Monadnock Releases AutoLock Baton with Hand Shield

April 29, 2008  | 

Monadnock, part of BAE Systems Products Group, announces today the introduction of the AutoLock Defender.

The new AutoLock Defender shields a user’s gun hand from hostile strikes with a guard that fits over one’s knuckles. The guard helps keep the baton firmly gripped during blocking, striking and jabbing techniques and can be used with gloved or bare hands. The Defender is available in 16-inch, 18-inch, 21-inch, 22-inch, and 26-inch lengths in black chrome finish with a textured grip.

A variety of tips are available for the Defender line, including the urethane Power Safety Tip and Safety Tip, as well as a Lime Green 3xT Tactical Targeting Tip. The 3xT Tactical Targeting Tip improves officer’s striking skills by allowing officers to visually track the baton’s tip during training demonstrations and in the field.

Like the traditional AutoLock batons, the Defender has a patented cam ball bearing and locking mechanism that helps ensure the baton stays locked open during blocking, striking and jabbing techniques. It closes with a push of a button, eliminating the need to strike the baton on the ground.

Monadnock is a leading manufacturer of high-quality batons andaccessories for the law enforcement community since 1958. With morethan 40,000 certified Monadnock instructors worldwide that providepractical defense tactics to criminal justice professionals, Monadnockis committed to officer and public safety. Most Monadnock productscarry a lifetime repair or replacement guarantee, and are subjected torigorous quality control programs before they are released.
