For Security Sake

  • Doxey Park Shooting Leaves One Injured And One Dead

    Smoking gun

    Manteca is a city in San Joaquin County, California. I have lived here all my life and have seen the city population grow from less than 8,000 people to near 75,000 people today.

    We enjoy a low crime rate here, which is amazing to me considering we live 12 miles south of Stockton, California; a city with a high crime rate. I have to credit the Manteca police department for their diligence and proactive ideas to help keep crime down. Unfortunately, crime does happen here, as it does everywhere.

    What makes this time in Manteca history most unusual is that there have been two shootings near city parks and elementary schools within two and a half weeks of each other. This article is about the second shooting.

    While awake and reading in the very early morning of Labor Day, September 1st, 2014, I heard a series of shots loud enough to startle my wife awake. A few minutes later, sirens approached and I knew this was not leftover fireworks.


    A couple of blocks north of our home is Doxey Park, which is in a Northern Manteca middle class neighborhood. It was and still is known as a very nice and friendly park. Three sides of this block long park are single family homes. Adjacent to the west end of the park is George McParland Elementary school, and East Union High school sits just a few blocks the east.

    Park sign playground background

    Students from both schools walk through and past this park everyday and it is not uncommon to see people in the park with their children playing sports or on the playground equipment. I have even seen a few students settle their differences in the park after school with a small crowd of fellow students eagerly watching. Most of the time these clashes didn’t get much further than an argument before the police arrived. Only a few people are sometimes seen in the park at very late hours of the night, but the first hour of this Labor Day morning shocked and changed this neighborhood.

    What I didn’t hear that morning was people arguing. That argument led to the series of gunshots I had heard. When it was over, a 16 year old boy lay dying next to a picnic table and a 19 year old man that had been shot was near a park sign. At the time of this writing, no suspect information has been released to the public.

    Memorial oneMemorial twoMemorial tree

    Within two days, a memorial of candles; flowers; balloons; liquor bottles; hats; ribbons; sunglasses; crosses; and writings to the 16 year old victim were found on two picnic tables and a tree. It appeared to me that he was well known and liked.

    This was a tragedy that not only affected the victim’s family, friends, and former students, but it has created a great amount of fear for parents in this neighborhood.

    Social media has exploded with comments placing blame, including the victim; victim’s family; police department response times; and poor city government. Only a few of the comments were ideas to combat the problem so this type of incident might not happen again.

    What about the city government and police department?:

    As of November of 2013, Manteca had about 1.21 police officers per thousand population and emergency response times were about 3 minutes. Not bad for a police department that lost 15% of its staff in 2009, when the economy tanked and the city was forced to make cuts. In fact, no city the size of Manteca or larger in San Joaquin county, has a better emergency response time.

    Manteca is home to more than 50 public parks that span over 400 acres. These parks are included in an area of almost 18 square miles. How does an under staffed police department handle calls for service; make arrests; process those arrestees; write reports on those arrests and calls for service, and actively patrol every area of the city. The answer is obvious. They can’t without our help.

    What can we do to help?


    No one wants to find out that their child was involved or near an incident like this, but kids are drawn to fights as much as they are drawn to parties. Every chance you get, show your children written evidence of shootings. Guns will never go away and no law is going to stop anyone from getting one if they really want it. It’s a good bet that if a bunch of kids, (yes kids; Gang members are as young as 12 years old or younger) hang around together; at least one will have access to a weapon that they will tend to show off.

    Your kids will retain what you show them and then it will be their choice what to do with that information. The more stories they see and hear about, the better chance their feeling of it won’t happen to me may dissolve some. The idea is to get them to either tell someone about weapons they find out about, or to stay away from people involved with them.

    As examples:   Did you know about the shooting two weeks before this one at another park mentioned above. I can think of a local party shooting, numerous drive by shootings and a fight that resulted in the victim being buried by his friends so they wouldn’t get caught after they killed him. 12 miles north of us is Stockton. They tend to have shootings weekly there, and suspects from there come here to visit and do crime. What can you recall in your area? Tell and if possible show your kids. Make them aware and teach them that it is not a good thing to be around and that it can happen in your area.

    Arguments between friends happen all the time and this type of crime happens more often than you might think. Think I’m wrong; research it.  Everyone involved in this week’s incident could have known each other and if that’s true they probably all knew about the gun(s).

