I bought a StoppaRed a few years ago. I am disabled and a First Responder so going solo is common place. I have only had to draw this item once on a member of public, they soon backed down. I would recommend this product for ALL emergency staff working solo.

Wonderful to know one can legally defend oneselves. After recently been the victim of a crime I bought a can of the Stoppa Red self defence spray. It is made by the very reputable company Mace and I have the greatest confidence in it. It has a safety catch on the top of the lid which stops any release whilst in travel, but it is very easy to either put your finger onto the release button. Knowing it can be sprayed with full force from 3m is also a wonderful plus. I FEEL SAFE NOW

Guy tried to steal my wife's purse last week and she gave him the whole can to the face. He dropped a knife and ran off. Police found fingerprints and also the guy (very red faced)will certainly be replacing this spray. JS Cheshire

This saved me from being stabbed! A youth rammed his bike into me in Gadebridge Park knocking me over. I shouted at him and he was so crazy that I dared to have a go, he threatened to stab me!! I froze and my daughter screamed at me to get my Spray out. I aimed it right at his face and screamed at him to BACK OFF! Which he did! I had a few tears but thank God I had the Defence Spray.

I purchased this mace spray as I keep my horse on a remote farm and I am up there on my own a lot of the time. It is a great reassurance as it will protect me, as there's no-one to hear an alarm. I also carry it with me whilst walking the dog. Thank very much for the fast service. NN Herts

StoppaRed UV Personal Attack Self Defence Spray made by MACE® Description
This personal protection Self Defence Spray will deter, mark and identify an attacker without injury. It also has the potential benefit of deterring a threatening group who may be confrontational but afraid of identification. Remember, they will NOT know what is in the canister you are pointing at them.
These Stoppared defence sprays are manufactured by MACE Security International Inc, makers of MACE brand self defence sprays.
UK Legal Defence Spray.
Tested and Approved by The Guild of Security UK (5 stars Approved Product - Review available on request)
Stoppared is the most powerful defence spray we are allowed to sell in the UK and made by the world famous Mace Company.
Thick slimy goo that sticks to an attacker's face giving you time to react and escape.
The MACE® UV Defence Spray emits a Bright red and UV dye to help identify the attacker even days later. It is very difficult to remove without running water.
Help CCTV operators to track a suspects movements. It is no longer your word against theirs, the MACE® UV Defence Spray places the offender at the scene.
Easy one handed operation with integral spring loaded safety feature makes the MACE® UV Defence Spray the fastest to deploy spray in the UK.
Accurate ballistic stream over 3 metres for approx 6 seconds or 6 one second bursts. Our MACE® UV Defence Spray has a maximum range of 4.5 metres.
Is this legal? Yes, the Stoppared UV Defence Spray is legal in the UK. Section 5(1) (b) of the Firearms Act 1968 prohibits any weapon of whatever description designed or adapted for the discharge of any noxious liquid, gas or other thing. Because the Mace Defence Spray doesn’t contain any substances a court in this country may consider noxious and the can itself is not designed to discharge a noxious substance, it is not prohibited by section 5(1) (b) and does not come under the control of the firearms legislation.
On how many perpetrators can I use Spray?
It is possible to use the Stoppared UV Defence Spray on more than one person. However we advise that it be used on one person only (if possible) for the full effect and maximum time to escape and seek safety. Stop spraying when you are sure that the whole face is covered in goo, then get away as fast as you can to a place of safety and call the Police.
Can I use this Stoppared Defence Spray several times?
In theory yes, but we do not advise it. This Defence Spray can contains fluid which you cannot measure from the outside. So when you think that the spray is half full it may not be enough. Do not play with your life.
Is the Stoppared UV Defence Spray hazardous for my health?
No, all the ingredients used in the Defence Spray come from the food and cosmetics industries and are non toxic. The ingredients are tested extensively by these producers. They are not harmful for the eyes and skin. When swallowed it is wise to go for first aid as a precaution. Small amounts will cause no harm
Does the Stoppared UV Defence Spray really give me a chance?
Yes, the sticky, slimy goo gets in an attackers eyes. When a person gets something in their eyes they will automatically close their eyes and attempt to wipe it away with their hands until they are sure that all the goo is gone. Compare it with a shampoo, it doesn’t hurt but you will close your eyes until you’ve rinsed it out with water. This short amount of time is long enough to get away and call for help. Also, carrying the Defence Spray with you will help keep you alert to your surroundings and prepared for an attack giving you an improved chance of getting away.
Once sprayed, can the Police find the attacker more easily?
Yes, normally a potential attacker doesn’t look like a movie villain with scars and dark clothes they look like ordinary people. However after being sprayed with Mace UV Defence Spray, they will have a bright red face, neck and hands & hair. This will draw attention to themselves and will make it easier for the Police to identify and apprehend them. Another benefit is that once sprayed, attackers inadvertently leave bright red fingerprints behind that will help identification and prosecution and don't forget, it also contains an invisible UV trace on them too!
Can I take the Defence Spray everywhere I go?
Yes, but consider that there might be house rules that say that Defence Sprays like this should be left at the entrance. For instance at clubs, nightclubs, football matches or even cinemas and airports, you must respect these rules.
Take care of your Stoppared UV Defence Spray, it might save your life.
When may I use it?
When you are in direct danger of physical harm and there is no other way to get out of danger. This must be in accordance with local laws.
Can I spray somebody just for fun?
No! If the person you have sprayed files a report with the Police you could be punished. Only use this Stoppared Defence Spray as it is designed for use, in self-defence.
Does it destroy clothing?
No, it washes out of most clothing eventually.
It is not tested on all fabrics so be careful.
Can I use the spray over a great distance?
You can spray somebody accurately over 3 meters (nearly 10 feet).
