  • Be Safe Not Sorry

    Once we strip away all the class, cultural and societal trappings of everyday life, basic human needs define us all.  Philosophers have batted that one around for millennium.  But it can all be boiled down into:

    -        Physiological needs, basic survival (food and water)

    -        Safety and Security (personal safety for self and family)

    -        Love and Belonging, Social Acceptance, Esteem and Self Actualization

    Note after basic survival, safety and security is our second most important human need.  In this modern world, generally we take safety and security for granted.   Safety went hand in hand with gathering food and water for the caveman.

    Today safety and security is still a basic human need although we may not consciously recognize that fact in our comings and goings of our daily lives.  In general we are used to feeling safe.  We don’t have to be thinking about safety all the time.  We have also become accustomed to the abundance of the American Way; we can go to the store and buy our necessities.  We don’t have to plan too far in advance to satisfy our need for food and water or other supplies.  We are no longer aware of one of our basic human needs.

    No one is saying we have to be afraid and watching over our shoulders all the time.  Let’s just take the middle road.  Be aware and be prepared.  Then we can go about our daily lives and know that we have done the best we can to remain safe and protect our families.

    Be prepared.  Don’t become a victim.  Check out all the options for non-violent self protection.  At www.selfdefenserocks.com  we carry all sorts of self-defense products. Check out our stun guns, taser guns, mace pepper spray, blow guns, and so much more!

  • What You Should Remember When Using An ATM Machine

    ATM cash machines have been incorporated in our way of life.  They offer a real convenience to those on the run but at the same time offer an element of risk.  Using an ATM machine safely requires awareness and a little planning.  Just because an ATM machine is open and available 24-hours a day doesn't mean it is safe to use it.  Most ATM robberies occur at night between8:00 PMandmidnight.  ATM robbers are usually males under 25 years of age and most work alone.  ATM robbers usually position themselves nearby waiting for a victim to approach and withdraw cash.  Most ATM robbery victims are women and were alone when robbed.  Most claim that they never saw the robber coming.  Most ATM robbers used a gun or claimed to have a concealed weapon when confronting the victim and demanding their cash.

     

    If you or your family members use ATM cash machines on a regular basis, here are some tips that can make the process a little safer:

    • Use only ATM machines in well-lighted, high-traffic areas.  Don't use ATM machines that are remote or hidden such as being located behind buildings, behind pillars, walls, or away from public view.   Beware of obvious hiding places like shrubbery or overgrown trees.  ATM robbers like to have the element of surprise and no witnesses.   Robbers like good escape routes like nearby freeway on-ramps or high speed thoroughfares.
    • Choose an ATM that looks and 'feels' safer, even if it is a couple of miles out of the way.  Try and limit your use to daylight hours.  Take someone with you after hours, if you can.  When you drive up to an ATM location, scan the area for any suspicious persons.  If you see anyone suspicious standing nearby or sitting in a car, drive away.  When you approach an ATM on foot be prepared and have your access card ready.  Memorize your personal PIN number to prevent loss and speed the transaction.  After inserting your card and your PIN number keep an eye out behind you.  Never accept an offer to help or request for help from a suspicious male ahead of you at the machine.   If anyone suspicious or seemingly dangerous approaches terminate your transaction and leave immediately, even if it means running away and leaving your ATM card in the machine.  First, tell the suspicious male in a loud, firm voice to "back-off" and leave you alone.  This is designed to startle the person and give you time to flee, if appropriate.  When you receive cash from the machine put it away immediately; extract your card and walk away.
    • If you use your car at a drive-thru ATM machine the same rules apply.  Keep the car in gear, with your foot firmly on the brake, while using the ATM machine.  Keep a close eye on your rear and side view mirrors during the transaction.  Robbers almost always approach from the rear on the driver’s side.  If you see anyone approaching, drive off even if it means leaving your ATM card behind.  If you are confronted by an armed robber, just give up your money without argument.  The cash is not worth serious injury or death.  Get to a safe place and call the police immediately.
    • If lights around the ATM are not working, don't use that machine
    • Avoid ATM machines adjacent to obvious hiding places
    • Have your card ready and leave quickly, not counting your cash in public
    • Beware of offers for help from strangers during an ATM transaction
    • Don't fight with or attempt to follow the robber
    • Drive or walk to a safe place and immediately call the police

