The Monadnock PR-24 control baton is perfect for those seeking a non-lethal alternative for self-defense. They are noted for their utility in both offensive and defensive maneuvers and are great for subduing and controlling attackers. Constructed almost entirely from anodized aluminum and coated with a black polycarbonate finish, these control batons are both durable and easy-to-use. The straight handle features a no-slip, knurled grip while the side handle features a grenade grip and a Trumbull Stop that both maximizes baton retention and aids in control techniques. It is aptly named due to its overall length when fully expanded – 24 inches. It has a diameter of 1.25 inches and when collapsed it measures approximately 14 inches. The PR-24 is a little heavier than the MX-21, weighing in at 24 ounces. With its side handle and heavier weight, it is not as easily concealed as its little brother. However, it is still one of the most popular choices among police and other law enforcement agencies.
Several features make the Monadnock PR-24 control baton a more desirable baton than others on the market. Many batons are based on a friction lock, which is often unreliable and may either collapse at inopportune times or get stuck in the locked position. The PR-24 features a positive locking mechanism (mechanical lock) that uses a pin and spring to keep the baton locked in position until you are ready to collapse it. It also means that you’ll never have to bang your baton on the ground or another solid surface to get it to collapse – just depress the pin and easily collapse the shaft. The other impressive feature is the inclusion of the side handle. As noted, the side handle allows the baton to be held in such a way that will protect your forearm when attempting to cover your head from blows. It can also be used for several controlling techniques, when subduing an attacker by force is not ideal.
