The use of a personal alarm will not take out an attacker, but it may stop them. There are several reasons people may choose to use a this type of alarm. Below is some information you may need to know when considering a self defense device.
People under the age of 18 are not permitted to use most self defense weapons and other devices. To legally help protect your children the best and most legal thing to do it provide them with some sort of self defense alarm. These alarms are available with many different functions to suite your needs.
Certain Cities, States and Countries
Some areas do not allow any sort of self defense devices such as stun guns, pepper spray and batons. When you are restricted from using non-lethal and lethal self defense devices you can most certainly arm yourself with a self defense alarm.
Don’t want to harm another?
Some people do not want to harm another person in any way even if their life is in danger. If you want to stop an attacker without harming them then an alarm is the best answer to your problem.
So, what options do you have when considering an alarm? You can choose many alarms that can make a loud alarming sound that ranes from 90 to 130 db or decibles. Of course the more db, the louder the alarm and most likely the more effective the device. You may also find that there are alarms that are triggered in different ways, include flashing strobe lights, safety wrist straps and pins. These alarms can be operated by an electronic alarm and batteries or even an arosol pressurized can.
Choose the best alarm for your situation. I suggest a personal alarm that can put out at least 120 db. This will get the attention of anyone in proximity to help and will likely turn away your attacker.
