In some emergency situations, the only weapon you will have readily available are your car keys.

The ends of the Yoogo will protrude between both your index finger and thumb plus between your index finger and middle finger. This makes hitting/striking an attacker much more effective and assists in other self-defense moves as well. The Yoogo can even be used to break auto glass in emergencies.
