Question: What is oleoresin capsicum (OC)?

Answer: Oleoresin capsicum (OC) is the oil taken from the placenta near the stem of a pepper. Although OC is the active ingredient used in most pepper sprays, the percentage of OC within the formulation does NOT indicate pepper spray strength. The OC percentage only measures the amount of red pepper contained in the pepper spray, not the pungency or effectiveness of the product.


Question: Is key chain pepper spray effective on dogs?

Answer: This product is not registered for use against dogs. The Environmental Protection Agency regulates all products applied to animals. If you are looking for a dog deterrent please check out our Mace Canine Repellent: http://www.spyssafetyproducts.com/mace/mace-outdoor-animal-defense/macer-canine-repellent.html

 

Question: Does the key chain pepper spray come with a holster?

Answer: Yes, the majority of our key chain pepper sprays come with a holster, to prevent it from accidentally being sprayed if you choose to attach it to your keys.

 

Question: What is the best place to carry key chain pepper spray?

Answer: Given that this pepper spray comes on a key chain, it is most ideal to carry it on the same key chain as your keys. It will be more convenient this way, and you will also be able to access it faster in a dangerous situation, seeing as a large number of assaults occur in parking lots.

 

Question: What is the shelf life for pepper spray?

Answer: The majority of pepper sprays have a 2 year shelf life; after that, the pepper spray will have expired.

 

Question: How old do you have to be to purchase and possess pepper spray?

Answer: 18 is the minimum age to purchase and possess pepper spray.

 

Question: Is this product flammable?

Answer: Whether the spray is flammable depends on the solvent used in the aerosol. Most use water, but some use alcohol. Alcohol is volatile and flammable. The majority of manufacturers produce non-flammable pepper spray formulations.

 

Question: Can you take pepper spray on a plane?

Answer: Yes, if the pepper spray is in checked baggage.

 

Question: Can I store pepper spray in a car?

Answer: Generally, yes, but we strongly urge you to be extremely mindful of the current temperature/weather when leaving your pepper spray in the car. Excessive heat or cold may cause the can to leak or burst. As such, we highly recommend you carry it on your person instead of leaving it in the car.

 

Question: Can pepper spray knock a person out?

Answer: No, but when pepper spray comes into contact with the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, and respiratory system it causes intense burning, coughing, temporary blindness, difficulty breathing, etc., in most people. These effects can last up to 45 minutes, sometimes exceeding that amount.

 

Question: How do I use key chain pepper spray?

Answer: If you need to use your pepper spray, make sure you have enough distance between you and the attacker. Aim the spray at the eyes and facial region of the threat. Release a 1 to 2 second burst of spray and move out of the way, keeping your eyes on the attacker. Key chain pepper spray can sometimes take a couple of seconds to cause a reaction. Additional pepper spray shots are sometimes needed. It is important to remember to spray and move. Once the threat is eliminated seek help and call the police.

 

Question: What happens when I use my key chain pepper spray on an attacker?

Answer: Contact with key chain pepper spray induces an immediate and intense burning sensation of the skin and causes the eyes to automatically shut, burn, tear, and swell. In addition, pepper spray causes inflammation of the nose, throat, and sinuses, which causes burning and shortness of breath. With the attacker disoriented and unable to see, you can easily escape and get help.

 

Question: What are the benefits and limitations of pepper spray?

Answer: Pepper spray is an excellent self-defense product. It is used by nearly every law enforcement agency throughout the country. It is non-lethal and extremely effective when sprayed in the facial area and eyes. It put a safe distance between your and an attacker and gives you plenty of time to escape and seek help. Because pepper spray does not cause death to the attacker, people are more likely to use it instantly without hesitation. Acting quickly can often avoid serious injuries and save lives. Pepper spray is very inexpensive, and is not typically restricted by law. A permit is not usually required to carry them. Still, you should be aware of its limitations, so you do not rely on just one form of defense. Pepper spray may take a few second for it to be effective. An attacker may be able to take your canister away from you, before the effects kick in. It may be used against you. Wind and rain may reduce its range and effectiveness. You may get spray-back when sprayed against strong wind.

 

Question: When can I use pepper spray?

Answer: Use pepper spray if you are threatened or if you feel your life is in danger. Pepper spray is used to allow you to get out of a bad situation. You do not necessarily want to wait until the situation has become dangerous to use pepper spray. Keep in mind, pepper spray is not a lethal weapon. You can also get more information in a local self-defense training class on how and when to use pepper sprays.

 

Question: How many ounces are in each canister of pepper spray?

Answer: The amount of pepper spray in each canister will vary depending on the model that is purchased. As will the number of “sprays” of each pepper spray.

 

Question: What is the Scoville scale?

Answer: The Scoville scale was developed by a pharmacist to measure the spicy heat of chili peppers in Scoville heat units (SHU). Some manufacturers report this number, and while it’s a better indicator than just the OC percentage, it is the hotness of the raw pepper, not the overall spray formula. In general, look for sprays with at least a 500,000 SHU rating.

 

Question: What size pepper spray should I purchase?

Answer: Pepper spray comes in all shapes and sizes. The size you need will depend on where you intend to carry or store your pepper spray. If you want some to keep in a purse or to take with you while you go running, look for small, compact canisters that attach to key rings (such as the key chain pepper spray). If you want something to keep in your home, you can invest in a larger canister.
