Once you get comfortable storing and holding your pepper spray, it’s time to learn how to actually use it. Pepper sprays and pepper gels deploy extremely similarly, so these tips work for both. In this video, learn from David Nance, CEO of SABRE and personal safety expert.
Step 3 of How to Use Pepper Spray: Spray and Away
Hold the canister in your dominant hand, and extend that arm out in front of you. Unlock the safety mechanism, and grip with your thumb on the center of the actuator. Press down. You want to spray ear to ear, across the eyes. Aim for the nose and mouth once the eyes are affected.
If you miss the first time, steady your aim, and reverse – go back across the eyes to saturate that area and cover the face as much as possible. Your goal is to take an attacker’s vision away and cause involuntary eye closure, difficulty breathing, facial burning, and psychological symptoms like fear, anxiety, and panic.
At SABRE, we say ‘spray and away’ – once you saturate your attacker’s eyes and face with the pepper spray, it’s time to get away – that’s the most important thing. Then, call for help if needed.
