Thankfully there are many options to defend your home and here is an interesting one to consider.
Introducing the Safe Bedside Table that is a minimalistic nightstand with some powerful functionality. In the matter of seconds the nightstand can be broken down into a defensive shield and bat. It is pretty common to have a baseball bat handy for home defense but many times it is unsightly or tucked away in a closet. When it comes to safety, time and efficiency are key. What better way to keep a baseball bat handy than right next to where you sleep while serving as a a functional nightstand. Although it may seem rudimentary, we’re a fan!

If that doesn’t pique your interest maybe the one review from a customer named Tucker will help. He writes a thorough review of the product quoting that “it could be better.” We don’t know if he actually has had to use this in a situation, but he gives some great pointers below.
The torso sized shield is ideal, allow for the protection of vitals and/or genitals in the event of an assault, picture clearly shows a left handed user, but is equally usable for righties. The leg/bat appears to be shorter than a baseball bat but longer than a rounders one. Depending on a user’s size and ability this combination can make a formidable defensive or offensive tool.
The cons however must of course be obvious, although bamboo is tough and light, the slated construction would have me wishing for it to be leather covered for additional strength without compromising the weight or for the stronger user a one piece thick board construction. The bat is over long for indoor use, ceiling height and hall dimensions would prevent fullest g force, might give an opportunist burglar second thoughts but not a determined assailant. To that end I would suggest replacing the bat with something sharp and serious looking a serrated edged hunting knife clipable to the shield for storage. Close quarters survival fighting you need every advantage, if knives scare you then I suggest some nice long nails 6inch plus near the top, the would be hidden when used as a table, but when brandished at an opponent, running away would seem like a sweeter deal.
Here is a DIY step-by-step solution on instructables.com that complements the video below. What do you think of the nightstand?
