We also have the LED light that fits right on the end so it's always in place. Click the Baton Light picture below to be taken to it's page.

Another option for this retractable nightstick is the glass breaker that replaces the endcap. Instead of the LED light, you could opt to have the window shatterer instead. Aside from breaking glass, you have a hard metal point that can be used to jab and inflict some serious pain.

What size baton should I get?

To give an idea, I've played around with all three sizes and have determined the size that feels most comfortable to me is the 21 inch. I'm 5'8" tall and the 21 inch length seems to fit best for me. The 26 inch is a bit too long and the 16 inch is just a touch too short for me. This is just my personal opinion and you may like the longer or shorter one for yourself.

So if you aren't sure which size you should get, then go with this recommendation. If you are around the same height as me, then I'd recommend the middle size which is the twenty one incher. If you're a bit taller, then the 26 incher may be the size for you.  If you're on the shorter side, then you may want to go with the 16 incher. This is, of course, just a guideline but one that generally you can go by.

You may want to longer one so you have a further reach or the shorter one for your particular purpose. It really just depends on what feels right when you have it in your hand. You may want different sizes and place them in different locations.

I keep one in my driver's side car door pocket in case of any trouble while on the road. If there's ever something that happens while in my vehicle, at least I know I can quickly have a self defense weapon with me to defend myself or my family.

Like it a lot, though, the jury is still kind of out... Extended, the baton seems to be an amazing and durable tool for self-defense, which is why I got one for me and my girl. Collapsing it is not so easy, which was not what my girl and I were...prepared for. Yes, yes. I understand the "locking" mechanism is simply friction, so it needs to very strong. And perhaps it's understood that it becomes easier with use. These things I would eventually figure out...

However, I would've given a full 5 stars if not for the RIDICULOUS "How To" videos on collapsing the baton! Out of the box, these things do NOT close NEARLY as easily as those videos depict! Quite frankly, keeping in mind how the "locking" mechanism is friction, I wonder if it SHOULD close THAT easily and still be an effective self-defense tool! One video shows a gal who sorta taps the baton on the floor, and then gently stabs it into floor, closing it without so much as a grunt for effort. The second video shows some guy gently whacking it on the back of his couch in some crummy apartment, and then he SHAKES it closed! Really?! Right out of the box?? C'monnnnn...Seriously???

And so, I give 2.5 stars (rounded up to 3, since they don't do half stars) :P for it's effectiveness extended. 2.5 (2) stars MORE would've been added if the information concerning closing it was a bit more informative and honest.

We shall see what time reveals. And I will try to remember to update this review if something changes...
I had mine for a couple days now and after using it i havent had any problems, closing it can be kinda difficult at first but you dont wanna slam it on your house floor or table the baton is very strong and will leave marks if not break it i find it easy to close on concrete but im finding it easyer to close on some indoor hard floors at malls and schools but still for like hard wood or cheap tile i wouldnt even attemp it
Very fast shipping. Came as described. Whips open nicely, closing works better is you follow the enclosed directions rather than follow the video. Also, use concrete to close it. It'll dent hardwood, trust me. I also had to Loctite the tip in place because it would loosen up easily. It'll keep me comfortable on my long motorcycle rides across the country.
I just bought it and found it to be an excellent choice for a self-defense weapon. With my husband being deployed overseas, it can be a little scary to be home alone... I already feel safer with this is my hands. The only thing is, and I don't know if it's just me, but I have difficulty closing it. I'm going to try greasing it with some WD40... besides that, I love it.
Though I wanted one for myself, I bought a number of them as Christmas presents for all the women in my extended family meaning my mom, wife, sister, sister-in-law, daughter, daughter-in-law, and nieces. They were excited and all of them immediately went to trying their hand at using them. It was very rewarding at that point and i knew I had made the right purchase. I agree that the collapsing process will take some getting used to, but that does not change the fact that it is a great self-defense weapon for anyone, especially all my girls.
I like this website, it clean, very informative, and I knew exactly what I was getting before buying. I received my baton very quickly, and it was packaged securely and came with the holster it said it included.

As for the baton itself, it flips open very easily, but collapsing it takes getting used to. It is expected that you don't want it collapsing on you when in use, but you really got to whack it to get it to close, harder than you would think. When I was trying to close it, it only collapsed halfway and a ring from the base came lose. I was also disappointed that It had already gotten scratched up just from the collapsing process. I know thats superficial, but still disappointing. Other than that, its got some weight to it and really can pack a punch.

Overall, I'd say that the baton will keep you safe, its just not as slick operating it as I thought it would be.

My order arrived yesterday in good shape and as described. Those batons are one mean piece of weaponry. I sincerely hope I never have to wack somebody with one! :)

You run a nice business, Steve. Keep up the great work and feel free to use me as a reference or testamonial any time."

Best regards,
Dwain Bertoncello, Sammamish, WA
Everything is perfect. The telescopic baton arrived just as you said it would and I love it. I've forwarded your Web site to a bunch of friends telling them of you excellent product line and service. I am certain I will be ordering more from you in the future."
