Pepper Baton Effective Self Defense Weapon

Share

A pepper spray baton incorporates two highly effective self defense weapons in one. The baton is actually a kubotan key-chain which is highly accessible, extremely durable and effective as a close quarter self defense weapon.

A kubotan is commonly used to stabilize the closed fist, to apply pressure to sensitive body parts or to gain leverage against an attacker. The kubotan can be used to execute easy yet highly effective strikes such as the eye gouge, groin strike or nose strike.

The pepper baton contains police grade 10% mace pepper spray. Self defense pepper batons provide discrete yet powerful and legal personal security. When actuated, the baton releases a cone-shaped cloud of pepper spray from the end opposite the key ring. The design makes it easy to hold and aim directly at an attacker. The pepper spray baton contains approximately six short bursts with an effective range up to 5 feet.

These refillable batons are machined from heavy aluminum, they are virtually indestructible. Attach your keys to the solid brass key ring to ensure the pepper baton is with you if needed. This is a top quality, discrete self defense weapon that you can take virtually anywhere.

Top 10 Tips for a Safe Home

Share
  1. Lock doors and windows.
  2. Lock all doors at night and every time you leave the house. Make sure every window and sliding doors have a working lock or securely pinned. Secure windows and sliding doors with secondary blocking devices (i.e. a door jammer). Use alarms or anti-lift devices to prevent windows and glass from being lifted out.

  3. Crime-proof outside areas.
  4. Lighting is one of the most cost-effective deterrents to burglary. Keep yard, porch, garage doors, pathways and entrances well-lit at night. Consider motion detecting lights which turn on automatically as someone approaches. Trim plants and shrubs that could serve as hiding places for criminals. Cut back tree limbs that could help thieves climb into windows. Consider light timers for exterior lighting to establish a routine and appearance of occupancy.

  5. Get to know your neighbors.
  6. Get to know your neighbors on each side of your home and across the street. Invite them into your home, communicate often, and establish trust. Ask neighbors to pick up mail and park in your driveway to give the appearance of occupancy while on vacation. Get to know each others schedules so you can spot an unusual pattern.

  7. Consider an alarm.
  8. Display alarm company signs and decals on the windows and lawn; burglars will usually bypass a property with visible alarm signs. Don’t write your alarm pass-code on or near the alarm keypad. Alarms systems monitor for fire as well as burglary. Learn how to use your system properly.

  9. Protect yourself with lock and key
  10. Don’t hide keys. Leave a key with a trusted family member, friend or neighbor. Keep a list of everyone you give a copy of your keys to. Consider keys with protection against unauthorized duplication. All entryways should have a sturdy deadbolt lock installed into the frame of the door. Use high quality Grade 1 or 2 locks with a bolt that extends at least one inch to resist prying open or forceful entry. Hardened steel inserts prevents bolts from being sawed off.

  11. Protect your home when traveling.
  12. Activate the alarm system (if you have one). Inform a trusted neighbor of your travel plans and ask them to collect mail and watch your home while away. Consider using automatic timers to switch interior lights on and off at preset times. Indoor lighting gives the impression of occupancy. For extended absences, consider hiring a trusted house sitter. Don’t advertise your absence. Don’t post messages on Facebook or social media. Never leave a message on your answering machine that tells thieves you are away.

  13. Protect your valuables.
  14. Gate latches, garage doors, and shed doors are all locked with high-security, laminated padlocks. Grills, bicycles and other valuables left out in the open, should be hidden from view with a tarp and securely locked to a stationary point. Keep a home inventory of valuables including serial numbers, pictures, and sale receipts. Keep a complete copy some-where out of the house.

  15. Teach home safety to your kids.
  16. Show them how to use the door and window locks, and the alarm system. Never let them allow anyone into your home without asking your permission. Never let a caller at the door or on the phone know that they’re alone. Teach them to say “Mom can’t come to the phone or door right now.” Be sure they carry a house key with them in a safe place. Don’t leave it under a mat or on a ledge outside a house. Be sure they know how to call 9-1-1, or the operator.

  17. Have and emergency plan.
  18. Have important phone numbers, including police and fire departments, by the phone. Establish a meeting place for family members ; one place near your home and one outside of the neighborhood. If something looks questionable – a slit screen, a broken window, or an open door – don’t go in. Call the police. If you think you hear someone breaking in, leave safely if you can, then call the police. If you can’t leave, lock yourself in a room with a phone and call the police.