    Report Crimes:

    Even at 1am in the morning, there were witnesses to what was happening. An argument in a park is a red flag and you should call 911. Keep yourself safe and give as much information as possible.  Don’t get discouraged by the number of questions and the time it takes to give information to the dispatcher. Police are on the way and they need to know the information for the safety of everyone.

    As soon as possible write down what you heard and saw. It is a fact that if you don’t take notes, you may not remember details that are important to the investigation.

    Start a Neighborhood Watch:

    Watch out for each other and help move crime out of your neighborhood. Almost all police departments can help you set up a neighborhood watch program.

    Use Cameras:  

    It is not a good idea for you to stand out and obviously record what is going on, but today in many crimes that is exactly what happens. Cell phones have made it very easy to do and surveillance systems that can see at night and record 24hrs a day are very valuable in identifying suspects and vehicles.

    Many cases have been solved because a home surveillance camera could see the street and sidewalk. The crime could have been blocks away, but the suspect(s) and or vehicle(s) may have driven by.

    Stockton bank robbery suspect drop off vehicle

    One example of this is a recent bank robbery in Stockton, California. A hostage was killed in the chase when a suspect used her as a shield.  A recorded surveillance video of the car that dropped the suspects off at the bank was distributed to the media, resulting in it quickly being located.

    If you have a system and it might have something valuable for an investigation, check your recordings. If you find something, let the police detective handling the case know and save the video.

    If you are considering installing a system, try to be as high a quality as possible, because the better the quality, the better the picture. You can buy complete systems, or start with a Professional Camera and Digital Video Recorder (DVR). Many DVRs now record to hard drive automatically; no tape to change. When the drive fills up, they start to record over what is already there. To save the video, it can be transferred to your personal computer and then to compact disk, thumb drive, or even tape.

    The police need us. Don’t be afraid to help stop the violence by reporting crime. It could even result in a crime stopper reward.   This case is still under investigation. We will update this blog article when and if suspect information is released by the police department.

    Be safe out there.

  • Attention Target Shoppers; Don't be a victim twice!

    ATT Target Shoppers

    It has been months since Target information was hacked, putting credit card information in the hands of criminals. Because of this breach and others like it at different businesses all over the country, scammers are still after your information via email and phone calls.

    As you have probably heard, there was a card data breach at Target stores in the US in late 2013. Financial institutions like Financial Center have been contacting their affected cardholders alerting them to the breach. Unfortunately, scammers have been contacting consumers, too, posing as Target and other institutions. At times, it can be difficult to tell a legitimate email from a fake one. Here are some tips for you to follow, to help ensure you don't fall victim to one of these scam emails:


    • If you get an email that is supposedly from Target, don't click on links within the email. Instead, you can go directly to the trusted website that the email is directing you to visit (such as the FTC and the national credit bureaus' websites).


    • This is a good practice to apply to all emails that you receive. Never provide your account or personal identifying information in an email. This is also a good tip to follow with phone calls (unless you initiated the phone call to a legitimate phone number).


    • Vary your password amongst your accounts; this way, if a scammer does gain access to one account, your other logins remain safe.


    • Monitor your accounts throughout the month and report any unknown transactions.


    • And don't forget to monitor your credit report, too. Consumers have access to free credit reports from each of the three national credit bureaus on an annual basis through AnnualCreditReport.com.


    Thanks to Financial Center Credit Union in Stockton, California for the alert.

  • What Is This Electronic Barking WatchDog Alarm?

    Updated 10-24-2016.

    It is known that in most cases, crooks are looking for an easy target to break into. Having a large dog in the home takes that ease away from a thief and he is likely to look elsewhere for an easier home or office to break into. Using an electronic version of a dog barking gives you the protection without having to care for a real dog.

    I retired from our local police department in 2009 and I decided to continue to help people live safer and more secure lives. I wanted to do this by using information and selling affordable products on the internet.

    While I was searching I saw adds for Electronic Barking Dog Alarms and I wondered what they were and how they worked. I researched what the barking watchdog alarm was all about and checked for the best for my product list.

    I found a number of electronic barking watchdog alarms for people that don't want the worry of caring for a live dog.  I researched different types of barking alarms and ultimately chose what is the best option for home and office security.

    To back up a little; there are a number of barking alarms on the market, including a type that hangs on a door knob and senses when the knob is touched.  The door knob must be metal and not all knobs are the type you can easily hang the product on. Another type attaches to a door brace and barks if the door is shaken or pushed. Others are similar to the unit I found to be the best, however none of these featured a remote control and you can't add sensors to the expand their function.

