If you are looking for a self-defense tool then you need to find something that is effective, can defend you in different conditions, is convenient, discreet, and above all practical. Not all self-defense tools meet these requirements. Firearms are very effective as they can cause great damage and have the stopping power to intimidate just about any threat. However, they operate with a lethal force which can often lead to excessive and undesirable results. Pepper sprays are versatile and quite capable but they can have some limitations if there are multiple assailants. Today we will tell you about a self-defense tool that is quite unique and is gaining popularity. The blinding strobe light is quite inexpensive, can temporarily blind the assailants, and gives you the opportunity to escape or incapacitate the assailants.
What is a blinding strobe light?
It is a flashlight that gives off a very high intensity of light which is usually of 300 lumens or above. It also has a strobe mode where the flashlight constantly blinks to blind the intruder and create a window of opportunity for you. It comes with a compact and lightweight build so that you can easily carry it with you at all times. It is easy to use and convenient to have for a number of purposes other than self-defense as well.
How to use a blinding strobe light?
Here is how you use blinding strobe light for self-defense purposes. First, turn it on and then put it in strobe mode. It will blind the attacker and throw him off balance. This will buy you some time to plan your next move. Following are some of the options for your next move depending on your situation:
- Escape the area and flee to a safe zone.
- Yell for help if you know that people are nearby.
- Strike a few blows to the attacker using the flashlight.
- Take out any other self-defense weapon that you might have and use that to inflict damage to the attacker.
If you will be using the strobe light to strike the attacker as well then you will need to have a firm grip on the strobe light as it may slip from your hand. In that case, we recommend having a blinding strobe light self-defense glove so that you can easily maneuver it.
What are the benefits of using a blinding strobe light?
Here are some of the reasons why you should use a blinding strobe light over other self-defense tools:
No Legal Restrictions:
Flashlights are seemingly harmless tools so they are legal to carry and use in all states and countries. They are even allowed in areas like airplanes, banks, post offices, etc. so they are really convenient.
Flashlights are discreet and easy to conceal. If someone saw a flashlight in your pocket or bag, no one will suspect you. On the other hand, if someone saw something like a taser in your possession then you might attract unnecessary trouble.
Illuminates The Area:
A strobe light is the only self-defense tool that can illuminate the area around you. Attackers love to operate in the cover of the dark and a sudden illumination risks them being identified so they are likely to flee.
Strong strobe lights have a long range. Therefore long distance blinding strobe light self-defense will ensure the maximum distance between you and your attacker which will put you at an advantage.
