Protecting yourself with the Heavy Hitter is as easy as 1-2-3
Identify Threat: An attacker will use the cover of darkness to sneak up on their victims and to hide their identity. He'll also look for the most vulnerable victim. This powerful light beam shined in the direction of a possible attacker is often enough to persuade him to go in search of an easier target.
Disorient Attacker: Shining a light of at least 120 lumens directly into someone's eyes will cause several seconds of disorientation and impaired vision. The Heavy Hitter boasts a super bright 200 lumen light beam with Self Defense Strobe that can disorient your attacker and give you time to flee.
Strike: If these first two are not enough to deter the attacker, then a blow from the Heavy Hitter certainly will! Just step toward your attacker and swing for "de-fense"! It's one strike and they're out! The 16 inch long bat and the length of your arm will keep you a safe distance away from the attacker and provide you with a long "strike zone".