    In 2010, I found that the best barking dog alarm is made under the brand name of HomeSafe and in Late 2013, this same identical unit became available under the brand name of StreetWise and later another brand of SafeFamilyLife. These professional units use microwave radar technology to see through a wood; glass; brick; plastic; and more. They are designed to be placed inside a building and have a five inch speaker with enough wattage to sound like a real dog from outside. It is real enough that Animal Control officers have been known to come to an owner's  home to ask if their dog had a license. No license is needed for this electronic dog.

    These alarms can not see through metal, but the alarm can be placed at an angle around the metal. Add on sensors can also be used to get around any metal that could block the microwave sensor in the main unit. Some can sense movement before the protected area is even reached. Settings on the main unit include barking, chime, or siren and arming the alarm can be done on the main unit, or with an included remote control.

    Additional remote controls and sensors are a unique feature that I found only on the HomeSafe SafeFamilyLife and StreetWise units. These main units can be expanded by adding HomeSafe wireless remote controls, movement sensors, and door/vibration sensors. The door sensor can even be expanded to windows and has its own switchable small siren. A mix of up to sixteen of these sensors and/or remote controls can be added to these three brands of Barking Dog Alarms.

    These sensors can be added wirelessly to rooms outside the detection area of the main barking dog alarm unit and the adjustable motion sensor can be mounted outside at a considerable distance from the main unit. They are matched to the barking dog alarm to make a complete closed system of protection. Even if your door or wall is made of metal, these sensors can be used to get around that problem.

    We use our system to announce that someone is near our door even if we are at home. This lets the outsider know that there is protection inside and that we have been alerted.

    Each of these units include a remote control. This allows you to arm and disarm the alarm from anywhere within 20 to 60 feet or more of the main unit. There is also a panic button on this remote control. When pushed the alarm goes into a siren alarm.

    These are great barking dog units and there is no walking, extra cost for feeding, or cleanup involved.

  • Serial Killers In Our Backyard



    In 1984 I was a detective investigating crimes against persons. By 1987, I was A Police Patrol Sergeant in in A San Joaquin County California city named Manteca. I can remember a number of missing person reports in between those years. While we receive missing person reports often, these suspicious ones were all from the San Joaquin County Valley, California and north county detectives had leads that pointed to murder of a few of them. Our area had a low crime rate and serial killers in our backyard were not the first thought that came to mind.

    Detectives focused on two suspects;  Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog. These two suspects were local boyhood friends and as they grew older became involved with drugs. As the investigation continued into 1999, evidenced showed they were into methamphetamine and when their murder arrests occurred, these two suspects were named by the media as the "Speed Freak killers". It is believed that the two friends went on a 20 year killing spree, with most of the victims coming from our backyard area (San Joaquin County California). These killers were able to talk victims (friends and strangers) into going with them willingly, never to be seen alive again.

    After some diligent detective work, these two killers were arrested and brought to trial. Both were convicted and received what was thought to be justice for once. Shermantine was sentenced to death and currently is in prison death row. Herzog received a 78 year sentence that was overturned by the court of appeals after he served fourteen years. In 2010 Herzog was released on parole and was living in a trailer outside of the prison gates in Lassen County, California.

    That didn't sit well with Shermantine who was now 45 years old. Shermantine blamed the killings on Herzog, with Shermantine admitting to help dispose of the bodies. He began to hint that he would rat out his friend by showing where some of the bodies were. A Sacramento, California bounty hunter offered Shermintine money reported to be between $15,000 and $30,000 to disclose body locations. The bounty hunter also contacted Herzog with that information. A few days later Herzog committed suicide, at the age of 46.

    February 2012, after some law enforcement bickering from the San Joaquin County Sherriff about jurisdiction issues, Shermantine drew maps that led to at least four different areas that he said bodies are located. So far remains have been found on former Shermintine family property, and a capped well in San Joaquin County. It is reported that these two serial killers could be responsible for more than 30 murders. As of February 15, 2012 the San Joaquin county sheriff has received more than 65 phone calls hoping they can find closure with the location of missing loved ones.

    This was shocking to all living in the area. No one wants to believe that a crime like this happen where they live. The fact is that these types of crimes have and do happen in the area you live in too. You just don't know about it. It has to be something special before the media picks it up for sure. My adult kids were in grammar school when these crimes above were happening. They only knew about it because of the current news about the bodies being located.

