This isn't a weapon, but rather a way to draw attention to a situation. After all, criminals rely on the element of surprise and isolation. By triggering something that's the equivalent volume of a gunshot, you'll definitely draw eyes to whatever is happening — and possibly scare away a ne'er-do-well in the process. The alarm will continue for 40 minutes on a single charge, and batteries are easily replaceable.

There's also a strobe light built in to light up dark areas, and the flashing will make it easier for bystanders to see what's happening. It's an ideal gift for a single mom or someone heading off to college. What's more, five percent of profits are donated to support women's shelters.

"We live in Los Angeles so it’s important for my elderly mom to be safe and have the necessary tools. When we got the product we tested it out and it was great! It’s easy to pull the latch out and put it back. The sound is very loud and the light flash is extremely bright. She loves it and carries it with her every day," one user said.

Another college student added, "As a college student, I have never felt safer than having this on me. The noise is obnoxiously loud with a light that goes off when pulled. There has been a time or two when my keys fell and it popped open causing the loud noise, but other than that LOVE!"

One of the more than 6,000 five-star reviewers said she used it to scare away coyotes: "This is the second one I have ordered gave my other one to my mum. Love the color (lemon) and the sense of safety I have when I carry around with me. I hike in areas where coyotes are so this will scare them off as well. Clasp it on the side of whatever bag I have with me."

Be safer when you're out alone with this alarm that's sure to draw attention — and will definitely hurt some ears.
