Personal Protection

  • What gives pepper spray its pep

    Pepper spray, containing oleoresin capsicum, is a lachrymatory agent used in policing, riot control, crowd control and personal self-defense, including defense against bears and dogs.  Pepper spray causes the eyes to have temporary blindness allowing officers to restrain the subject easier and the sprayer to get away.

    Make sure to keep pepper sprays out of hot cars and watch the expiration date.

  • What is a surveillance camera?

    Surveillance cameras are video cameras used for the purpose of observing an area.  They are often connected to a recording device or IP address.  The camera may be watched by a security guard or law enforcement officer, but analysis of footage has been made easier by software that organizes the footage into a searchable database.  Most footage has been reduced by motion detectors which record only when motion is made in the camera's eye.  Surveillance cameras are simple and fairly easy to install and use in homes, offices, businesses, and everyday situations.

  • Get to know the tactical baton

    Tactical batons are shafts made of steel, mostly, have a solid tip at the outer end of the innermost, and usually in a straight configuration.  A great weapon to have by your side when you need to make impact.

    Many officers carry these batons, and for good reason.  The expandable batons collapse when not in use to the size of your forearm.  When needed, they extend to lenghts of 16 to 26 inches, give or take.  The batons break glass, if you're trapped in your vehicle, strike your assailant, block a hit, and show you mean business.

    Great idea to take hiking and camping.  Come across an alligator, bear, or any other creature, a baton might be your only means of defense.

  • Diversion safes are great!

    Diversion safes are great to have!  Not only are they easy to hide in plain sight, but they are great for any situation.  Hide a spare key in a rock, hide money in an outlet, hide jewelry in the hotel room in a hair brush.  I can keep money in the garage, in a liquid wrench hidden safe.  I have ammo in my flower pot diversion safe.  I even keep my Christmas money in a wall clock safe.  I have a diversion safe in every room in the house and outside thoughout my yard just to keep from digging holes in the yard with coffee cans!!!  My favorite hidden safe is my water bottle.  Believe it or not, I can hide my key fab, money, and watch in there while at the beach!  I have one in my car too, just in case I need a couple bucks when I leave my purse at home.  So really, diversion safes are convienent to have around whether you are hiding from intruders, roommates, or kids.

  • Tactical Pen for Self Defense

    Tactical pens have one great quality: they do not appear as weapons to other people. The man who is aggressive to you will hardly notice that you may protect yourself. This is how you get an advantage from the element of surprise if you are forced to defend yourself even with a pen.

    • Don't make yourself a victim.  Get off the phone and know your surroundings.
    • Instead of distractions in your hand, keep them free and make sure you are able to reach for your pen quickly.
    • Strike with the pen hard and fast and multiple times.  One time may not have done the job and the attacker could still come after you.
    • Hit sensitive targets.  Go for the nose, eyes, ears, throat, armpit, base of the neck, sternum, ribs, knuckles, back of the hand, groin, pit of the stomach, knee, thigh, shin, or any bare skin you can see.

     

    I know this is a hard one, but try to remember as much detail available of your assailant.  Any description will help in bringing to justice if they run.  Most important, you get to safety.  Don't hang around and wait, find a safe zone and call 911.

  • Why have a dash camera

    The dash camera, or dash cam, has become increasingly popular over the past few years mainly because of its numerous benefits. Simply put, this is a type of camera that is mounted on the dashboard of your car, and it is designed to record sounds and images while you are driving.

    The purpose of the dash cam is to carefully record every detail that takes place both on the road and inside the car, and it can be used for a variety of purposes.

    That being said, here is a deeper insight into some of the most notable reasons why you should consider buying a dash cam and installing it in your vehicle:

    1. You Have First-Hand Evidence Of A Car Accident.  This is by far the main reason why millions of car drivers have decided to invest their time and money in dash cams, Simply put, the camera records as soon as you start your car’s engine and it will provide real-time, efficient, straight-to-the-point proof in case of accident.

    If a car crash took place and your vehicle was involved, then you can prove that it was not your fault and you can send the videotape as evidence, should there be any court trial. This way, the other party will be held responsible for the accident and will be obliged to pay for your own car repairs – without the video evidence, the other driver may claim that the fault was entirely yours, as it often happens that the guilty drivers tend to put the blame on the victims.

    The dash cam is the strongest and most efficient proof you have for defending yourself, in case of a car crash. In the end, it is better to have a camera and stay on the safe side, as it can help you save a lot of time, money and trouble in the long run.

    2. A Dash Cam Is The Perfect Solution For Undisciplined Drivers.  Another important reason why you should consider buying a dash cam is because this will help you report undisciplined drivers. Every driver has had at least one bad encounter with a bad driver, whether is be road rage, under the infuence, or just plain out mean.  Not only are these reckless and irresponsible drivers very bothersome and annoying, but they might actually put the lives of other drivers and innocent passengers in danger.   These people can cause a major accident in the blink of an eye, and the dash cam will capture every single detail that takes place on the road.

    3. The Dash Cam Is Perfect For Driving Instructors And Worried Parents.  Are you worried that your child may take your car for a joyrider or picking up those that shouldn't be in the vehicle.  For instructors, this could be a great learning guide, showing what the driver is doing wrong and how to correct.

