The grip of the P12 and P16 is the same as ASP's Agent baton but distinct to the industry. It features a crosshatch pattern with a continuous spiral overlay that results in a grip that is smooth and doesn't cause abrasion to clothing.
When retracted, the P12 Baton is only 5 inches and the P 16 is 6.5 inches, making them easily concealed inside a pocket, purse or waistband. They can also be worn with ease on a waistband or dress belt. Both batons feature ASP's exclusive Snap Loc Clip (patent pending). The clip can be placed in a variety of positions along the handle to enhance concealment and the ease with which a user can draw the weapon.
