We have looked at statutes around the country and cannot find anything that refers to a product like ours. We've put a lot of thought into the design of TigerLady, and did the best we could regarding legality. It does not have any of the attributes that typically render a device of this kind illegal. Here are some thoughts...
- TigerLady is made entirely from high-impact plastic.
- TigerLady is not spring-loaded.
- TigerLady does not have blades but uses claws for scratching.
- The claws are less than 4 inches long, which is typically the limit for pocket knives in most states.
- TigerLady doesn't cover the knuckles or enhance punching, so it cannot be classified similarly to brass knuckles.
These are a few of the reasons we believe TigerLady is a legal device. Furthermore, we've not yet been able to find a case where a woman was held responsible for using even a banned device for its intended purpose. We would never recommend, or stand behind the use of TigerLady as an offensive weapon.
