Safety is a concern for all of our customers and that is why we provide the best personal alarms to keep you safe. 

However, what are the differences between the various Walk Easy personal alarms.

Recently there have been a number of high profile attacks on individuals. We know that whether you are walking home from work, out walking your dog, shutting up shop at the end of a long day, or walking home from school, you need a personal alarm that suits your requirements.  

So, we decided to run through every personal alarm that we have so you can make the right decision and stay safe. 

Here are the pros and cons of all the personal attack alarms, otherwise known as rape alarms, we sell at Walk Easy Alarms.  

Canister Personal Alarms 

The canister personal alarms are designed for either continuous single-use when ‘locked on’ or in multiple use of up to 100 short bursts. You can point this device at the assailant acting as an additional visual deterrent to confuse your attacker as well as being released directly at your assailant to prevent an attack. They are ‘in your face’ devices designed to create fear and confusion in the mind of your attacker, making them consider the consequences of their actions and repelling an attack.
