With over 1.1 million violent crimes occurring in the United States in last year alone, there has been a rise in the need for personal protection. While law enforcement may be just a phone call away, unfortunately, they may arrive too late. This is why more and more people are taking their safety into their own hands.
Your'e most likely familiar with mace and tasers- but as these products become well-known to the public, they become well-known to criminals as well- which is why we have compiled a collection of products that may not be under a potential attackers radar yet. Worried about going overboard with a gun or knife? These products are also non-lethal.
Handcuff Escape Keys
These are so sneaky they have been banned from Amazon- but we have them here. My personal favorite is the ASR Tactical Boot Lace Handcuff Key, as it is almost impossible to notice. The Boot Lace Handcuff Key is easily attached to the end of your shoelace, and fits all standard shoelaces. It also comes with a black rubber cover for extra secrecy. Even in handcuffs, it is easy to access. This is great for any late night runs or walks. Don't usually wear shoes with laces? We also have a handcuff escape key that attaches to zippers discretely.
Self Defense Key Chain Stinger
More discrete than mace or a taser, this blends into your key chain and comes with a built in light. With an ergonomic grip, it allows your to hold it in one hand and punch your attacker with it.
7 in 1 Survival Whistle
This has you covered for not only alerting others you need help, but also for lighting up dark spaces with the flashlight, and a compass and signal mirror in case you escape from your attacker in an unknown area. The compass is also useful for figuring out what direction your'e going if you're trapped in a car. It also comes with a storage compartment- which could be used for a handcuff escape key.
While this list was certainly not exhaustive, I hope I provided you with some products to keep you safe, offer you peace of mind, and help you to expect the unexpected.
