“A serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situation requiring immediate action.” This is the dictionary definition of an emergency. Such situations can cause panic because they are unexpected. But that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for the worst. We know that car crashes happen, and that criminals walk among us. PROTEKKT is an all-in-one emergency device that should keep you safe in most situations. This multi-functional gadget could help you break free from a burning vehicle and fight off attackers. It could just save your life.

– Sharp steel spikes can be used for self-defense or to smash windows

– 120-decibel siren should deter attackers and attract help

– Compact gadget also has a built-in flashlight and a seatbelt cutter

Save Your Life

Have you ever had one of those dreams where something terrible happens, and you’re powerless? You end up waking up in the middle of the night, bathed in sweat. These nightmares are pretty bad, but they’re nothing compared with facing real-life fear.

You might be able to sleep a little easier with PROTEKKT by your side. This powerful 7-in-1 device can save your life in numerous situations. Being attacked? Draw the spikes. Stuck in a burning car? Cut the seatbelt. The list goes on.

What’s more, this emergency multi-tool has been designed by a veteran first-responder. So yeah, this guy knows what he’s doing.

Everyday Emergency Gadget

We cover many EDC (everyday carry) products here at the Gadget Flow. While wallets and keychains are nice, they won’t be of much use when your car is burning.

In contrast, PROTEKKT is covered in life-saving features. Firstly, the device has two ultra-hard sharpened steel tips. You can use them to punch through windows, while the finger guard protects your hand. Alternatively, you can use the metal points for self defense. Any attacker will suffer significant pain when these spikes hit their target.

If that wasn’t enough to deter your assailant, you can deploy the 120-decibel siren. For reference, that’s as loud as a thunder clap. Even when you are not under attack, this alarm could be used to summon assistance.

The device also glows in the dark, and the built-in flashlight helps you find your way.

Car Crash

While PROTEKKT is just about small enough to carry on your belt, it’s probably best kept in your car.

Why? Well for starters, it has a seat belt cutter. If the worst should happen, you can cut yourself free. You can then smash the side window using the spikes and make your escape. PROTEKKT actually comes with a neat storage clip for your car.

While no emergency device can cover every situation, PROTEKKT comes pretty close. We would definitely feel safer carrying one of these!

Future Designs

The current design is just a little too big for most pockets — a mini version could be useful.
