Self Defense - Personal Alarms

Women's self defense products are usually thought of as pepper sprays, stun guns and pocket sticks. I'd strongly advise another layer of self defense - personal alarms.

Personal alarms create a loud alert and most include strobing lights. Attackers don't want to be seen or noticed. It only makes sense that when a woman who may be in imminent danger triggers a 130 decibel alarm with strobe lights, the assailant is going to lose interest quickly and move on to a victim that isn't going to make so much noise or put up a struggle.

Most personal alarms a between $10 - $15 and operate by a switch or a pull chain which causes the alarm to stay on until the owner replaces the pin back into the unit.

Personal alarms have long been a mainstay in personal defense products - buy one. See you soon!
