Wrist Saver - Wristband pepper spray for runners, walker and hikers10 Walking and Running Safety Tips

You can never be to safe when you’re out running or walking.  With crime rates high, you always need to observe certain rules of safety whenever you’re working out.

This is always important but extremely important when you’re walking at night.  If you can follow these simple 10 walking safety rules, you’ll increase your odds of a safe, enjoyable walk.

Please share these with all your friends, it could help save a life some day.

1. Self-Defense:  Always carry a Personal Saver product to get you out of sticky situations.  We recommend the Wrist Saver pepper spray product since its designed for runners, walkers and hikers.  The Wrist Saver is light weight, comfortable and comes with a ½ oz pepper spray bottle along with an LED light, ID card and reflective edging.

2. Face Traffic: Your first choice should be walking on sidewalks or bike paths.  If must walk on the road, always walk in the direction of oncoming traffic.

3. Never Walk Alone:  Walk with a training partner.  This will not only increase your safety when walking, but will also make your walk more enjoyable.  If you’re not able to walk with a training partner, always let someone know where you’ll be walking and what time you expect to return.

4. Wear the Correct Clothing:  If you’re walking at night, dress to be seen.  Drivers in the early morning or a night are rarely looking out for walkers.  Always wear bright clothing with some sort of reflective material.  The Wrist Saver pepper spray product will help out in this area with the wristband being reflective and the LED light moves with your wrist, so you can be seen up to a mile away.  The worst type of clothing to wear in the dark is a black, navy or blue tracksuit, shorts or t-shirt.  This type of clothing will make you virtually invisible to the oncoming traffic.

5. Walk Defensively:  Assume that oncoming traffic and turning cars don’t know the ‘pedestrian has the right-of-way’ rule.

6. Change Up Your Routes:  Keep one or two steps ahead of any potential muggers.  If you change up your routes and times that you walk, it’s very unlikely a mugger will be able to predict when you’ll be out walking.  Plus, this keeps your workout fresh.

7. Carry Some ID:  Always carry some type of identification in case of an emergency.  This is another reason to carry the Wrist Saver pepper spray.  The Wrist Saver has a built ID card slot and comes with an ID card for you to fill out your information.  If you’re away from home on a trip, always write down where you’re staying.

8. Toss the Jewelry:  Keep all your valuables at home.  You’re just asking to get mugged if you’re flashing a gold necklace or bracelet.  The only accessory you need is a wrist watch and a Wrist Saver.

9. Leave the Music Home: If you’re distracted by your favorite song, you won’t be alert to any potential dangers, be it a dog, an oncoming car or the sounds of someone running up behind you.

10. Keep to Your Right:  If you’re walking on a cycling path or greenway, always walk on the right hand side, so bikers and faster walkers or runners can easily pass.

About Personal Savers


The idea for Personal Savers was born in 1995 by Derek Downing and Chad Smith, two national and world champion professional inline speed skaters. While training on the open roads in Georgia, they always came across unruly drivers and stray dogs nipping at their feet. Derek's father David Downing owned an in house pepper spray business that sold to police forces worldwide which helped spark the idea of the original Wrist Saver.

The original Wrist Saver was a crude version of itself today but the concept to keep people safe while being active was born. That idea grew into an actual company, but with the strains of traveling for competitions the business was put on hold...
