I realize things have gotten a bit more hostage’y in the last several years. With that said, I am not sure there is quite the need for a hostage escape tool just yet. But there is one on the market. Perfect for the guy or gal who plans for everything (while watching MacGyver on TV). Who am I kidding… I want one!
The Readymade Hostage Escape Survival Credit Card ($13) is made in the US of stainless steel and has the following tools baked in –
- Torsion wrench (for lock picking)
- Traditional lock picks
- Padlock bypass pick
- Zip tie shim
- Handcuff shim
