply take a folded pocket knife (or Gerber, Leatherman, etc cetera) and holding it your fist, lay it on the window so only a corner of it touches the window in a corner of the window itself. Then lean into it with your body weight, using your other hand to help apply pressure to the point contacting the window. You will slightly flex the safety glass at the corner and the window will magically disappear from in front of you with all the shards falling directly down. Note: This only works on safety glass (side windows) not on laminated glass like front windshields.
