Safety Stick, retail $1.99
Manufactured by (Unknown) for Halloween World (
Last updated 05-26-11

The Safety Stick is a product designed to be carried by Trick-Or-Treaters on Halloween night to allow them to be more visible to drivers and pedestrians.

It has three LEDs (one each red, green, and blue) in its "head" that operate in three different modes (self-switching) whenever it is activated.

It comes in an all-plastic body (surprise, surprise, surprise ***NOT*** considering it cost less than two dollars!) and feeds from 3 LR44 (AG-13) button cells housed in the product's handle and secured behind a door fastened with a screw.


To use the Safety Stick, first, gently pull the insulating tab out of the battery compartment via the slot in the battery door for it.
Dispose of or recycle this tab as you see fit.

Press & release the rectangular purple button near the bottom of the handle to activate the LEDs.

Press & release it again to turn it off.

To change the batteries, take a small phillips screwdriver (size #0) and unscrew & remove the screw holding the battery door on. Throw the screw into the graveyard so the zombies find it and drop it into an open grave...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.
Remove the battery door and set that aside as well.

Remove the used LR44 button cells from the compartment (use the tip of a knife to gently pry them out if necessary), and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Install three new LR44 button cells into the chambers for them, orienting all three so that their flat-ends (+) positives face up.

Place the battery door back on, and screw in that screw.
Aren't you glad you didn't throw that screw into the graveyard with all those yucky stinky zombies now?

Unable to measure current due to how the product was constructed and how it functions.

This is a Halloween safety light (and a rather cheaply-made one too if I do say so myself), 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 Safety Stick's evaluation will appear SIGNIFICANTLY more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The battery door is secured with a screw; this serves to help keep those dangerous little button cells out of children's mouths; the screw should not be intentionally removed for this very reason. It is a safety feature, and a rather important one at that.

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