Numerical escape criteria is presented for the Caledonian Symmetric Four-Body problem (CSFBP). The numerical experiments show that escapes can be detected very early with the help of the method. Integrating a huge amount of orbits of the symmetric four-body system we found that for the equal mass case the double binary escape, and in the planetary case the single bodies escape are the most likely outcome of the disintegration of the system.
