This is where the country's most respected and tactically advanced law enforcement agencies trust their safety for ASP Friction Batons.

Friction Batons expand by vigorously spinning the baton straight up or straight down to lengthen the inner shoulders. Each shaft is locked in place by a precision design. To retract the baton, strike the tip of the baton sharply downwards on a hard surface, e.g. concrete.
Foam, Duratec and Wavemaster grips are available. Airweight shafts provide 45% weight loss with 98% of the steel's impact potential. Black chrome gives the most durable and corrosion-resistant black baton finish. Electroless is the most corrosion-resistant finish. It is well suited for environments with high humidity.
