The DefendMe Personal Alarm, found online at Resqme.com, is a new product whose goal is to give their customers access to a high quality, non-weaponized self defense product that they can take with them everywhere.
How Does It Work?
Resqme.com is a company that has everything their customers might need to create a Personal Defense Kit, with products ranging from their PrepareMe Lifesaver Kits designed to keep in your car and their DefendMe Personal Alarm.
According to their website, in the United States, more than 650 women are sexually assaulted every day and 82% of these assaults are committed by someone who is considered a “non-stranger,” and 42% of these assaults are actually committed by someone considered a friend or colleague.
There are many different effective self-defense products on the market, like pepper spray or stun guns, but many of these products are not those that are commonly carried over to our friends’ house or into the office. This is where the DefendMe Personal Alarm comes in.
It is a small, personal alarm that is designed to easily attach to nearly any strap, including those on backpacks, purses, or belt-loops so it can be inconspicuously carried on yourself at all times. And if you are in a position where you feel threatened, all you need to do is pull the lanyard ring away from the alarm.
Once pulled, the alarm will begin to sound, loud enough to be heard up to 100 meters away and for up to 30 minutes, as long as the batteries are in good condition. To stop the alarm, you simply need to push the half circle ring back into the alarm until it clicks into place.
Currently the DefendMe Personal Alarm is priced at just $9.95, with an additional fee of $3.00 per order. In addition, when you place this item in your cart, before you purchase it you will be able to calculate the cost of your shipping, so the full price of your purchase will be displayed before you submit it.
This product is also available through other retailers, both in stores and online, so customers may find this product listed at other prices depending on what website they are shopping on.
Unfortunately at this time, it does not appear that the Resqme.com website offers any information regarding returns or refunds. Customers who are concerned should contact their Customer Service team to ask about what policies they may have in place, or they can choose to purchase this product from a third party provider that has a clearly published Refund Policy on their website.
Customer Service Contact Info

This product actually appears to have fairly mixed reviews at this time, with some customers thinking that this product is very effective and useful, and others complaining that they didn’t believe the alarm was actually loud enough to be truly cause an attacker to desist.
That being said, as a non-weaponized self defense product which is legal in all 50 states and is even approved by the TSA to be carried onto planes, it still seems like it may be worthwhile for some customers to try for themselves.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many different self defense products on the market, including other personal alarms and other non-weaponized self defense items, so if customers are unhappy with this product for any reason, there are other alternatives on the market that may work better for your needs.
