Personal Protection for Women

Personal Protection Devices for Women

We've been in the personal protection business for over two decades now and know a thing or two about the top choices ladies can carry to ensure their safety. This short list below identifies what we believe are the best self defense weapons for women available in the market for non-lethal weapons.

Protection Weapons for Women

Personal Protection for WomenFirst up is the TASER Pulse. Hands down, the absolute most powerful device available to quickly stop an attacker. This wonder of technology is the same type of weapon that our brave law enforcement officers use to immediately stop an unruly suspect.

Surely, you've seen a video or two of some idiot who doesn't think they need to listen to the police. A split second later, that same someone is lying on the ground, unable to move.

This tool completely overrides the body's nervous system and effectively shuts it down. An added bonus is that it can be used from up to fifteen away. You don't even need to be that close to the loser to put them down and safely get away.

The TASER Pulse tops the list of personal protection devices for women.

Next up is Pepper Spray!

Oleoresin Capsicum, or OC for short, is the active ingredient in the fastest acting self defense sprays. This differs from tear gas or other forms, so be sure to get a spray that has this! 

Lipstick Pepper SprayPepper sprays come in at number two in our lineup because they can also be used from a distance.

It doesn't overpower the body and make it unable to move, but it sure gives the person on the receiving end a new perspective.

If you spray pepper spray on an attacker's face, they will immediately feel like their face is on fire. Their eyes will close involuntarily, and they will have a rough time even breathing.

The only thing they will want to do after being sprayed is to get some water and lots of it! Whatever they were thinking or planning to do before will immediately be replaced with concern for their OWN well-being.

Being unable to see or to breathe and feeling like holy hell has come down upon them will put a concrete damper on their intentions towards you. You will be able to leave the area and call the police or otherwise get help. 

Pepper spray is one of our most popular products for a woman because of its effectiveness, the ability to keep your distance from your attacker, and its very inexpensive price.

Last but not least is a stun gun!

Stun Guns for WomenStun guns are direct contact weapons meaning that you have to actually touch the person being stunned in order for it to do its job. While these are also very effective at repelling someone, they come in third because of the necessity to be so close to your attacker.

With that being said, a short blast of electricity pumped into them will cause alarm, immediate pain, and a massive contraction of the muscles to which it was applied. If kept on them for a few seconds (always hold a stun gun on the person for as long as possible), it can cause them to be unbalanced and unstable. This is your time to escape!

The surprise of a sudden large amount of voltage into a body can overwhelm a person. Yet, because the amperage is very low, no permanent damage is done and they will recover. If you have to use your stungun, hold it in place for several seconds and then run away to get help. A stun gun is another way you have to stop an attack and protect yourself, so take advantage of the shock factor and get the hell out of there as soon as you're done shocking them.

You have just read our top three recommendations on personal protection for women with the number one option being the TASER Pulse. With whatever you decide to carry - Always carry it with you!

Stay aware of your surroundings, watch for people overly interested in you - especially from afar, exude confidence when walking and in your mannerisms, and if the time ever comes - act decisively and quickly when confronted with an attack.

Types of Personal Protection Devices

Deciding which item to carry for self defense can sometimes be quite confusing. With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to make a decision as to which of the personal protection devices are best for you.

Self defense devices for women range from harmless all the way up to causing pain and even injury. While you may not be comfortable inflicting personal injury upon someone (even though that’s exactly what they intend to do to you), there are many options you can use to deter or ward off an imminent threat to your safety.

Personal Alarms

Emits a loud siren that gets attention. These are activated by pressing a button on the device. Once you’ve done so, the alarm sounds off making a lot of noise.

Personal Alarm - Makes a Very Loud Sound!

The idea behind these rape or panic alarms is that the unwanted noise could make your attacker want to get out of there so he doesn’t get caught. Noise is the enemy of an assailant. A siren going off along with the sound of a woman screaming will bring someone to help.

Pepper Spray

Dispenses a debilitating mixture of oleoresin capsaicin (OC) that causes severe pain in the eyes, nose, and throat. This is one of the most common methods of protecting yourself. These come in different forms: Stream, Fogger, Foam, Gel and can also be disguised as a writing pen or even a lipstick case.

Pepper Spray for a Woman

Carrying a defensive spray on you at all times is one of the best and least expensive methods of protecting yourself. As long as you hit the person in the face with your spray, they will have no choice but to immediately stop what they are doing. The intense burning sensation and inability to breathe forces your attacker to give up the assault.

Stun guns

When contact is made, these stunning devices cause severe muscle contractions and pain. The overwhelming shock and surprise of the electricity flowing through a body will certainly trip them up enough for you to make your get-away.

Keychain Stun Gun

Stun guns are not like what you see on TV or in the movies. They do not knock a person out cold or make them drop like a sack of potatoes. They are designed to allow you to get the upper hand in a situation and then run away and get yourself to safety or to find help. The shock factor gives you that upper hand edge.

These come in a variety of forms and can be large, small, high voltage, low voltage, and/or be disguised as a lipstick, perfume bottle…even a cell phone.

Telescopic Steel Batons

A tad on the heavier side, but an expandable baton can be extended in less than a second. With a full pound or more (depending on the length), when you swing this at an attacker and make contact, there will be no doubt in their mind that you are not someone to be trifled with. This weapon is larger, hard as steel, and causes serious injury if need be.

Collapsible Baton

These flick batons are used to hit the knees, ankles, collar bones, or other bones and will cause severe pain with a solid hit. They easily break bone which would certainly stop someone from continuing an attack.

Keychain Weapons

There are a couple of keychain personal protection devices that are also beneficial for self defense.

Heart Attack Keychain KnifeThe Heart Attack is one of them. It’s really a keychain knife that can be used as a punch. Similar to holding keys in your hand like used to be taught many years ago, a punch with one of these hard plastic knives causes lots of bleeding. It’s not a time to get squeamish about protecting yourself – you do whatever it takes to stay alive.


This is a smaller and lighter metal cylinder that can attach to your keyring. Although not as hefty as the telescopic baton, this defensive keychain weapon is used to strike an opponent and cause pain.

Pink Kubotan Keyring

By attaching your keys to it, you hold your keys and swing this at your attacker. Hitting any bony surface gives the desired effect. Alternatively, you could hold the kubotan and swing your keys towards them aiming for the face to draw blood.

Also called a yawara stick, it is also used by holding in a fist and jabbing and pressing the end of it on a pressure point. If you were grabbed, you would jab this on a pressure point, such as on top of the shoulder area. This causes pain and hopefully for them to let go of you. You could continue to fight or choose to get away as quickly as possible.

Women’s Personal Safety Products

These are just a few of the safety devices for women that are available. Be comfortable having it with you or else you won’t carry it so be sure that:

  1. You aren’t scared of it, and
  2. You are able to easily keep it with you at all times.

Of all the personal protection devices, my number one recommendation to all women is to carry pepper spray. It is small enough to keep with you always. It’s not heavy at all, so it won’t weigh you down. But most of all, it is one of the most effective forms of protection there is. No matter how big the guy, a blast of OC spray in their face is going to stop them, period. When you can't breathe and your face feels on fire, you have other things to worry about than anything else you were doing.

Personal Protection Devices

Do yourself a favor and carry pepper spray. Hopefully, you will never have to use it. But if you do, you will have saved yourself from something potentially awful. With the cost of $10 or less, there is no reason for any woman not to have a personal protection device that can really save their life.


Very Helpful Devices. I just want to add "Silent Beacon" safety device to the list. I have personally used it and want to recommend it to you guys. It is very easy to use and helpful in emergency situations.
