This is a clip-on safety blinker designed to make Trick-Or-Treaters more visible to drivers, bicyclers, and pedestrians at night.

The Flashing Safety Light is a smallish, disc-shaped product that is made of orange and black plastic, has a jack-o-lantern (carved pumpkin) silkscreened onto its front, and a blinking red LED inside provides the safety feature touted by the product's packaging materials.

It feeds from two AG-10 button cells located inside the body; the product is held together with two screws so that little ghouls & goblins cannot access and subsequently swallow the batteries.

The Flashing Safety Light comes ready to use at once.

Press & release the button on the back of the unit to activate it; press & release the same button again to deactivate it.

The Flashing Safety Light comes with a springy plastic clip already affixed to the back of the unit; you may use this clip to attach the product to belts, pants wastebands, parts of a Halloween costume, Trick-Or-Treat bags, and other relatively thin materials.

To change the batteries when necessary, unscrew & remove the two screws from the back of the unit, and throw them in the graveyard so the zombies find them, drop them into an open grave, drag a heavy grave marker to graveside, kick it into the grave, and maybe even spring a leak on them...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THOSE!!! So just set them aside instead.

Pull the orange part from the black base; you may use the same screwdriver you used to remove the screws with to gently pry the back off by inserting it into the clip and very gently tugging. Set the orange part aside.

Between the two button cells, you'll see a clip bridging them; this clip is fastened with another screw. Unscrew & remove the screw, and remove this clip too. Set them aside.

Remove the used button cells, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert two new AG-10 button cells into the compartments for them, orienting them as shown in the photograph directly below.

Place the metal bridge back on over the cells, and insert & gently tighten the screw. The unit should start winking its little red LED eye at you; turn it off at this point.

Place the orange top over the base, aligning its screw holes with the screw openings in the base.

Insert and gently tighten the two screws - you know, the ones I already lost.
I can hear one rattling around inside my computer keyboard; I do not know where the other one is...let me grab a flashlight and start checking around...BBS...nope, didn't find it. I strongly suspect that it's somewhere in the rug and will soon fall prey to the hungry, hungry vacuum cleaner.

There, you're done.
Aren't you glad you didn't huck those screws into the graveyard with all of those zombies with full bladders now? (or drop them into keyboards & rugs)

This is a Halloween safety light, not a flashlight designed to be carried around all of the time, thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the toliet bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of an outdoor patio, use a medium claw hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island {In the episode "Les Saves the Day...Again", Paulie Preztail says "Hey, ever wonder why this park's called 'Mount Erupto' anyway?", then Franklin Fizzlybear says "I think its an old native term. Means 'very safe.'"}), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights (that were born to be flashlights and nothing but flashlights) may have inflicted upon them.

So this section of the Flashing Safety Light's evaluation will appear SIGNIFICANTLY more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

According to the packaging materials, the Flashing Safety Light is recommended for people 4 years old and up.

Test unit was purchased at Raleys in Sacramento CA. USA on 10-16-08.

Product was made in China.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
