The Rothco expandable baton with detachable side handle provides a far greater number of options when dealing with an emergency versus a typical straight baton. The detachable side handle allows user to make the decision on what necessary measures need to be taken during an attack. A straight baton offers more offensive tactics, perhaps stopping a rabid dog from attacking a family member or pet. The expandable baton opens with a flick of the wrist and its friction locking system will lock the baton firmly into place. The optional side handle provides a larger number of defensive techniques to protect yourself from being attacked. The side handle will prevent your baton from rolling away when dropped and can even deliver a stronger strike with the right technique than a typical straight baton. The aluminum design is light weight and durable for defending yourself and loved ones with rubberized handles to prevent the baton slipping out of your hands.

Broke tonight

The small one lasted 11 months. Just cracked all the way through. The medium and large wheels are still ok. Can’t recommend because the small was my favorite and it didn’t last.


After hearing about the issues Mr David had we had a new unit sent his way as his order was under warranty. We show the item as being delivered on 2/20, we followed up with Mr David on 2/22 and 2/23 to confirm delivery but were unable to get ahold of him. We hope he enjoys his new item and we will gladly help if he needs anything else.

Not exactly what I had in mind.

I really thought it would be just like a toy light saber, flick it hard enough to extend it for reach. Nope, not like that at all. You awkwardly and manual extend it yourself. Overall I'll give it 4 stars for lightweight, sturdiness and reach.

Only one of its kind

I've had a similar (non-tonfa) version of this baton for over a decade. I took it to Iraq with me. During our downtime, I had the shop make a replacement bottom cap screw with threads on both sides so I could attach a couple together when I got home. In the many years since then, I've been completely unable to find another like it anywhere. Meanwhile, I find this with the optional tonfa handle and it fits perfectly. I even decided to leave the handle attached because it means that the baton is full tonfa sized when collapsed and can still fully deploy both ends with a simple spin. The best part of this slip-ring locking style of baton is the ability to "muzzle strike" without it collapsing and taking the weapon out of commission for a moment. It may not fold down as small as commonly carried police style batons, but it allows much more versatility. Your shop is the only place I've been able to find this. I can't thank you enough

This is BY FAR my most favorite Baton that I purchased on this website. I have purchased 3 other Expandable Friction Lock Batons. Now I wish I had purchased this one first because I would have ordered a total of 4 of these. This Batons extends and locks into place by an internal mechanism. To Collapse the Baton you Lift the ring mechanism and the extended piece falls easily back into the shaft. It comes out with a flick of the wrist or you can must pull it out. This Baton is my most favorite. Its affordable and strong. Works great. I just wish it was 26" insteaqd of 21" but otherwise it's perfect.


Very strong and durable product and very easy to put the side handle on and take back off again.
