These tools are meant only as a means of self-defense and protection and not intended to be used to kill the attacker even though the f**ker deserves it.
#1. Pepper Spray:
This is the most common known tool for self-defense that is known to incapacitate the attacker. This is ideal for anyone who is walking home alone during nighttime, down a dark street or anywhere deserted. You just have to hold the Pepper spray at arm’s length and spray at the attacker’s face. The effect is instantaneous and will debilitate the assailant for at least 30 minutes. Do make sure that the spraying end is away from your face, as it is possible to spray at yourself accidentally.

#2. Self Defense Key Chain
These cute looking key chains are not something to be played with. This is a discreet and powerful self-defense tool to have in hand (quite literally). It looks like a key chain but comes handy when attacking your assailant. All you have to do is insert your fingers into the circular holes and aim them at the attacker if assaulted.

Tasers and stun guns have to be the coolest self-defense weapon in this list. Tasers and stun guns, each serve a purpose and needs to be chosen wisely depending on your safety needs.

A knife can do a lot of damage, to the perpetrator as well as yourself, so I’m putting at the bottom of the list. Still, this is a cool tool as its compact, lightweight. How cool is it when a seemingly ordinary card transforms into a knife that could very well save your life.
