Vigilant 130dB Personal Alarm with LED Light (PPS22BL Black), Rape Attack Defense Alarm with Included Batteries and Grenade Style Keychain Pin Activation
Simply pull the grenade-style pin (attached to the key chain), and this ear-piercing alarm will activate for up to a half hour of continuous sound. Activating the alarm switches the element of surprise from the attacker to the potential victim. Replacing the pin is the only way to silence the alarm.
Press and hold the gray button on the front for the LED light. The large circle on the front body of the alarm is the speaker port where the noise comes from.
Includes an LED light with press and hold ON button, and comes with preloaded, replaceable batteries
Personal alarms are one of the fastest growing segments at retail in the self defense industry, because an attacker’s worst enemy is attention. Personal alarms are legal to carry in all 50 states (even on airplanes!) and are a very safe method of self defense. They require no training or skill to operate, and can be used by anyone regardless of age or physical ability. Victims are often too traumatized to shout for help in unfamiliar and dangerous situations, increasing their vulnerability. Criminals do not like to draw attention, and will likely run off when they realize the alarm cannot be stopped.
Key Chain Design Can Attach to Your Keys, Your Purse, Backpack or Briefcase
How Loud is 130db?
The decibel (abbreviated dB) is the unit used to measure how loud a sound is. The the human ear is incredibly sensitive. Your ears can hear everything from your fingertip brushing lightly over your skin to a loud jet engine. In terms of power, the sound of the jet engine is about 1,000,000,000,000 times more powerful than the smallest sound that your ears can just barely hear. That's a big difference!
On the decibel scale, the smallest audible sound (near total silence) is 0 dB. A sound 10 times more powerful is 10 dB. A sound 100 times more powerful than near total silence is 20 dB. A sound 1,000 times more powerful than near total silence is 30 dB. Below is a list of common sounds and their decibel levels, as well as some of our alarms for comparison. Hearing damage can occur at 140dB, and optimal volume for a personal alarm is 125dB - 135dB.
