If you’ve ever wanted some self defense products but are afraid of having a gun around, this is probably one of the best items you can buy.
The expandable steel baton is also referred to as a “blackjack.” I heard this while living in Costa Rica, so I don’t know how much that crosses over into the USA or other parts of the world, but it’s worth mentioning. Either way, this police baton can save you while you are encountering a bad situation. I’m currently using mine that I just bought, and hope to have the best expandable baton reviews up here very shortly so you can buy one with confidence knowing they’ve been tried and tested by our staff.
Why Should You Buy an Expandable Steel Baton?
Well, for obvious reasons, it’s for your own safety.
Below are some helpful tips to ensure the proper use of an expandable steel baton.
- Opening/Expanding – To open/expand your baton, simply grasp the baton firmly, raise your arm to an elevated position, and swiftly flick your arm downward. With practice you can expand the baton with just a sideways or downward flick of the wrist with no needed arm swing.
- Closing/Retracting – To close/retract your expandable steel baton, simply grasp the baton firmly and bang the tip onto a hard surface such as concrete (do not attempt on wood flooring as damage may result). Make sure that the baton is vertical and not at an angle when hitting it on the ground, otherwise the baton could get damaged.
