To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The pins either fell out or were pulled out by accident.The alarm went off five times in the first week and 1/2 I hadthem. I bought them for the girls and women in my family but I will not give the alarms to them. I found myself in a few very embarrassing situations in public and I didn’t want to put them in that same position. I am afraid to walk around with these alarms.
Omg! This thing suddenly went off on its own in a store where I was shopping merrily. Took me a few secs to figure that the unbearable noise was coming from my handbag. 🤦🏻♀️ Embarrassed I tried to shut it off. It wudnt & then the pin broke. The noise was deafening after a few seconds & I literally squeezed this into the palm of my hand to muffle that sound. Exited the store in a huff & threw it into a ditch near by. It must have continued till the battery ran out. It scared me instead of anyone else. Although a good price so not feeling guilty of throwing my money into the “ditch” but I m wary of carrying another one again.
Do not just toss this around in your purse, car, whatever. All it takes is a slight snag to pull the pin and it's game on. If it's activated it will pierce your eardrums. I guess that's the idea. My wife accidentally activated in the car. I literally had to destroy it with a rock to shut it off. I didn't have the luxury or time to figure out how it worked to try to turn it off as my daughter was slowly losing hearing, as was my dog, and myself.
