This Expandable Spring Baton is your secret to self-defense. Available in two sizes. With a simple snap of the wrist, the baton expands to its full and becomes a flexibile self defense weapon.
The 23" baton measures 9" when closed. The 17" baton closes to measure 7".
Each baton features a rubber handle for better gripping. Nylon wrist strap included.
*Note: The "Spring" references the heavy duty spring that is part of the expanding shaft.
**** OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS ****
To open - hold baton close to body, gripping the handle firmly. Swing baton quickly away from body. The batons will extend. To collapse - grip handle firmly and strike the tip of the baton into a firm surface (such as the ground) in the opposite direction that the baton extends.
***** PLEASE NOTE ******
We have received several comments that these batons can be hard to close. The sections are held open by the friction of the tubes against each other. The more force used to open the baton, the more force needed to close the baton. These batons are not toys. These batons are are heavy duty steel weapons for self defense. We choose to sell a high quality product that takes some effort to close than a piece of junk that will fail in an emergency situation.