    We live in what I believe is the greatest country in the world. But don't be fooled that you or your family can't be a victim.

    Teach your kids about safety. Tell them about this case and they just might think that it can happen to them.

  • Protect Your Kids From Your Swimming Pool With A Pool Alarm

    POOLALARM ForSecuritySake (4)fUpdated 03-27-2017

    This is a true story. The child involved in this tragic event was from my co-worker's immediate family.

    They thought they did all the right things. They checked out the licensed daycare home, saw that the swimming pool had a fence and a locked gate, but did not know that the toddler could get to the pool from a sliding glass door. They also did not know that drowning is the number one cause of accidental death of children ages one through four in California.

    The daycare owner knew her pool was safe, but what she didn't know is it only takes a few seconds to lose track of a toddler, especially when your distracted. So while on a five minute phone call, the toddler slipped through the open sliding glass door and fell into the pool.

    The pool had safety measures, but did not have a cover or pool alarm. The Daycare owner found the child in the pool, but it was too late.

    A pool alarm would have made the difference in this case, because it would have sounded an alarm inside the home that some one had fallen into the pool.ForSecuritySakepoolalarm

    Kids naturally gravitate to a pool. This photograph of my two year old grandson is not staged (We will call him Curious George).  We were eating during a  backyard party and the host's pool was closed for dinner. George had been caught five minutes before trying to get around the fence gate by opening it from the inside. After being warned not to attempt this, he left to get a drink and when he thought he could get away with it, here he is trying again. The gate would not open, but the point here is kids don't know danger and will try not to get caught.

    Before retirement, while working on Patrol, I received possible drowning in pool calls every year.  Your heart sinks even lower when the dispatch includes the word child. You think to yourself that if you can get there faster, this one my be saved. The lucky ones had parents or another person present that knew CPR, however in most calls this just was not the case.

    Please!, if you have a pool, know CPR. There should be clases put on by your local jurisdiction.

    Take all the steps you can to protect your children from your swimming pool with fences, covers, locks, and with a pool alarm. We offer one here at ForSecuritySake that works well for in ground pools and there are many others in pool stores and on the Internet.

  • Child Internet Safety Tips For Parents From The FBI

    Updated 05-20-16

    When I was growing up, the new electronic contraption that captured my attention, so mom could have some time and space, was the television. By the time I was 10 years old our one home television was even in color. I learned a lot from TV and still do. My children had the same experience, but by the time they were ten years old, the Internet was beginning to expand rapidly.

    Computers are interactive and have overcome the TV as the favorite gadget of children. Today there are numerous computers, some are called smart cellular phones, all with the ability to access the Internet.

    There are hand held electronic games, game consoles, desk tops, laptops, minis, tablets and even the new TVs that can interact with the Internet.

    Over the years, parents have asked the question of how they can implement Internet Safety while their children surf.

    Since computers are in our lives and a necessity at times, it is unreasonable to take computers away from our kids. Although we want to, no one can stand by their side and help with school work and watch what they see on the Internet all the time. All we can do is try to protect them the same as with any other life experiences.

    We trust our children to do the right thing, but the problem is that no matter what their age, they often do not understand that they can get themselves into trouble until it is too late.  When the Internet is involved, there are scam artists out there that specialize in exploiting children.

    Parents sometimes don't know all the threats that are out there in the Internet Cloud. The FBI has a PDF printable document titled A Parent's Guide to Internet Safety. The guide includes information on:

    . Definitions of areas your child may surf

    . How predators engage in conversation with children

    . What signs to look for that tend to show your child is at risk

    . What to do if you suspect your child has been contacted by a predator

    . An area of frequently asked questions

    . And much more

  • Who Is Watching

    Phone Cameras ForSecuritySakeaHave you ever  talked to someone that is just a little paranoid about big brother watching us?  They will talk for hours about a chip camera that can see you from your TV set, drones that fly by, satellites, and black ops helicopters all watching your every move.

    It is a fact that we are being watched and recorded, but most of the photos and recordings being made today are not by the people you think of?

    If you drive down the road, shop in a mall or store, eat in a restaurant, drink in a bar, play in casino or a park, ride in an airplane, train, bus, taxi, or go to the movies, there is a good chance you are being watched and recorded on a camera system. So who is watching?

