Walk Softly and Carry a Big Stick
I work 2nd shift, and I ride a bike to work and back. I purchased this tire thumper for protection from dogs and from anyone out looking for trouble late at night, while I'm on my way home. It fits into a side pocket of my backpack for easy, quick access. If I need to go into a store, it fits inside my backpack tucked away out of sight. The tire thumper is a solid piece of wood, with an iron rivet in the end for weight. I hope I don't ever need to use it...but it will make a good weapon if I ever need it.

Standard tire thumper
This is my third tire thumper. You really can't miss a low/flat tire on a set of tires. Literally a thud to a thump. I'm a thumper, every hook and drop. This is a tool, but it also works well deflecting whatever.. It's always good to have a nice finished piece of hardwood with you. The grip is nice as well, even when wet. The price is higher then the run of the mill tire thumper available at a local truck center, however the finished product is nicely done too.
Pit bull defense stick
We have a small poodle and there are loose dogs out when we are walking. I own a 2% (strong) bear spray and a foldable and formidable switchblade, but I think in a quick surprise attack I wouldn't have the time to get these out and ready. The bully stick is in my right hand, it is the perfect weight and size to apply in a fraction of a second. I do hope I'll never need to use it, but it could become a life saver one day - you never know, you know.
BAN from CLE
This will be good to use walking the dogs in case something nefarious comes along. I got the lighter weight which seems good. I thought the other might be too heavy but would consider the heavier one for more impact if you have to use it.
I bought this to walk my dog at night but
It’s not really easy to conceal. Then I was going to leave it in my car. Then I thought I better not. So now it’s at my front door. It’s out of sight out of mind but if it’s needed it’ll come in use. Great purchase.
Very solid tool
This is a very solid piece of wood. I like the strap and the grip. I hung this behind my front door. I think it will be a great self-defense tool if ever needed.
Great Stick for Walking
I bought this to carry with me when I go out along to take pictures for my photography. I like the size and weight.