  • Stun Master 300-S

    Tina loved her job. She just hated her neighborhood.  Managing one of the trendiest nightclubs in town, she got to spend her evenings rubbing elbows with rock stars, actors, and many of the city's elite.  Her boss converted an old warehouse by the docks into a fantasy world for their guests. It kept costs down, but it also made for a pretty treacherous walk down to the parking lot at 4am.

    Tina's boss really cared about her, since she kept the place running so smoothly. She refused to let him pay for a car service so he gave her a Stun Master 300-S. She remembered how he asked her to hold it by the wrist strap when walking down the block, "just in case."  One Saturday night, Tina couldn't wait to get home. It felt like she spent the whole night breaking up arguments and kicking drunken guys out of the club.  As she marched up the block to her car, two of those guys dropped out of the shadows.

    "Hey, you!" called the tall one. Tina knew from her years of experience not to bother responding.  "You think you're too good to serve us? You think you're too good to talk to us?" shouted his companion.  The tall one slid right in front of Tina, blocking her path. She clutched her car's key fob in one hand while she dug her other hand into her satchel and wrapped it around the strap of her Stun Master.

    "Where do you think you're going?" asked the tall one, while the other man just snickered. He lunged for Tina's left hand, and she pressed the panic button on her car remote. Wailing horns pierced the silence of the back alley.  As her attacker gripped her left arm, she lunged at him with the Stun Master.  Even though he held on to Tina, she couldn't feel any of the 300,000 volts flowing into his body. As he fell, his other hand knocked the Stun Master away from Tina.  It snapped free of the wrist strap and landed on top of him as he curled up on the ground.

    The smaller attacker leaped at his buddy and grabbed the Stun Master.  "I'll show you!" he cried, as he pounced on Tina. He dug the Stun Master into her abdomen and tried to activate it, not realizing that the wrist strap also serves as a disable pin - once the Stun Master left Tina's hands, it was useless.  Tina didn't get her job on looks alone.  She kicked her attacker in the shin and clocked him on the jaw as a pair of police officers raced to the scene of the struggle. She made a mental note to thank her boss for the gift - and to ask for a raise.

    Yours in safety,

  • Secure Dog

    The following is a story how the Secure Dog was used.

     

    Jake felt more than sad when Marshall passed away. He felt worried.

     

    Marshall was Jake's loyal German Shepherd. For twelve years, he guarded Jake's sporting goods store from would-be thieves and neighborhood troublemakers. Even as the neighborhood got a little worse, Marshall kept the peace.

     

    Jake's store was the only one on the block without any graffiti.

    Nobody, it seemed, wanted a run in with a big, angry guard dog.

     

    Few people knew that Marshall was really a sweetheart, lavishing Jake with kisses every time he'd open the store in the morning.

     

    Jake's daughter, Melissa, kept the store's books, and paid a visit to her father every Thursday. She knew the old man couldn't afford to install a state of the art security system. But she also knew that he was a little too fragile to try and train another big dog.

     

    She brought her father a gift on her next visit. "This," she announced proudly, "will keep Marshall's legend alive in the neighborhood."

     

    She explained to Jake that the Secure Dog used infrared sensors to watch the store at night, just like Marshall did. When intruders showed up at either the front or the back doors, the box would bark. And it would bark louder and louder until the disturbance went away.

     

    That Saturday night, two teenage boys strolled up the sidewalk.

    The midnight streetlight stretched their shadows halfway up the block. They banged and pulled on security gates as they talked about the trouble they could cause.

     

    "Didn't old man Benson's dog just die?" asked the tall one.

     

    "I think I heard Billy say something like that," replied the short one, "I could sure use some new sneakers!"

     

    They hustled up to the front window, but before they could even try to break in, they heard loud barking from inside the store.

