Promo In Motion: How to Build Your Own Personalized Self-Defense Keychain

Self-Defense Keychain

Self-defense is influenced by personal feelings, experiences, and opinions. What self-defense looks like for you may be completely different from another’s perspective; however, the common goal is to protect yourself. It can be terrifying (and overwhelming at times) to have to prepare for incidents like these, but it is far better to be safe than sorry. In a world that can be so full of beauty, there are a lot of unknowns! Consider the perfect justices for consumers when you are personalizing unique self-defense keychains.

Why A Self-Defense Keychain?

Wristlet keychains are easily one of the most accessible items one can use in an unideal situation. Wherever you go, your keys go too, right (until you lose them, but we have a solution for that, as well)? When you feel a threat, you know you have a defense mechanism handy–quite literally. In a life or death situation, wristlet keychains still allow you to have a full range of motion with no loose ends–unlike lanyards that can feel more restricting and can easily get intertwined. These leave you with both open hands for another resort. With little to no gaps for error, you can safely make your escape with plenty of time to spare!

What Should Come on A Self-Defense Keychain

Travelers Edition 

Are you looking to travel the world? We’ll keep you informed about what’s legal, travel safe, and items that won’t get you hung up in airport security. Here is all you need to know about the things you carry on your self-defense keychain!

Personalized Pepper Sprays:

Pepper spray is legal in all states for defense purposes; however, there are certain restrictions for those with a felony, etc. Pepper spray also passes TSA screenings if left in a 4 fl oz bottle in a checked bag!

As for carrying pepper spray to another country, please note that there may be specific regulations or permits required. Some countries also prohibit this item!


Guardian Angels:

Guardian angels, also known as knuckle strikers, are of great use for hand-to-hand combat. Please notice that these are not always legal, so be sure to do your research beforehand.

No Contact Keychains:

With different strands of Covid-19 popping up and other silent killers, this is a global travelers’ must-have! Protect yourself from germs and bacteria.


Portable Emergency Alarms:

Everyone should carry a portable emergency alarm on their keychain. For every occasion, and no matter the circumstance. These alarms are simple devices that are not made to hurt anyone. Instead, they warn others in the surrounding area that there is danger near or to call for help. These are legal everywhere!


Keychain Pocket Knives:

The US law defines a knife as a weapon; therefore, they are not always permissible in all states. Knives that are typically legal to carry in the states fall under 2.5 inches–pocket knives fall under this category. Pocket knives come in handy as a keychain for defense purposes or as a tool. If you plan to travel with any sharp object, be sure to check them in your luggage bag and not on your carry-on. 

For domestic travel, be sure to check state ownership laws before traveling; otherwise, be sure to check the legal status for foreign countries.

Bluetooth Finders:

Face it, with age we tend to forget things easily. Okay, let’s be honest, at any given time we forget things easily. I mean, just this morning I found my phone in the refrigerator. Nonetheless, the Bluetooth finder tracks material items, along with the whereabouts of people. This could be especially beneficial for families who have concerns about their older loved ones living alone. The elderly make easier targets and are more prone to be victims of attack.

For Children

Children are one of the most vulnerable targets for predators to take advantage of. Please, not only teach your children the signs of risks they may face but also do all you can to keep them prepared for unforeseen circumstances. Here is what they need!

Panic Alarm Keychains For Children:

Panic alarms for children are easy to use. With a simple pull, your child will scare away any threat! This doubles as a LED flashlight, as well.

Even going to the gym after work can be a risk! Attach a light to your keychain and feel at ease when getting your swole on!


Two Way Finders:

First of all, how many of you athletes have lost your keys in the gym or thought you dropped them 5 miles back on your evening run, etc?

First of all, as a night shift worker, you likely have a lot of keys to manage. If you lost your keys, you would be in some trouble.