  19. Take a stand!
  20. Join a Neighborhood Watch group. If one doesn’t exist, you can start one with help from local law enforcement. Work with neighbors and local government to organize community clean-ups. The cleaner your neighborhood, the less attractive it is to crime. Join neighbors, police, school officials, and civic groups in identifying, discussing, and solving troubling conditions in your community.

Stun Batons for Dog Attack Prevention

Share

I’m a dog lover! I have a Golden and Yellow Lab, both of which are considered family members. That said, my dogs can be quite aggressive and territorial toward strangers. As a responsible owner I make sure to keep my dogs restrained to ensure their safety as well as the safety of others. Unfortunately, some owners are not responsible and allow their dogs run the streets and setting the stage for bites and attacks.

The most recent US survey places the number of dogs in the United States at a staggering 74.8 million. (American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA) 2007-2008 National Pet Owners Survey.) Another survey of dog bites, conducted by CDC researchers and based on data collected during 2001-2003, concluded that dogs bite 4.5 million Americans per year (1.5% of the entire population). Sacks JJ, Kresnow M. Dog bites: still a problem? Injury Prevention 2008 Oct;14(5):296-301. Almost 800,000 bites per year — one out of every 6 — are serious enough to require medical attention. (Weiss HB, Friedman D, Coben JH. Incidence of dog bite injuries treated in emergency departments. JAMA 1998;279:51-53.)

One of the safest and most humane way to protect yourself from aggressive dog attacks is to carry and utilize a non-lethal self defense weapon such as a mini stun baton. Stun guns and batons use high voltage, low amperage electricity and are excellent at deterring and even stopping dog attacks. Simply firing the stun baton and emitting the loud “crackling” sound is usually enough to back a dog down. If it doesn’t, touching the animal with the stun baton will have them “tucking” the tail and running. Stun batons do not cause any long term or serious injuries to the animals.

A mini stun baton is affordable, effective, easy to operate and packed with great features. This mini stun baton is ultra powerful, sporting the equivalent of 4.5 million volts of jaw dropping electricity. These are rechargeable stun batons, which means you can re-charge the batteries by simply plugging it into a standard wall outlet. A wrist strap and safety pull pin keep the mini stun gun from being used if the pin is pulled out. A powerful built in LED flashlight will keep you out of the dark. The mini stun baton itself is only 9.5 inches long, not too big or bulky, but enough length to keep you out of harms way. Lastly, if it breaks we replace it free of charge!

Postal workers, delivery drivers, meter readers, walkers, bikers and joggers; this is a must have product that will increase peace of mind while providing you the safety you need.

Non Lethal Self Defense for Personal Security and Peace Of Mind

Share

How much is your well being and peace of mind worth? That’s the question I posed to a large group during a presentation on self defense and personal security. The overwhelming response was that their well being and peace of mind were “priceless”. With that being said most were ill prepared with regards to their safety situation.

Rape, abductions, assaults, and home invasions are just a handful of the crimes which are most prevalent in our society. A women is raped somewhere in the United States every 2 minutes, a kidnapping or abduction occurs every 23 minutes, a aggravated assault every 35 seconds and over 8000 home invasion burglaries per day in North America.

Your number one priority needs to be your safety and the security of your home and family. After breathing, eating and drinking there is no more vital need than security. It is time to take a more proactive approach protecting yourself, home and family. By doing so you will be on your way to that “priceless” and elusive peace of mind.

Start with a home security survey. Most police departments will come out and conduct a home security survey free of charge. The goal is to identify areas in and around your home that are vulnerable to crime. You can download our home security survey here.

Neighborhood Watch is based on this concept of cooperation, and nationwide statistics prove that it works. When citizens take positive steps to secure their own property and neighbors learn how to report suspicious activity around their homes, burglary and other related crimes decrease dramatically.

PEPPER SPRAY: 10 MOST COMMON EFFECTS

Recently with the influx of Occupy Protests, there has been an increase in law enforcement usage of Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) or Pepper Spray. Over the past few weeks, nearly every media outlet in the country from Fox News to the New York Times has shed light on pepper spray deployment to disperse protestors and crowds. In fact, OC sprays commonly referred to as mace, personal safety sprays and pepper spray have become an internet meme and with that, several questions, myths and misinformation have circulated. Many wonder how dangerous is pepper spray and what are the most common effects.

In July 2008, the Force Science Research Center released the results of a study ranking the “risks of injury from 5 major force options” available to law enforcement officers. The study, conducted by the Calgary Police Service and Canadian Police Research Center, focused on the following most common force options:

  • Empty-hand control techniques
  • Baton
  • OC spray (pepper spray)
  • Conducted energy weapons (Tasers)
  • Lateral vascular neck restraint

OC spray or pepper spray “produced the lowest rate of injury”. In fact, “more than 80% of the sprayed subjects sustained no injury whatever and no injuries were fatal or even resulted in hospitalization”. Additional information can be found at www.Force ScienceNews.com.

