Founded in 1976, ASP Inc. is one of the oldest and most well-known manufacturers of expandable batons in America. The premium materials, exceptional workmanship, and flawless function of the ASP Friction Loc baton set it apart from all others in quality, durability and performance. The ASP Friction Loc baton has proven itself virtually indestructible, and has been widely adopted by the military and law enforcement agencies.
These expandable batons are friction-lock in design, and are opened by swinging the handle forcibly through the air. To close the baton, the baton’s tip is driven into a hard surface to break the friction. Users found ASPs preferred to the usual straight batons for their weight, portability, convenience, effectiveness, usability, incredible psychological deterrence, and unparalleled control potential. Being light weighted, the ASP’s reload time is cut down and users are able to deliver multiple strikes in a short period of time. In military use, the ASP can be used in many other tasks such as breaking glass and clearing windows.
