We hope you never actually have to use your blingsting pepper spray. But at least you have it in case you do. To fire, move the red actuator from the safety position into the firing position using the thumb. Point nozzle directly at the attacker’s face and depress the red actuator with index finger. For maximum results, fire the canister horizontally over the subject’s eyes, spraying from ear to ear. To stop firing, release finger pressure. And run, call police, get away from the situation entirely.
