An expandable baton is an indispensable self-defence tool for law enforcement officials and security guards alike. Widely used by police officers everywhere, extendable batons are compact and portable due to their telescoping features. With a quick flick of the wrist, you can easily deploy a baton ready and effective for close-quarters combat.
A police baton is a long, solid stick usually constructed from steel or reinforce-coated wood. Telescopic versions of these batons can be extended in length with a flick of the wrist, offering more reach during encounters as well as concealability due to its collapsible nature. Transport and storage is easy when the baton is collapsed into its handle. With a baton sheath or clip you can attach batons to your duty belt or store it in your bag.
Collapsible batons come in varying sizes, with baton lengths extending up to more than 30 inches, letting you keep a safe distance from any threats that may come your way. Most batons come in three standard lengths: 16", 21", and 26".
Even if you're not working as a police office or a security guard, a steel expandable baton is still an excellent self-defense tool for all types of people. Simply deploying the baton can offer a psychological form of intimidation to any would-be threats because of the sound extending a baton makes. You can prevent the use of physical force with this action, potentially discouraging attackers from advancing further.