Having addressed the safety aspects of pepper spray above, here are the ten (10) most common effects one may experience after having been contaminated by OC sprays:

  • Swelling of Mucous Membranes of Eyes, Nose & Throat
  • Nasal & Sinus Discharge
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Drying of the Eyes
  • Involuntary Eye Closure
  • Painful Burning of the Skin
  • Analgesic Effect
  • Hyperventilation & Potential Increase in Blood Pressure
  • Psychological Effects: Fear, Anxiety & Panic

The majority of the above are self explanatory. The biggest advantage pepper spray provides the user, whether law enforcement or civilian, is the involuntary eye closure. Even if the subject cannot feel pain due to drugs, alcohol or being emotionally disturbed, the inflammatory effects of pepper spray cause the eyes to close temporarily when the ocular area is saturated. Points 8 through 10 do require further explanation. Capsaicin, one of the five (5) major capsaicionids which provides the active ingredient within pepper spray, is also commonly used in sports creams to temporarily relieve, reduce or numb muscle pain. In some cases, pepper spray will also eventually numb the skin causing the effects to subside. This does not mean the individual is fully decontaminated, which is why some re-experience the effects several hours later. Full decontamination occurs after the capsaicinoids are removed from the eyes, pores and outer skin.

Moving on to points 9 & 10, the effects of pepper spray are often quite intense which can cause fear of the unknown, anxiety and panic to take place. These psychological effects can cause hyperventilation and a temporary increase in blood pressure.

It is important to note that all of the ten (10) effects listed above are temporary. Police and civilians alike have depended on pepper sprays for over twenty-years because they provide protection at a safe distance and are one of the safest and most reliable force options available. For more information, you may wish to review the three Pepper Spray “Research in Briefs” released by the National Institute of Justice.

Pepper spray or mace for rape prevention

Share

Pepper spray or mace for rape prevention? Everyone, male or female; young or old should arm themselves with a self defense product like pepper spray or mace. Why? Because it has the potential to save lives if used properly.

Just last week a young women in our hometown was forcibly raped by an attacker as she tried to enter her home. This twenty six year old women returned home at 3:00 a.m. As she neared her front door she noticed a man approaching. While attempting to get into her apartment the attacker asked if he could use the telephone and have a glass of water. She said no and attempted to close the front door. That’s when he overpowered her forcing his way into the apartment. Once inside he raped the women at knife point.

I can’t help but think the outcome could have been different had the victim possessed pepper spray in her hand and used it. Most of us feel like our homes and neighborhoods are safe. Others have the “it can’t happen to me” syndrome. The truth is it can happen to any of us. Although, there are no guarantee’s you can drastically increase your odds buy getting serious about your personal security situation.

Here are a few things you can do to take control of your personal safety.

  • Awareness: The most important first line of defense is your awareness. The awareness of your surroundings, awareness of yourself and the potential attacker’s strategy could is the self defense that could prevent crime. Criminals prey on individuals who appear to be unaware or occupied. By paying close attention to your surroundings and by projecting yourself as a strong, confident figure will prevent many altercations which are commonplace on the street.
  • Use your sixth sense. You know that feeling you get in your stomach when something doesn’t seem right? Trust your intuition which is a powerful subconscious gift. Learn to become more in-touch with your sixth sense.
  • Self-defense training. Consider Krav Maga or some type of real world self defense training. Techniques should focus on simple easy to execute but effective strikes and kicks.
  • You CAN and SHOULD defend yourself in a dangerous situation. Many worry that by fighting back against and attacker it will cause the situation to escalate and increase your chances of being hurt or killed, but statistics clearly show that your odds of survival are far greater if you do fight back. Attack the eyes and the groin area. Surprise him with a eye gauge or a kick to the groin.
  • Carry pepper spray and be prepared to use it. Pepper spray or Mace can be an extremely effective self defense weapon if used properly. First and foremost it must be accessible. It does absolutely no good at the bottom of the purse when needed. Think about the times when you are most vulnerable to attack (leaving or arriving at home, walking to your car, leaving work, the mall parking lot, the gym, jogging, biking are all good examples) and make sure your pepper spray is accessible and ready.

    Take time to practice with your pepper spray. Learn the spray pattern, the effective range, and the safety device. A few minutes in your back yard is all that’s needed.
