Centereach, NY (PRWEB) February 2, 2008
The escalating statistics on crime today are alarming. Recent years have seen a half million cases of robberies and nearly a million cases of aggravated assault in the U.S. alone. There are 40,000 car-jackings a year, where the victims are faced with a weapon 75 percent of the time. Very few expect to be faced with such crime, but everyone should be prepared to defend against such cases. At http://www.mypersonaldefense.com, buyers will find a vast assortment of self-defense items to better prepare them for such an incident. The site also offers home security, child safety and information on how to avoid dangerous situations.
Perhaps the best non-lethal defense against an aggressive attacker is MACE pepper spray. Fired from a small canister, it causes immediate closing of the eyes, violent coughing and painful burning of the skin. Most models have an effective range of 8-15 feet, and come in a variety of styles such as key chains, belt loop attachments and containers disguised as lipstick or pagers. There are even versions that are designed for dog and bear attacks. The site also offers personal alarms that omit up to 130 decibels of sound. They stock an impressive selection of self-defense instructional DVDs that reveal fighting secrets, like how to "crush an attacker's feet with a single stomp," or "break a man's jaw like a piece of peanut brittle."
It is not only important to be prepared for attacks in unfamiliar areas, but also in the home. Shoppers will find a variety of alarms and motion detectors to alert of an intrusion. Video surveillance cameras can snap pictures of a perpetrator. According to the site, "a burglar spends an average of 8 minutes in the victim's home," so disguised safes such as peanut butter jars and flower pots can decrease the odds of a thief finding your valuables.
Child safety products are also supplied to keep the young ones protected. The popular KinderGard Home Safety Kit includes 12 items such as outlet plugs, cabinet locks and corner cushions to help avoid injuries. Also available is an electronic child leash that alerts a receiver if the transmitter strays beyond a certain distance.
Shoppers will find the site easy to navigate and the product descriptions useful and informative. There is extensive information available describing how to avoid many risky situations, such as home safety tips, travel safety and situations on a college campus. MyPersonalDefense takes pride in their customer service, and offer a 30-day return policy on most products. When it comes to protecting oneself, the home and loved ones, all precautions should be taken to ensure the highest level of personal safety.
