This police baton is well worth the money spent. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent review, is the effort it takes to close the baton. At the same time you figure how often are you actually going to use it? Still a fantastic item!

Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? no defects that I have seen
I bought this asp for my gf to carry around in her purse – she sometimes has to work late and is leaving a building in the dark by herself and I wanted to give her something besides pepper spray to ward off delinquents. She loved it, the only downside was she didn’t like the size because “it will only fit in my big purses”. (Leave it to a woman to accessorize a woman to her purse size haha) So I ended up also buying her the cousin of this asp in 18” to fit her smaller purses. Aside from that, the asp is quite sturdy, heavy and looks like it could take a couple good hits to anything solid (wood, brick, rock) before bending/breaking. Hitting people (what its designed for) I have no doubt will not phase this asp. The collapsed lock was a bit stiff, I ended up having to unscrew the back end and adjusting the metal ^ shaped piece which acts as the stopper so it doesn’t accidently extend until you swing it, so it could be extended by someone besides myself (the gf couldn’t extend it easily until I made the adjustment). The friction lock is also very, very tough (its designed to be able to jab/poke in addition to swing and hit) so you actually have to tap it on the floor on its side while rotating to loosen the locks in place before you can turn it vertical and slam it down to get it to collapse. Altogether, well made and something I’d definitely recommend to anyone that wants to protect themselves or a loved one with a less than lethal weapon.
How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate

How do they close? I have tried to twist them in opposite directions.fontok on Jul 16, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
You will have to push down on the smallest part of the metal baton against a hard surface. If you push down straight against the floor the easier it will be to close. If still having a hard time closing. You can try and twist the metal extensions, it will loosen it up a bit.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 18, 2012