    It used to be that most recordings posted to the Internet were form systems designed to protect us from traffic collisions, burglary, robbery, and general street crimes. Due to the economy these systems are being expanded, to replace laid off employees that used to have the job of watching.  Often these photos and videos are still viewed at Law Enforcement agencies, TV stations and the home storage servers . Today there are many more reasons that photos and videos can be found on the Internet and they are of you and your family for anyone to see.

    Think about this growing threat to privacy and your security:

    According to World Telecommunications; as of 2011, it is estimated that there are close to 7 billion people in the world. One third of the population use the Internet and 45% of them are under the age of 25.  There are 6 billion mobile-cellular subscriptions and almost 1.2 billion have mobile broadband subscriptions that give wireless Internet anywhere cellular towers support it.

    Lyra Research lists; as of 2010, it is estimated that there will be more than 1.5 billion camera phones in circulation. Today's versions of these phones take high quality pictures and high definition video. Camera phone users have instant access to these devices to photograph and record anything they want.

    Many of the photos from these are uploaded to social networking, TV stations, blogs, and other Internet storage sites. A reported FaceBook engineer wrote on Quora.com; that there are over 200 million photographs uploaded to FaceBook every day, or 6 billion a month.

    Videos are also uploaded to social networking sites, TV stations blogs and other Internet storage sites. According to Yahoo answers; as of 2009 there were about 200,000 videos uploaded to YouTube every day. It would take 600 years to watch all of the video on site at the time.

    Do you use one of these social networking sites to share your personal information and do you have photos or videos that connect to your information?  Try running your name in a Google Search and use photo in the search term. Even though security is turned on, many times a profile photo will show up in the search. Friends and friends of friends may show up also.

    4G cellular service is now the norm and faster service is on the horizon. With these faster services, the big advertisements of camera phones today are the ability to stream movies and to stream photos and videos live! You can already see it work on local TV news when you hear phone quality sound of the reporter with jumpy hand held video. You will start to see more live events on TV stations being streamed form someone that just happens to be there at the time.

    Can big brother use these images, videos and information. The answer is yes and no. There are rules of law that have to do with expectation of privacy; meaning the general public would feel that they are in an area of expected privacy. But since society now allows and expects to carry and use camera phones anywhere, what happens to our expectation of privacy?  Only the courts will be able to figure that out in the years to come. My bet is that right now the answer in most cases is yes and privacy expectation will slowly diminish as we get even more comfortable watching each other.

    Can crooks and predators use the information. It is reported everyday that they do.

    So what do you do to protect your family and yourself For Security Sake?

    Limit the information you give out on the Internet and social networks. If you or a friend puts it out there, it will be seen and possibly used.

    Join our news letter to receive information on products that can help you with protection and safety.

    And remember everything you do in a place where there are other people has the likelihood of being recorded. Someone holding a cell phone pointed in your direction does not always mean they are texting.


    Be safe out there!







  • Carrying a Stun Gun or Taser for Protection in your RV

    Updated 05-20-16

    One of the first self defense weapons thought of while on the road is a hand gun. I hate having to use a gun for self protection for any reason and I base this on just two main reasons of which you can add a large number of sub-reasons:

    1. With one's use, the result is often final.

    2. No matter what, if you have to use one, your life is changed forever.

    Just look at current news regarding the use of a gun and you will see point #2 above.

    Don't get me wrong; when I was working as a police detective and later as a Sergeant,  there were times I had been glad to have one. In fact I felt like something was missing if I didn't have one with me. But I also remember when one was used off duty, the person that had to use it, went under much more scrutiny and stress.

    I would recommend  that  non-lethal self defense weapons be used instead.

    With that said, I would like to move on to carrying a Stun Gun or Taser for protection in your RV.

    You can have a gun in your home and it is thought of in California, on a case by case bases, that when you live in your RV, it is considered your home for that period of time.  Although this may be true, when you cross state lines, it may well not be true.

    On the other hand,  Stun Guns are legal to carry in California almost anywhere and when you cross state lines they are most often also legal there.

    Plan ahead of time and check the laws in states and cities you plan to visit. (we have a starting point here)

    I just returned from a trip in my Fifth Wheel and although I carry Pepper Spray and Stun Gun Taser, I really had not thought much of how I might need it. But on this trip something happened that made me rethink that.

    It was a normal family gathering. We had a number of family members join us for a few days and after they left, we stayed a couple of extra days to have to ourselves and to clean up the campsite area. Since this is the beginning of the camping season not many campers stay due to school, work, or other obligations.  This trip was similar, except that only one other camper was in our campground area and he was unique to say the least.

