The Problem? If the bad guys can see you...They. Can. Hurt You.
Often taken for granted, Flashlights are probably one of the most effective personal defense products you can own.
Why? Because if they can't see you, they can't hurt you.
Pointing a high-intensity flashlight beam into someone's eyes interferes with their ability to see anything, and that includes you.
A focused light with an output of about 100 lumens can dazzle or temporarily flash-blind an attacker out to about 10 feet; depending on the ambient lighting conditions. This flash-blinding effect causes a glare or an after-image that can last for 5 to 10 seconds. At nighttime, when everyone's eyes are more sensitive to light, the effects of shining a high-intensity light into someone's eyes are even more pronounced. The effects are more severe, and they last longer.
Some flashlights also offer a strobing capability. Strobing occurs on high-power output, and it is even more effective as a non-lethal personal protection measure. Potential effects of a strobing, high-intensity light are:
Total blindness for a few minutes
Disorientation or dizziness;
Our flashlights are lightweight, rugged, and efficient. Since most of them use advanced Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, they're very effective at flash-blinding your attacker - day or night.
The 5-10 foot standoff range you get with one of our flashlights, combined with the duration of the visual impairment that you will cause, will give you the time and the space needed to get to safety.
