Safety And Security Kits For Self-defense

By Teresa Bernard

Safety and security kits consist of a collection of the most popular self-defense tools available which are designed to give you the level best in non-lethal protection. These survival kits can give you and your loved ones the power to protect yourselves if you are ever threatened with bodily harm or loss of property.

If you happen to live in an area where weapons such knives and guns are illegal or restricted, you can take advantage of the protection offered by the self-defense devices included in security kits. Self-defense kits will afford you the capability to seize control of a dangerous situation in a breaking and entering or personal assault. Having self-defense devices on hand can give you the confidence and security needed to handle precarious situations if they do arise.

There are numerous self-defense kits available on the market, which are composed of a number of staple non-lethal self-defense tools, such as pepper sprays, stun guns, and personal alarms. You may choose from many types of kits, including the formidable, relatively heavy-duty McKinley Survival Kit for your car or home, and the portable “SafeFamilyLife” Personal Safety Kit, which is developed for use by women.

Both of these safety and security kits include OC pepper spray which you can take with you in your purse, backpack, or on your person. You use pepper spray to spray a stream or mist of nontoxic material called Oleoresin Capsicum commonly found in hot pepper plants. Pepper spray will irritate the lungs, eyes, and skin of any attacker at the press of a button. When the concentrated, highly potent spray comes into contact with the skin or mucous membrane of an attacker, it will render your assailant debilitated by pain and irritation in the lungs, nasal passages, and eyes. Another type is the pepper spray home fogger which is built as the heavy-duty version of the personal pepper spray canister. A fogger will emit a fine mist of the same caustic chemicals. An advantage of a pepper spray fogger is that it will debilitate larger groups of intruders who may try to overpower you inside your home or office. Because it releases a layer of fog that quickly spreads through out the area you don’t have to be as accurate in your aim. The kit also comes with a stun device that sends a 200,000-volt jolt of electricity, enough to disable even the largest of attackers in an instant by short-circuiting his nervous system for a short period of time. The McKinley Survival and the “SafeFamilyLife” kits both come with personal alarms, safety devices which emit a shrill, piercing sound at loud volume to help draw attention and deter further attack.

The McKinley kit also comes with safety guides, which are pieces of product-related literature containing vital information that can help you thwart or prevent attack in many situations. The “SafeFamilyLife” kit is also bundled with a number of safety guides. These guides provide you with information on how to handle yourself in potentially dangerous situations. The knowledge you receive from these guides will enhance your use of the safety kits by instructing you in the proper use of these tools.

Having a self-defense security kit on hand is a wise thing to do for yourself and your family during these unsafe times. According to FBI reports crime occurs frequently in the United States. Ensure that you have the ability to protect yourself, your family, and your belongings by stacking the odds in your favor with a safety kit.
