If you’re a woman who likes to jog but you don’t always feel as safe as you’d like to, this clever little anti-assault ring might be just the thing you’re looking for. It’s called Go Guarded and it’s a plastic weapon with a serrated edge that can be worn on any finger.

“There are countless horror stories of runners and joggers assaulted, raped, or murdered across the U.S.,” explains the product’s website. “Go Guarded is a new option for active woman to defend themselves. You will naturally use your hands to fight off an attack. With Go Guarded on your finger, you can increase your effectiveness in escaping an attack and reaching safety.”
