Personal defense as simple as it sounds easily slips most peoples minds. It’s easy to become complacent when nothing ever happens to you or you live in a safe area. Typically people get concerned with personal defense as a knee-jerk reaction to seeing something on the evening news. Also, not everyone is comfortable carrying a knife or flashlight for personal defense. If you’re carrying a knife to be used as a defensive tool, it’s going to require training and regular practice to remain proficient. You also have to take into account the legal ramifications if you are going to use a knife.
Something that everyone carries with them and has no legal restrictions are keys; whether that is for a car, house or workplace. An impromptu personal defense weapon is to put your keys between your fingers in order to project a little more pain to the attacker. Although that is a cool trick to keep in the back of your mind, the keys will tend to slip between the fingers which reduces the effectiveness of them. Well, we now have a remedy to that problem. Enter the new Tactikey.
“Tactikey™ patented design turns your everyday key into your every day carry. Perfectly contoured to fit in your hand for maximum impact. Lightest protection in the world!” – Tactikey
For me personally, the Tactikey really shines for those that travel on a regular basis, especially overseas. When traveling you’re really restricted with what you can have on you as you pass through airport security checkpoints. The Tactikey fills that gap perfectly, giving me an additional layer of security at my disposal. In addition to my flashlight, I now have a pretty solid base for personal protection when moving around.
The Tactikey is not going to be penetrating the attacker like a knife would, but it’s going to hurt like hell when you target the face, hands and arms. The pain that is inflicted by the Tactikey will give you the time you need to break contact and run from the situation. From a legal standpoint, you’re not going to be scrutinized like you would, if you had used a knife.
The Tactikey does one other thing regarding your mindset. It becomes a constant daily reminder as you grab your keys to leave the comfort and safety of your home. Just seeing the Tactikey will remind you to be vigilant and aware of your surroundings as you go about your day.
With an MSRP of only $9.99 with free shipping in the USA, you cannot go wrong by adding this to your keyring. Head on over to Tactikey and see the variety of colors they offer and pick up a few. You cannot put a price on your life or the lives of your loved ones.
Stay vigilant, Stay safe!
