Three years ago I did a podcast on my top 5 EDC self-defense weapons.
One of those was a product that went out of stock from the manufacturer for a while.
Well, it’s finally back… and I realized when I went to buy a few more of them that it’s one of the smallest, lightest, and CHEAPEST self-defense and survival tools there is.
But you know what else?
It’s not really a WEAPON at all.
That means you can take it literally anywhere.
But that’s not the ONLY reason you should carry one…
3 Reasons To Carry A SCREAMER
The scream whistle from Survival Frog doesn’t look like much.
It’s a tiny little piece of plastic.
But I absolutely LOVE it, because it doesn’t take much air to make it work…
…and when you blow into it, it’s AMAZINGLY LOUD.
It’s so small that you can carry it with you every day… put one in your car… and even drop one into each of your survival kits.
You’ll forget it’s there, but when you need it, there’s a LOT it can do for you:
1. It Can Scare Off An Attacker
Now, we’ve all heard of a “rape whistle.”
Usually, the term is used like a punch line.
That’s because blowing on a whistle like you’d carry in gym class isn’t going to do much to scare off an attacker.
But the scream whistle is a little different.
It doesn’t sound like those old, cheesy rape whistles, or like something your football coach would hang around his neck.
It puts out a piercing wail that draws ATTENTION… and that is something a mugger, a rapist, and most other thugs absolutely don’t want.
They count on darkness and anonymity to do their crimes… so you blowing on one of these scream whistles is the LAST thing they want.
Which brings me to…
2. It Can Draw Attention Like Nothing Else
They say you shouldn’t shout for help if you’re being attacked in public, in a hotel, or some other place like that.
Instead, you’re supposed to shout “Fire! Fire!” because people who don’t want to get involved in a crime will come running if that’s what it takes to save their own skins.
(Pretty sad that we have to think like this, you know?)
Well, the scream whistle gets attention like nothing else… so even if you’re NOT being attacked, if you want to draw a crowd of people fast (as in, a crowd of witnesses), blowing on a scream whistle will do that.
The noise doesn’t just scare away the bad people, in other words; it also attracts crowds of OTHER people, which might be just what you need.
3. It Can Help You Get Rescued In An Accident
If you were in an accident – say, your car was in a ditch over an embankment, and you couldn’t get out on your own – you’d need to call for help.
But if you were hurt, you might not be able to shout very loud.
And if you were lost in the woods, trying to get somebody’s attention so they could come find you, shouting would only work for so long before your voice was blown out.
In a survival situation, a scream whistle can bring rescuers to you FAST.
It doesn’t take much air to create one HECK of a racket with these, either.
All you have to do is keep blowing on it to make so much noise that anyone nearby will hear you.
That means that this whistle can save your life even if you’re all alone.
Of course, like I said, the best thing about these powerful screamers is that they’re very inexpensive.
You can afford to buy several for all your loved ones, your survival kits, your pocket, your car… wherever you might want a little insurance.
You’ll forget they’re there until you need them… and if you ever do, you’ll be really grateful to have them.
