The PPS23BL is a dual function emergency attack alarm. It features a 130 dB alarm, which is the loudest personal alarm sold by Vigilant. It is also the only alarm sold by Vigilant to include a backup feature - it has a security screamer whistle built into the end of the alarm that serves as an emergency backup alert mechanism in the event of battery failure.
The alarm is activated by depressing the button on the front of the alarm, but a different button on the back of the unit is the only way to deactivate and silence the alarm. In situations where seconds make a difference between life and death - the ease of activation combined with the "hidden" off button make this alarm an easy to use, and hard to defeat personal alarm.
• 130dB attack alarm with push button activation and concealed OFF button
• Neck lanyard for hands free operation
• Backup emergency manual whistle in case of battery failure
• Rugged sport design
• Preloaded and user replaceable batteries (2xLR44 watch batteries)
Personal alarms are one of the fastest growing segments at retail in the self defense industry, because an attacker's worst enemy is attention. Personal alarms are legal to carry in all 50 states (even on airplanes!) and are a very safe method of self defense. They require no training or skill to operate, and can be used by anyone regardless of age or physical ability. Victims are often too traumatized to shout for help in unfamiliar and dangerous situations, increasing their vulnerability. Criminals do not like to draw attention, and will likely run off when they realize the alarm cannot be stopped.
The PPS23BL is particularly suitable for teenagers, parents, night owls, delivery route employees, business owners, and college students. Joggers, walkers, and bicycle riders may enjoy the lanyard for hands free carrying.

I have traveled abroad with this alarm for three years now. It makes me feel very secure to know I have it. This is not indestructible, but if anyone knows of one that is, fill me in please. These are legal to travel with and okay to take through any security. To be on the safe side, you could remove the batteries and there will definitely be no questions asked. This can be a (small) hassle, but will keep you moving through security with no issues. That being said, I have never removed the batteries going through airport security, but I do place it very carefully in the bins so that nothing could push the button and set it off. I'm sure if that DID happen - well, then they might want to take it from me. I wear it around my neck during the entire flight (not because I have any plans of setting it off on the plane, but because I don't trust it to not go off in a tightly packed carry on bag.)
I have broken 1 or 2 of these alarms before due to treating them carelessly (put them in my check in bags.) If you will be traveling with them, I recommend protecting them from anything hitting up against it... even if you have to stick it in a hard sided sunglass case or something like that.
I hope this review has been of help to you!
The bulb you see on the lanyard is a safety release. It breaks open if you pull hard on the lanyard, hopefully preventing you from being choked to death by your own whistle.
I gave this to our 9 year old son for when he walks to scouts by himself. We are all glad he has it.
this thing is so loud. I tested it right after I opened it, and I couldn't figure out how to turn it off and my ears hurt so bad. I had a migraine the rest of the day. I imagine you would scare the crap out of someone if you used this to scare them away. I bought it for my daugher to carry. so far she's only worn it once. the whistle is pretty loud too.
