Are you equipped with the tools you need to defend yourself?

Whether you’re living alone or you just get nervous when you hear a bump in the night, having the right tools for self-defense will bring you serious peace of mind. The array of batons on The Home Security Superstore can help you protect yourself in the event of a home invasion or other attack. With so many different models, you can always find a baton you feel comfortable using. 


A baton, also commonly referred to as a truncheon, nightstick, or billy club, is a simple yet effective self-defense weapon. It’s essentially a short stick that can be used to strike an attacker, delivering enough force to incapacitate them without causing permanent damage. This makes batons a popular choice for civilians and law enforcement personnel alike.


At The Home Security Superstore, we offer a wide selection of batons for sale, perfect for anyone looking for an easy-to-carry, non-lethal self-defense option. Batons are made from different materials thus some are created to be lightweight while others are heavier. Many are capable of being expanded and yes, there are stun gun batons. There are lots of choices when deciding on what type of baton to buy. However, The Home Security Superstore offers a huge selection for your particular need and use. With a little practice, you’ll be able to take down a would-be attacker with ease.

What is the advantage of a baton for self-defense?

There are a lot of products that can be useful for self-defense. From stun guns and Tasers to pepper spray and edged weapons, how can you tell which is the best option for you? Well certainly, a baton is something to seriously consider. Here are a few advantages to using a baton for self-defense. 

Non-Lethal or Lethal: Use a firearm or knife, and you’re automatically (by law) using deadly force, no matter where you aim or strike. Use a taser, stun gun, or pepper spray, and you do not have the option to use lethal force. A baton, on the other hand, offers both options. In a non-life threatening self-defense scenario, you can strike an attacker’s arms, hands, legs, or collarbone. If you feel your life is threatened, however, and you can justify this in a court of law, then you may find it necessary to strike an attacker’s head in order to save your life or the life of an innocent other. Be sure to use only reasonable force and know your laws to understand exactly how to use a baton legally.

Deterrent: Some weapons are small and not very frightening. Sure, a firearm or knife can be daunting, but again you better be ready to legally use deadly force with one of those. Pull out the more versatile baton, however, and the idea of being whacked in the wrong place can deter an attacker from proceeding. 

Legal to Own Without a Permit: Unlike a firearm, batons are legal to own and store in the home without a permit or license. In some states, it is also legal to carry in your car and on your person without a permit; while other states require permits to carry outside the home, if legal at all for carrying by civilians. Check your state’s laws on baton carry.

Easy to Use: Unlike edged weapons and firearms, the baton mimics the oldest weapon ever wielded by man—the stick. Give a person any other weapon, and they will likely have to learn how to operate it. Give a person a stick, and even a child can dangerously swing it. No directions and no lessons are necessary… Just aim and strike.

Finding the Right Batons for Personal Security

Looking for the right self-defense baton takes a bit of research, but we’ve done most of the heavy lifting for you. All you have to do is browse our large inventory of batons and choose one based on your needs. Let’s take a look at which batons are right for safety at home and on the go. 

Batons for Home Safety: If you want a baton to keep your family safe, consider one of our expandable batons for sale. These batons can tuck into a nightstand or dresser drawer and expand in just seconds. Flashlight and stun gun batons are also smart choices for use at home. Our straight fixed batons fit beneath a bed or mattress and don’t require any deployment to expand. 


For self-defense on the go, check out our selection of concealable batons. These include small expandable batons that you can carry in your purse or on your belt loop. Stun gun batons and flashlights with an incapacitating electrode at the end are also excellent choices. Just grab and swing!

Batons for Your Car: Keeping safe in your car is another consideration. Check out our keychain batons that travel anywhere with you and deploy quite easily. Push-button batons also store conveniently in your glove box for easy access and use. Batons can not only be used for self-defense but also to smash a window in the event of an emergency if you’re unable to use the door. 

Size Matters

About 90% of batons these days are expandable, which means most are applicable in just about any environment—at home, in your car, or on your person. So, what should differentiate your choice is size, based on exactly where you plan to store or carry the baton and what you feel most comfortable using. Size can matter not just in practical application for storing or carrying, but also from the standpoint of intimidation and distance. A more robust baton will be perceived as more daunting to an attacker, and a longer baton has the ability to be wielded at a further distance for greater protection. We have keychain batons that expand to 12-inches as well as larger batons that run up to 31-inches. 

So, if you plan to carry the baton on you, for instance, you’ll probably want something easier to carry, like an expandable keychain baton. In your car, you could utilize a small or larger expandable baton depending on where exactly in the car you plan to keep it and what size feels right to you. For home, bigger is better. In the old days, people kept a baseball bat in their bedroom. Now, it’s much easier to store a large, expandable baton in your nightstand or keep a long, fixed baton next to your bed or in the closet. Maybe even one with a flashlight and stun gun built-in.

Protect Yourself Today

Finding the best self-defense baton for your home is as easy as browsing our selection of great deals. Whether you settle on a police baton for sale or a flashlight baton, you will feel better prepared to protect yourself in nearly any scenario. 

The most important thing is to be comfortable with your choice and to practice using it. Remember also that just having a baton isn’t always enough. You must also know how to use it effectively in order to ensure your safety.