    During the day he was always by himself and was either gone in his car or in his camp site.  However at night, he went into a behavior I can only describe as weird.

    There is nothing illegal about singing at the top of the lungs , dancing, or constant walking to and from the campground restroom, but it made us take notice. It was the next thing that made me think defense is something we needed to plan for.

    This camper drove around the campsites in his car at night and would stop and parked on the road near our campsite ten to fifteen minutes each time. He never left his car, but there was no reason to just sit there. There is nothing illegal about this, but it does give an uneasy feeling. And when it is during sleep time in a park full of animal and bird noises, it gets hard to sleep without a plan of some type.

    Here are some tips that I use for myself to make it a little safer and to help protect yourself and family in an RV.

    Have a Stun Gun, Taser, or Pepper Spray handy at all times. Know how to use them before you need them.

    RVs have a number of ways to get out, but only one or two doors for easy entry. Keep them closed, locked and never open them unless you know who is on the other side of the door.

    If you do open the door, have your stun gun Taser in hand at ready if needed. Remember you have the high ground; it will be difficult for someone to climb up in an offensive attack.

    It is our nature to go out to check on things when there is a noise. If at all possible at night, have valuables locked up and wait until the morning. Property can be replaced, a life cannot.

    Why not check? It may not be what you think:

    1. If it is a person and you leave the RV, you have lost your high ground and he, or they may also be armed with a weapon.

    2.  The noise is the unknown. We normally camp in Black Bear country. We see Bears all the time and know what to do if we see one. This time we were in the foot hills just an hour from home. What we did not know was that there had been a Mountain Lion seen several times in our campground area.

    Have a Plan:

    Have a cell phone with you and check to see if you have service where you are camping. If you do, have a plan for someone to call for help if needed. If you don't have service, have a plan to contact someone who knows where you are at planed times. If you miss the contact time, have a plan on what that person will do.

    Planning, practice, and training is a way to take care of problems that may come up ahead of time.

    Why carry Mace® Night Defender Pepper Spray Gel with UV dye ?


    Have you heard this line, or one like it before? “Young people think they are invincible, so nothing bad can happen to them”.  I have heard it in various ways, but I have said it too.


    Since the age of 14 years old, I have seen first hand what can and does happen to people at any age and at any time. That is the age I joined the police cadets and for the next 40 plus years I have gained much experience on the subject.


    So after retirement, I decided to continue my efforts to help people be a little safer and more secure in their daily lives.


    The most unsafe time to walk alone is at night, because this is the time when a large number of people have spare time. They are off work, out of school, and are out looking for fun. While there are all kinds of things to do, many will stop for a drink on the way home and still some others take drugs for whatever reason they can think of. The result of this is people do things at night that most would not do in the daytime. So it is a time when we don't want to be alone, however it is not always possible due to circumstances.


    Don’t have that “it can’t happen to me attitude”. Learn self defense and carry some type of self defense protection. One great product I have found will help you to be safer at night is The Mace® Night Defender Pepper Spray Gel with UV dye


    It is an innovative Gel Pepper Spray product so unique that it is patented.

    With a built-in bright LED Light (33 lux at 1m). The light activates when the cap is lifted. When you hold the unit in the ready position, with your thumb or finger placed on the actuator the light illuminates the area. The LED light also helps to blind an attacker while it gives you an idea where your Pepper Spray is aimed.


    Since the spray is a Gel, instead of a liquid spray, it will spray farther and will stick on contact.


    The mixed in UV dye formula can be used by Law Enforcement to help identify the attacker at a later time.


    This model is great for indoors or outdoors at night, or areas with low-light. It contains 45 grams and sprays up to 10 to 20 short bursts with an effective range of up to 18 feet.
    Batteries for the LED light are included and replaceable.


    Dimensions 4 3/4" x 1 1/2" x 2 1/4"


    Below is a very short video we found that shows the size of this product and how to activate the LED light.


  • The Great Boat Lift of 9-11 Video

    The news always shows the horror of incidents, but show little of the good that happens because of them. In this case, a video production team put together a story about the heroes of the Great Boat Lift of 9-11.

    Not knowing if they were still under attack, but knowing that Lower Manhattan is an island, many boat owner's responded to help the day the towers fell. They came together to evacuate 500,000 plus people that had no way out other than by boat; and they did it in 9 hours.

    Thank you to those who put this 12 minute video together for us to share.
