For the first time, expandable batons were used in World War II by British troops. Its last segment was not a tube, but a spring. Expandable baton in its present form was first developed in the United States in the 1980s. They were an inseparable part of the security forces' equipment in the former GDR.
Expandable batons are made of different materials. Often made of steel, aluminum, chrome, nylon fiber and even titanium. Their handle is usually made of a non-slip rubber, so that the weapon sits securely in the hand. On the handle, you can mount a special tail, which makes the telescopic baton an improvised hammer. This can be used to break glass, for example. On the telescopic baton is also possible to attach a crowbar, ax or LED light. Some of the batons in our offer also include a case, which then you can carry this weapon on the belt and so always carry it with you.
