The Assistor creates a NEW self defense weapon with 3 modes of escalation/de-escalation. The most lethal of the 3 is the implementation of a spray strike, spray strike pattern repeated. An aggressive subject cannot effectively block both a stream of OC to the face and a baton strike/jab to the body or limbs, giving even the smallest officer a serious advantage. The Assistor works with many standard OC sizes and formulations up to 35 grams (60 shots) the cap screws off, the canister drops in, the thumb port allows access to the actuator which is ergonomically located on the baton handle in a natural spray and baton grip position. No special training is needed, officers need only use their current OC and Baton training methods but now they can be combined if needed to be more effective. A glass breaking cap is included free The replacement handle will replace any current handle on the market.
It overcomes all past concerns of a "combination" baton. -It allows OC activation from the ready position (very natural, very ergonomic) -It DOES NOT require a proprietary canister (choose your preferred OC formula/manufacturer) -It can replace all current side handles in under 1 minute. -It can be purchased alone or on our expandable side-handle baton. -It creates a 3rd NEW and effective non-lethal-option (explained in General Information) while still allowing common OC/Baton methods to be used. -It allows the subject the option to comply after being sprayed, avoiding a strike while the officer maintains "Officer Safety" from an advance with the baton.
