AutoLock® X3™ HG Expandable Baton

The Monadnock® AutoLock®X3™ HG incorporates improvements found in the AutoLock X3™ series of batons, along with larger diameter shafts for those who prefer a baton with a sturdier feel. Some of the features found in the X3 HG are an integrated nose guide for more efficient holstering and grip protection, improved positive locking design for reliability, a more stable feel with tightened tolerances and a corrosion-resistant finish and components. The Super Grip® handle provides an excellent surface for the user to maintain control of the baton against pulling and twisting. The ribbed material enhances in both wet and dry conditions.

The X3 HG is made for durability, with a black electroless nickel finish that prevents corrosion inside and out.

Batons should be sized proportionally to the Officer’s height. One of the common misconceptions is a longer baton is better. Normally, if an Officer is given a baton that is too large for them they will naturally find the proper balance point for grip….much like a baseball player will “choke up” on a bat that is too large. By “choking up” the Officer has to overcompensate for the improper length and will move their grip up on the handle several inches negating the length advantage.

Recommended Baton Lengths Based on Officer Height
This is not a firm rule, rather a recommended guideline.

Height Baton Size
Under 5’6″ (1.7m) 16″ (40.64 cm) – 18″ (45.72 cm)
5’6″ – 6′ (1.7m – 1.8m) 21″ (53.34 cm) – 22″ (55.88 cm)
Over 6′ (1.8m) 26″ (66.04 cm)