    And it was getting louder.

     

    "Yo, I thought you said that dog was dead," cried the short hooligan.

     

    "He must have got a new one," said his partner in crime, "I ain't messin' with no dog!"

     

    The two juveniles hustled away around the corner as fast as their legs could carry them.

     

    Marshall's legacy remains intact. He's still a presence in Benson's Sporting Goods, with a picture above the cash register - and the loud bark from the Secure Dog.

     

    Yours in safety,

  • Stun Alarm Flashlight

    Ever since her husband died, Abby felt a little less safe in their brown brick townhouse. They had always wanted to live in the city together, so they saved up what they could to buy a fixer-upper in a blossoming neighborhood.

     

    Then David got sick.

     

    Before very long, Abby was on her own again. She wanted to hang on to the good memories of that house, feeling confident that she and her neighbors were driving the bad element off the block.

     

    Still, she always made sure she was prepared for the worst. And when the lights went out on her during a really violent thunderstorm, she shuffled downstairs to the broom closet for her favorite flashlight, a gadget David had bought for her for their last Christmas together.

     

    Sixteen and a half inches long, but still very light, Abby loved how it brightened up a room. She turned it on, and looked for her emergency radio.  Red and blue lights flickered through the windows, so Abby figured that the power would come back soon.

     

    As she swiveled around, the bright beam of light illuminated a strange face.  Abby gasped.

     

    "Don't make a sound," growled the stranger, "or I'll hurt you."

     

    It didn't even take Abby a heartbeat to lunge forward with the flashlight. Her attacker grinned, expecting to deflect a blow.

    Instead, he received a 200,000-volt jolt of electricity from the flashlight's built-in stun baton. Abby loved that flashlight for a reason.

     

    Rushing over to the window, she activated the flashlight's piercing alarm. Cops outside saw her waving the light and rushed up to her building. She found out later that her attacker was a convicted criminal who tried to escape when his prisoner transport vehicle crashed into a utility pole.

     

    That explained the blackout - and the presence of this scary individual in Abby's home. The police sergeant had a blast explaining to the detectives how Abby used an innocent looking flashlight to nab one of the city's most wanted felons.  And Abby felt David's presence in their home even stronger than ever.

     

    Yours in safety,

  • It's The Obvious That Is Often Overlooked

    Mike snickered. Sometimes his sister, Beth, had the craziest ideas. Mike was at Beth's home helping her to put her affairs back into order after her husband's death.  Today, he was photographing her valuables for insurance purposes.  Beth had taken out a new policy and she wanted to keep her own records.

    After Mike was finished with the pictures and preparing to head home, Beth asked him to wait -- she had two more items to photograph.  She then pulled her wedding and engagement ring from inside the flower pot that held her Easter Lilies -- the same pot that held Poinsettias last December. Mike was humored and asked her about her choice of hiding places.

     

    Beth generally kept the flower pot sitting on the kitchen counter when it contained flowers,and on the top shelf next to other empty pots when it didn't.  Mike told her that he thought the flower pot safe was an odd place for her to keep her most beloved possessions.  But, there they sat, right out in the open.

     

    But Beth explained that the flower pot safe was, in fact, the safest place for her treasures.  So safe, that her rings had recently eluded a burglar and a dishonest cousin.  The burglar had found the silverware and the cousin recently took a fair amount of cash out of Beth's wall safe.  The rings were not touched.  She asked Mike, "Where would a burglar or a thief look first?"  After thinking about it for a moment, Mike had to admit that if he were a burglar, he wouldn't even think to look for valuables in a flower pot.  He was pretty certain that a burglar would go through drawers and closets, or break into any obvious safe he or she came across.

     

    As Mike drove home, he thought about the various reasons a flower pot safe, or any diversion safe, would be useful. He lived in a low crime area, but he had a lot of company and so did his three teenage boys.  You'd like to believe that you can trust everyone, but the reality is that you simply can't.

     

    Once he arrived home, Mike ordered two flower pot safes of his own.

     

    Should you?
