Monadnock Introduces the AutoLock II Expandable Baton
Patented AutoLock baton locking technology

JACKSONVILLE, Florida – The Monadnock® brand announces the introduction of the AutoLock® II expandable baton, which builds upon the proven features of the original Monadnock AutoLock baton series. Featuring patented AutoLock technology, the AutoLock II is a 23” (58.42cm) positive-lock baton with a newly designed cam and stainless steel ball bearing, which improves the locking action and baton stability.

Easily opened in either a passive or low-profile manner, the AutoLock II will stay locked in the open position while striking, blocking or jabbing and can be easily closed with the push of a button. The baton shaft features a blackened electroless nickel finish for improved corrosion resistance on the inside and outside of the baton. The AutoLock II is offered with a foam grip which offers excellent tear strength, and the Power Safety Tip® featuring a larger tip for weight-forward balance. Also standard with this model is the newly designed and patent pending Monadnock Wedge Cap end cap accessory for enhanced baton retention.

The AutoLock II, Model 9830 baton will be featured at the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show and Conference (SHOT Show) January 14 - 17, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, booth #12762. Available now, the Model 9830 weighs approximately 24 oz. (.68 kg) and is offered at an MSRP of $154.00.
