Not all of us can afford a fancy home security system that’s monitored 24×7. Instead, if we want to deter criminals from taking our possessions, we lock our doors and hope for the best. There are some low-tech alarms that will simply emit a loud sound, in hopes of scaring off burglars, but even those aren’t the most effective. So why not step it up a bit, and make sure they want to get far away from your house as fast as they can.
This Burglar Blaster is one thing that no would-be thief will want to tangle with. Once tripped, it will not only start wailing loudly, but it’s going to shoot out pepper spray. The 4oz container is enough to cover 2,000 square feet with the stuff, leaving the criminal with a good bit of pain in the eyes. Of course, the trade-off here is that you have a house full of pepper spray. I’ve never tried to clean that stuff up, but it seems to be that it wouldn’t be much fun. Also, you’re going to have to shell out $600 for one of these. While I appreciate the harm it would cause to someone breaking into my house, I think it would be more of a hassle than it’s worth.
