To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I received the personal alarms in good condition and on time. I couldn’t resist testing them without warning my husband or dog, they were both rudely shocked by the loud sheik the alarm! Luckily I haven’t had the need to test the effectiveness of the alarm in scaring off any attackers, but it’s pretty loud. Hopefully the shock value would buy you a second to get away, or even better to scare the attacker away!
This is a great idea, the alarm is loud and serves its purpose. On a negative note, I had to twist and pull the pin out for the alarm to work. The pin does not come out easily as I had hoped it would if i ever have to use it in a dangerous situation.
Alarm is very loud and hurts when you’re close by which is perfect for it’s purpose. I haven’t used the LED light at night but when I tried it during the day it’s pretty intense and can easily blind someone for a couple of minutes.
I gave this product 4 stars because one of the alarms didn’t work :(
I haven't had to use one of these in an actual emergency, and can't speak to the longevity of the product or battery life, but these are handy little devices to keep on your keychain and are pretty loud. The flashlight also comes in handy. The 5 pack is a good deal and I've already handed out a few of them to friends and family.
I just got these and instantly wanted to test it out.. I like the flash light, and the noise is holy cow loud which is amazing for what the purpose of this is. The one downside, the “wrist strap” is not designed for an adult wrist. So you have the option of looping through your pants belt loop or putting it on a key chain. I wish the strap was a tad bigger and that you could cinch down on it to fit any size wrist. Hopefully my kids and I won’t have to use it ever but at least knowing that we have another layer of protection when we are out is nice. It will definitely be loud enough to alert other people around you to what is happening or hopefully deter an attacker from following through.
VERY loud. good to have when walking alone, just pull out handle to start alarm. I tend to fall and I have yet to really need it but I feel safe when I have it. Only issue is I cannot change batteries with hands to stiff. This is the second time I have ordered these, my friends keep taking one when they see it on my purse.
Arrived a head of original schedule. Four of 5 all worked well. The 5th failed to work. The led light worked so battery seemed ok. Considering the price not worth going through a return. Dropping off etc. Some one at the factory was having a bad hair day I guess. Had all 5 worked a 5 star for all.
I thought these would be louder but they're probably loud enough to get someone's attention. The strap connected to the pull out pin could be a problem if it caught on something accidentally which I can imagine doing very easily.
