I rarely if ever leave my house without a Leatherman on my person. I'm a union electrician in the construction industry, and I know a good tool when I see it. Carrying one of the 7 that I have has become a necessity, part of my wardrobe. I carry the Wave daily to work, but I like to give them all a little time on my hip. In 2014 I, my wife, and our three young children (the youngest was only 2 months old at the time) got in an accident with our minivan. We ended up on the roof, my head almost touching the ceiling. My wife was immediately able to get her seatbelt off, and climb out her already opened window. She reached in through the broken window behind me and got our son, the youngest, out in a matter of seconds. I was not so quick on the draw. I'm a big boy, and hanging this much beef upside down, my seatbelt wasn't coming undone for anything. Believe me. When you fear for your children's safety you will move mountains, and I couldn't get that damn little red button to push. I remembered I had my Rebar on my hip. I pulled out the serrated blade and with one motion cut my seatbelt up near my head and shoulder, dropping me the rest of the way onto my noggin. In retrospect, I'm really glad I didn't slice my ear off. I crawled out my open window and tried to get the passenger sliding door open, but it wouldn't budge. I think it was locked, but at the time all I could think was to get our two girls out. We must have hit the unlock button, because I went around to the back of the van, stood in the ditch, and dropped the tailgate down. I reached in the back seat and grabbed our middle child out of her suspended car seat. Our oldest was still in the middle passenger side seat, but I couldn't get to her very easily. So, I dropped the backseat right out of the van. (This was a Dodge Caravan, with those little black levers that you lift to remove the back bench seat.) I wallowed back in next to my oldest to free her. Up to this point our girls hadn't really said much of anything. I think they were just wondering why they were upside down in their car seats. My oldest looked at me and said "daddy, get me out.", which I did. My wife ended up getting 16 stiches in her knee, and I had a couple pieces of glass in mine that I removed while the adrenaline was still pumping. That was it, a big scar on my wife's knee, and 3 little ones on mine to remind me of our three children, and to drive more carefully. Not so much as a red mark on our children, nothing. With all the broken glass I couldn't believe they made it out unscathed. I had my first ever smart phone in my chest pocket, and it had fallen out the window when we rolled. My father in law found it hiding under the roof when they flipped our van back up on it's wheels. The screen was badly cracked, and little pieces were falling out of it, but it still worked. I used that phone for two weeks, until I could get an exact replacement. Like I mentioned earlier, I know a good tool when I see it. That's why we also bought another Caravan. I figured "how much worse could it have been? This thing did pretty well". My Rebar didn't save my life, but I don't like thinking about how much longer my kids and I would have hung there upside down had I not had it with me. Leatherman makes great tools, American made tools, and their customer service in my experience is exemplary. Thank you Leatherman, and thank you to all of your hard working employees that build these great, great tools.
