Self-Defense: Safety Kits - Keeping Your Daughter Safe At College

June 30, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 227

Every fall millions of parents and millions of high school graduates bristle with excitement at the thought of going to college. To this day I'm not sure whether it's the thrill of getting away from mom and dad or the thought of being on their own with wonderful new adventures. But no matter which, the energy and excitement levels are high.

The parents worry about the safety of their daughters while away at college. For those parents who are under the mistaken impression that college campuses and the surrounding areas are safe havens, here's a wake-up call. College campuses are actually magnets for predators that prey on coeds who are unsuspecting of the dangers that lurk on and off campus.

What can parents do? The first thing they can do is take some preemptive steps and get their daughters some self-defense and home security products to protect them in their dorm rooms and on campus.

There is a package of products that are specifically designed for women in their personal safety and personal security while in a dorm room or an apartment on or off campus. It includes several home security devices like a door stop alarm that sounds a 120 dB alarm when someone tries to enter a room and a motion activated portable alarm.

It also has a personal alarm and a book diversion safe to hide valuables in your room. This kit comes with an instructional DVD demonstrating how to use each product. And perhaps the most valuable things in the kit are five reports on safety that will help keep your daughter safe. Examples are a report on how to select a safe apartment, five steps to a safer apartment, how to prevent and handle burglaries and two more reports.

The second package of products is designed more for Apartment Living Safety, and many young women who go to college live in off-campus apartments. The kit includes all the same reports mentioned above and a DVD on how to use all the products in the kit which include a motion activated alarm, a glass breakage alarm, two magnetic door alarms, the door stop alarm, a wall mounted pepper spray and a diversion safe to hide valuables in your apartment.

All the products in these packages are nonlethal in nature and are legal in every state in the country. Why take a chance with your daughter's personal safety and personal security?

The College Safety Kit can help protect your daughter in her dorm room and on and off campus.

The Home Security Superstore is one of the oldest and largest independent distributors of high quality home security, surveillance, spy, self-defense, survival and safety products. We carry a wide range of self-defense products including tasers, stun guns, pepper sprays and other nonlethal weapons that can save your life in the event of an attack.
