About Pepper Spray

Pepper spray is convenient, effective, and easy to keep hidden until you need it. The Home Security Superstore carries OC spray products from well-respected brands like Fox Labs Streetwise and Mace.

Pepper spray is legal in all 50 states, but there may be restrictions on how and where you can carry it. Check your local laws before purchasing or carrying pepper spray.

Pepper spray works by releasing Oleoresin Capsicum (OC), which causes an attacker's eye veins and mucous membranes to swell, causing intense discomfort and immobility. The effects can last for up to an hour which gives you plenty of time to make it to a safer place.

Keychain sprays mean you never forget your OC spray at home, while a jogger spray canister allows you to seamlessly take it with you on your run. We’ve even got pink spray so you can stay protected in style!

If you’re protected with jogger’s spray, you may feel a lot better about exercising outdoors. It will empower you if you live alone, making parking down the street seem less ominous. Let’s take a look at some of the most common uses for mace spray:

What is OC Spray?

OC spray, often referred to as pepper spray or mace spray, is a non-lethal personal defense weapon that uses the active ingredient Oleoresin Capsicum. This chemical compound is derived from hot peppers and is known for its intense burning sensation when it comes in contact with skin and mucous membranes. OC spray is designed to incapacitate an attacker by causing temporary pain, inflammation, and disorientation. It comes in various forms such as keychain sprays, jogger sprays, and larger canisters for home or car defense.

How does OC Spray work?

When sprayed into the eyes and face of an attacker, OC spray causes the blood vessels and mucous membranes to swell, making it difficult for them to see and breathe. This intense discomfort can last up to an hour, giving the victim enough time to escape or seek help. OC spray also causes temporary blindness, which can disorientate the attacker and give the victim a chance to flee.

OC Spray On-the-Go:
A spray keychain or jogger OC spray are small, handheld options great for use while you’re away from home. They can be handled by anyone, no expertise required. A personal security protection system that includes OC Spray will give you an advantage.

What is Mace Spray?

Mace spray is a type of OC spray that uses a different active ingredient, called phenacyl chloride. Similar to OC spray, it causes intense burning and irritation when sprayed onto the eyes and face of an attacker. Mace spray was first developed as a defense weapon in the 1960s and is still used today for personal protection. It comes in different forms including keychain sprays and larger canisters for home or car defense.

Using Mace Spray for Home Protection:
Home invasions are one of the most frightening things that can happen to a family. A can of mace pepper spray by the bed can give you and your family time to escape and call for help.

Workplace Protection:
If you work late or in an isolated area, having a can of OC Spray or Mace on your desk or in your purse can give you some peace of mind.

Lonely Walks:
Walking to your car in a dark parking lot or through a secluded park can be scary. A can of self-defense pepper spray will give you the ability to defend yourself if needed and help you get to safety.

Animal Repellent:
Pepper spray or mace spray is also good for camping. Check out our animal repellents to keep in the tent in case a threat approaches while you sleep. Animal repellents can also stop an attacking dog.

Keep a Can of Pepper Spray in the Car
If you’re ever carjacked or attacked while stopped at a light, having a can of Mace or OC Spray close by can help you get away and get to safety.

What is Mace?
Mace® is actually a brand of pepper spray. Mace® Brand pepper spray is created with OC, Oleoresin Capsicum. This is a derivative of chili peppers and it’s an inflammatory agent. When this comes in contact with someone’s eyes, nose, or throat, it swells the mucous membranes. This swelling makes it difficult to breathe and see and can cause burning and watering of the eyes.

MACE® Throwing Grenades for Your Home: Some of our best mace spray for sale doesn’t require you to get close to the chemical. A throwing grenade can be tossed toward an approaching animal or into a room with a burglar while you run in the other direction for your safety.
