Using your personal alarm as a door or rape alarm

So you can relax and enjoy your travels knowing you have the security of a reliable personal alarm.
Types of personal alarm
There are limited options in terms of the different types of personal rape alarm. Primarily, different options vary in shape and size. For example, you can get egg shaped alarms, or more squared alarms.
The biggest differentiation is how much sound they produce! You should look for an alarm that is at least 120dB and you must test it regularly. Alarms are electronic devices and need to be taken care of – just like your mobile phone. They can be damaged in transit or damaged in your bag. So try to take care of your personal alarm so it can take care of you! We recommend testing your alarm as regularly as possible (at an absolute minimum before you leave on each trip).
Advantages of a personal alarm
This is quite a hotly debated topic. Should you rely on a safety alarm? Does it lull you into a false sense of security? We believe that you should always be on high alert in public places. Your safety is top priority. Above all you should rely on yourself, your senses and your instinct to keep you safe, not on your personal alarm. Therefore your alarm should be a last resort in case of absolute emergency.
An alarm does not only have to be used in an attack situation. You may also be able to use your alarm to scare off animals, to alert people if you’re stuck or trapped, to warn of a dangerous situation (fire etc), or to distract a potential attacker.

Where should I keep my rape alarm?
Somewhere accessible on your person if possible. Otherwise, the front or side pocket of a bag can be a great backup storage location. Sleeping with the alarm under your pillow or on your bedside table are other options for nighttime. The alarm has a keyring attachment so you can securely add it to your keys, inside a bag or on a strap.

How big is the alarm?
The main body of the alarm is 6cm long, 3.5cm wide and 1.5cm deep. The pull pin strap is 15cm.
