GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A Glendale father has found a new safety device for his family and it's easier and safer to use than pepper spray. It's called the eAlarm and it's a little key chain that emits a very loud sound to scare off attackers.

When the top is off, the eAlarm blares a 120-decibel siren that can be heard from 300 feet away.

Paul Sinkovits, a Glendale father, decided this would be a great option for his wife to carry when walking their young child. 

"...if something happens to my wife I don't want her carrying a gun or even pepper spray, something she has to point at, with this she just needs to pull it and it makes a loud noise," Sinkovits said. 

The device takes away the need to aim at something, and possibly miss the target. 

The siren can also be used to alert people nearby. If a hiker is stuck on a trail, it can be used to get someone's attention to call for help. 

The eAlarm is made by BASU and it can be found online at their website, basu.com
