  • We saw it on Reddit. If you get trapped in a burning car, you can smash the window with a headrest. Not sure why you wouldn't just open the door though.

    Hitting the glass in the corners where it is less flexible will break it easier.

    You did it wrong supposed to put it just under the rubber seal where the lock and where the window comes up and hit it down in the glass weakens it everyone is doing this shit wrong

    You wasted a lot of time to show your ignorance to the correct way to use the headrest to break the window. It's very easy if you had done it correctly.

    Got in a wreck where the dude landed his car sideways and had to push out the front windshield by hand to get out. He was able to do it but cut his hand to fuck all. We were fine on my end just hand to power crank out my door with both of my legs. The frame bent and sealed me in. Well obviously not that well bent the door wide open.

    Pulling a head rest out can be very difficult, every headrest release button is different so this is a bad idea, I will come up with an Idea and put it up my channel

    In case of a submerged car or the handle is hot hit the corner of the glass it takes less effort but the reddit was probably created by someone who wanted people to break car windows just to test it

    Request: I've heard the best way to break a window is with the headrest, but *instead of hitting a prong against the window*, you wedge a prong between the glass and the door panel, then pry it downward. In theory this shatters the window from the edge with the edge requiring significantly less force to fracture.
