"Increase Your Security Detail"
For that fearless traveler who boldly ventures through dark alleys and dodgy neighborhoods—or bear-infested woods—in search of the next adventure, stay safe with an itty-bitty personal alarm. Barely three inches long and under an ounce, Basu’s battery-operated eAlarm+ comes with a carabiner and clips to a daypack or keychain so you'll always have it close at hand. It’s easy to use too: Pulling out the black pin at the end unleashes a 130-decibel siren that will sound for half an hour, or until the pin goes back in. A reliable companion for late-night city strolls, you can also use it with cords to set a tripwire perimeter around a campsite, or string it up on a hotel-room door for extra protection against intruders.

"Amp up your safety with an emergency alarm"
"OK, so no one wants to imagine worst case scenarios. But when you’re a winter runner, they can happen no matter how well prepared you are. If you find yourself in an unsafe situation, this little alarm can be a lifesaver—literally. It packs a surprising punch as the world’s smallest alarm, and it’s a carabiner, so you can clip it on and get moving."
"The battery-powered BASU eAlarm rings when the back plug is detached from the fob, letting out a loud siren."Not only does it alert others, but it's preventative in that the attacker is also caught off guard," said Mya Papolu, spokeswoman for BASU.com.
The alarm is another tool for students, especially women, to protect themselves.

"Just two weeks after moving to San Francisco, I was mugged in broad daylight down the street from my office in downtown. I was texting while walking (something I should really stop doing) when all of a sudden, my phone was snatched out of my hands by one person while someone else was pulling my hair from behind to keep me from going after them. It was quite the initiation to the city. Of course, after telling my dad what had just happened, he overnight shipped a book to me called The Gift of Fear: And Other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence and lectured me about being aware of my surroundings.
In response to the incident and especially since I was living alone in a brand-new city, I bought a bottle of pepper spray to add to my keychain. I had grown so paranoid over the upcoming weeks that I had walked around with my finger on the trigger in my pocket so that I'd be ready for anything. But I realized that if I were to be attacked under any other circumstances, I'd have to reach into my purse, unlock the bottle, and make sure I was aiming away from my own face. Pepper spray isn't always that practical in the face of emergency because when do we have enough time to complete all those steps?
So when I heard about the Basu eAlarm as the modern pepper spray, I knew I had to try it out for both my safety and for my parents' peace of mind. The tiny alarm hooks onto your keychain and can be used as a crime deterrent, animal repellent, rescue signal, and intrusion alert. All you have to do is pull the pin off the top and an alarm immediately goes off. I tested it out the other day and let me tell you, this thing is loud. I suggest doing it inside your home with the pin ready to be capped back on, maybe even with some earplugs, because the sound definitely made my ears ring. If you don't replace the top, the alarm will continue to go off for 30 minutes, which is about the length of its battery life. The pin is easily removable but secure enough that you won't have to worry about accidentally setting it off. It's also just as simple to close.
The eAlarm can be used when exploring outdoors to scare off animals or as an SOS signal in case you get lost. And the best part is that you're allowed to bring it with you past security, whether you're going to a concert or boarding a plane. A couple of my coworkers who already own one love it for that very reason, and now I completely understand why the Basu eAlarm is much more reliable than traditional pepper spray."
How This Tiny Device is Potentially Saving Millions of Lives...
Inspired by the U.S. Military, the eAlarm uses ear piercing sound to deter criminals and is quickly becoming one of the most sought after safety devices in America. At 120-130 dB, the sound is so loud that it has been compared to the same loudness as a football stadium or a military fighter jet taking off.
Unlike pepper spray, the eAlarm is legal to carry everywhere (even on airplanes!) and is a very safe method of self-defense. The best part is that it requires no training or skill to operate, and can be used by anyone regardless of age or physical ability, making it an ideal choice for children or seniors alike.
While the eAlarm was originally made to protect runners and college students, massive orders are coming in from seniors everywhere, male and female. It is quickly becoming the most popular gift idea of 2019.