    4. You Can Prevent Fraud.  Insurance fraud is one of the most common problems of the 21st century, when it comes to vehicles and traffic. Not only does the fraud affect insurance companies on a large scale, but it actually takes its toll on drivers just trying to drive from A to B.  Unfortunately, some drivers purposely cause car accidents just to put the blame on the other party, in order to extort money from the victim. This is a widely used fraud practice nowadays, where those who commit it usually look for high-end car drivers to extort.

    In addition to extorting money from the alleged victim, who is usually innocent but has no way of proving it, these people also fake injuries in order to collect the insurance money from their insurance companies. Simply put, those who commit the fraud claim that they have suffered a whiplash injury, and they commonly claim that they suffer from back pain as well.

    5. You Might Be Amazed Of What A Dash Cam Can Capture!  Never underestimate the power of dash cams! If you look at the online videos of car accidents and unexpected phenomena, you will see that most of them have been accidentally caught on camera and very few of them have actually been recorded on purpose. In other words, a dash cam can help you capture the things that you least expect.

    The Bottom Line a dashboard camera is a great investment, especially since it is very cost-effective and has a very straightforward design that typically consists of a microphone and a fixed-lens digital camera. These simple cameras can be installed on the dashboard or the windshield of your car within seconds.  You might be surprised what the camera catches that you miss during your drive.

  • Hotel Safety

    With hotel staff, like housekeeping and bellhops, coming in and out of your room during your stay, the safety of your valuables is a huge concern. Beyond that, natural disasters or emergencies can turn a pleasant hotel stay into a nightmare. There are ways you can ensure safety upon your arrival, during your stay, and while securing personal items in your room.

    Request a non-ground level room. Ground level windows are common points of entry for burglars. By requesting a room on the second floor or higher, you'll severely limit the potential of someone breaking into your room from the outside.  Ideally, you may want to ask for a room on floors three through five. These will deter break-ins, but can still be reached by emergency personnel, like firemen. There are ways to ease your mind and guard your windows.

    Prevent your room number from being overheard. Your hotel should not announce your name and room number aloud. Doing so may alert eavesdropping thieves as to where to find your room. If the hotel desk worker says this information out loud, ask for another room.  You may feel self-conscious while doing this, but the simple fact is your room number should be private for your own personal security.

    Leave the door open if accompanied to your room by staff. Many hotels offer valet or porter service to assist getting your baggage to your room and to point its features. When accompanied to your room by staff, be sure to leave the door open to minimize any potential accusations of improper behavior.  Do a brief check of the room while the valet, porter, or bellhop is there to verify the room is empty. Check closets, the shower, and behind doors.  You can always have a hidden camera on your person, and make a video until the service has left.

    Check the room for damage and functionality. In some cases, hotel staff may have missed compromised safety features, like broken locks and deadbolts. If you notice that any of the safety features of your room are broken, request a new room.  Lock each door and turn the handle to confirm the lock actually works. This includes deadbolts and safety locks.

    Use the safety lock when inside the room. Most hotel rooms are equipped with an additional safety lock above or below the handle lock and deadbolt on your room's door. Frequently, these locks can be fastened by sliding a piece of metal on a chain into a fixture bolted to the door or door frame.  Some safety locks are installed improperly or on doors/frames that are insufficient. Try pulling the door against the safety lock. If it or the wood strains, moves, or deforms, your safety lock will only provide minimal safety.  There are also portable safety locks and alarms that can be used during your stay by logging on here.

    Keep a flashlight by your sleeping area. This is especially important when staying in areas where natural disasters, like earthquakes, are common. Natural disasters can interrupt power and leave you scrambling in the dark. Keep a small flashlight by your bed or on your nightstand so you have light in the event of an emergency.  Keeping a flashlight stun gun on your bed side keeps a light as well as a defense weapon in your hands.

    Lock valuables in your room safe when out and about. Hotels usually provide a safe in your room to protect your valuables. Combination safes that you can set yourself are much safer than key-lock safes.  Electronics, like laptops, music players, and tablets, are often targeted by thieves, making these prime candidates for room safe storage.  Jewelry and other small valuables are easy to hide in pockets and smuggle out of your room. Keep these in your room safe as well.  There are also portable hidden safes that can be used for small items that most thieves won't even know they are safes.  If your room safe appears to be poorly made or easy to break into, you may want to forego storing anything in it and use the front desk safe instead.

    Seal your luggage when not in your room. A glimpse of a designer dress or a fancy suit may tempt hotel workers. Keeping all your luggage zipped closed, especially when you're out for the day, will decrease the risk of a hotel worker taking something.  You might also want to move your luggage to a less visible location, like in a closet or under the bed, to further remove temptation.

    Utilize luggage and technology locks. The small locks used to secure luggage or technology won't deter a serious thief, but they will help prevent casual theft. Thieves often look for the easiest victim, and your locks will send a signal that you're a cautious traveler.  You can also use alarm padlocks in case a thief tries to get into your bags. These kinds of locks can be found at most hardware stores, technology stores, luggage stores, or through online retailers.

    Close your room completely when going out. Open windows or balconies will be easier for a thief to break into. Every time you leave your room, check to make sure each window, balcony, and door leading into/out of your room is closed and secure.  Even on higher floors, burglars may be able to easily hop from the balcony of a neighboring room to your own.  Secure your windows with glass breakage alarms that will create a sound to announce his presence.
