Occasionally it’s the simplest things that become the most important. Consider a five-dollar device that could be responsible for saving your life. This may be something of which you’re not presently aware but once you find out you’re going to want to get one (or more). At least that’s the hope.
There’s often a huge gap between ‘knowing’ and ‘doing’. Usually procrastination is to blame and, unfortunately, it’s an all too common excuse for inaction. But there’s a remedy for this and it’s fairly simple. You merely need to make the determination to Do It Now. Hopefully, what you’re about to read will spur you into action.
Each year thousands of motorists have automobile accidents that leave them trapped in their cars. Sometimes their seat belts won’t release or the victim can’t reach the operating mechanism. This same scenario can happen to airplane pilots. In this situation a seat belt cutter is worth many times its weight in gold. It could mean the difference between being helplessly trapped in a burning vehicle or getting out to safety. It sounds like a no-brainer, right?
Every car on the road should contain one of these belt-cutting knives and, better yet, two. They can be easily attached to the seatbelt harness within easy reach. In the event of an emergency it’s there if you need it. This is some very cheap insurance.
So why doesn’t every car have one installed? Ignorance could be the reason – not knowing such a device is so readily available. That excuse will no longer work for you, however, so all that’s left is procrastination.
These emergency devices are easy to obtain and are inexpensive to buy. They take only minutes to install and are fast and easy to use if the time ever comes that you need it. But they only work if you have one in place before the accident occurs. Hopefully, you’ll never find occasion to use it.
Some tools are best at doing certain jobs. Oyster knives, for example, are perfectly designed to open a tough old oyster but not that handy at freeing a victim trapped in a car crash. If you happen to be a shellfish fancier chances are you already have an oyster knife or two in your knife drawer. How many seatbelt knives do you have in your car?
Think about it (but not for too long) and then either go online and find one you can order or go to your local automotive or hardware store and buy one. Remember, it’s better to have one and not need it than to need one and not have it! Do It Now!
