Mace Self Defense Spray
How to Use Mace Self Defense Spray
Mace Triple Action self defense spray contains a unique formulation of CN-tear gas and OC-pepper solution in a solvent blend with dry nitrogen as a propellant. Together they provide our strongest, most effective and humane deterrent available for protection against attack.
When you sense that you are in a potentially dangerous situation, carry your Mace defense spray in your hand, slip your thumb under the safety cover and be ready to spray the assailant by pressing down on the red button with your thumb.
Notice how the unit is shaped so that you can tell by the feel how it should be held. The safety cover will prevent access to the red button if you hold the unit backward. The shape of your self defense spray will enable you to know, even in the dark or in a stressful situation, when the device is properly oriented and ready for use.
Point and Spray
If you have to use your defensive spray, point and spray short bursts at the facial area of your assailant. Because of the oleoresin capsicum, direct eye or nasal contact offers more favorable effects. Make sure you are aiming for the face.
Do not attempt to punish the attacker by continuous spraying because you may cause unnecessary suffering. Do not try to take the attacker into custody-you might be injured if you do. Immediately escape towards a safer area and contact the police when you are safely away.
Your self-defense spray is designed to be actuated in short 1/2 second bursts aimed at the face. When actuated, a stream of tear gas and oleoresin capsicum will issue from the unit a distance up to 12 feet (depending on the pressure of the defensive spray and wind conditions). Avoid spraying directly into the wind. Use the self-defense spray when it is in the upright position. Otherwise, it may not function properly then or afterward.
If you intend to rely on your unit as a defense, you should test the functioning of the spray periodically by discharging one or two bursts outdoors in a safe area away from all persons and animals in the vicinity. Take care that you do not exhaust the contents of the unit you intend to rely upon. Have a backup or purchase inexpensive practice sprays to get used to using it and building muscle memory.
Your best protection is to avoid potentially dangerous situations if you can. Always be aware of your environment and the people around you. Be especially alert after dark.
Do everything you possibly can to escape from an assailant, including resorting to the use of your self-defense spray.
