Imagine being suddenly awoken with a full on adrenaline rush fearing for your life. Would you be able to defend yourself if someone broke into your cab? For many trucker's, their home is on wheels. Sleeping in your cab is a part of life and being prepared with a trucker self defense package significantly puts the odds more in your favor. What do you have in your rig to protect yourself?
Self Defense Kit for Truckers
It's not always feasible carrying a firearm since truckers cross so many jurisdictions and laws are not the same in every state. But you still need things to defend yourself with. The products in this kit gives you a range of options you'll have available to you.
The 21 inch telescopic steel baton is your thumper. This striking weapon starts out small when it is collapsed but extends out with a flick of the wrist. This can be retracted and placed within easy reach inside your truck (door pocket). It includes a holster for carrying on your belt if you want protection while outside your cab also. Just grab it from it's spot and place it in your belt holster.
The glass breaker end cap replaces the standard end cap on the extendable baton. It has a point on it that can be used for breaking windows as well as inflciting pain in a self defense situation.
Everyone knows pepper spray is effective. Even the police carry this as part of their standard belt equipment. Normal self defense sprays come out as a liquid. But if you had to spray it inside your truck's cab, that wouldn't be such a great idea. If you have to, you have to...but. In this trucker package, we include a 2 ounce Pepper Gel that comes out thick and sticks to the face of an attacker. If you need to use this inside, there would be much less of a mess to clean up.
This heart shaped plastic knife is a nice back up. Keep near you while sleeping so it's right there is you need to defend yourself immediately. Or keep it on your keychain so it's always with you. It's made of tough, durable plastic. Similar to holding keys in your fist while punching, this one is pre-designed to inflict quick damage to end the conflict quickly.
