Vehicle safety escape apparatus

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #6219890.

Method and apparatus for escaping from a vehicle include providing safety escape apparatus including a safety belt having a buckle on a free portion of the belt, the buckle having an exposed edge, and the free portion being long enough to allow the exposed edge of the buckle to be placed in contact with a window of the vehicle. A tip harder than glass is affixed to the exposed edge of the buckle so as to extend outwardly therefrom. Escape is performed by disengaging the seat belt from a safety engaged position around an occupant, gripping the buckle with the tip extending outwardly, and forcibly driving the tip into an adjacent window to break the window and allow egress through the window.
