Last updated 01-22-09

The Pet Safety Light is a small flashing light that attaches to your pet's collar. The light has two surprisingly bright red-orange LEDs that blink in a pseudo-random manner and offer a high degree of visibility - close to 180° as far as I am able to determine.

It is powered by three AG3 button cells, which are easily replaceable without tools.


To use the Pet Safety Light, first remove that black plastic horseshoe-shaped washer from the groove between the body and tailcap of the light, From that point on, just give it a gentle but firm clockwise twist. Careful, not TOO hard. Turning it off is just as easy; twist the other way until it goes off.

Use the spring-loaded "lobster claw" clasp to affix it to your pet's collar. The unit appears to be water-resistant enough that you can leave it on the collar even if it's raining or snowing outside, but if your dog goes into water, you might want to remove it before setting Princess or Duchess or Fido or Duke or Andi or Lakota or whatever your pet's name is loose.

To change the batteries in your Pet Safety Light, remove it from your pet's collar. Unscrew the two halves of the unit until they come apart. Remove the three AG3 button cells from the bottom half of the light. There should be a milky white plastic cylinder the cells fit in; remove that and set it aside before disposing of the dead batteries.

Place three new AG3 button cells in the light's body, orienting them so the flat (+) side is downward. With all three cells in there, slide that milky white plastic cylinder over them, so the top two cells are covered on their sides by it. This is important, because it prevents the two topmost cells from touching the walls of the battery chamber.

Check the insides of the top piece to be sure the black plastic "doughnut" has not come out. If it has (or if it stuck to the uppermost cell), place it back inside the light.

Screw the two halves of the light back together, and back off a bit once it springs to life. Then attach it to your pet's collar.

The Pet Safety Light is...well...a pet safety light, not a flashlight designed to be used every day, thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata (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 or with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that flashlights may have inflicted upon them.

So this section of the Pet Safety Light's web page will seem SIGNIFICANTLY more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight that was born to be a flashlight and nothing but a flashlight.

There is an O-ring on the product's barrel that engages when the unit is screwed together enough that it is secure; this O-ring not only ensures water-resistance, but provides sufficient resistance so that the two halves of the light will not unscrew by themselves during your pet's normal motion.

The unit was deader than a doorknob when I first opened the package and attempted to activate it, but it was just the batteries. When I replaced the batteries with the spare set included with my Executive Style Pen with Laser, the Pet Safety Light promptly sprang to life.

I cannot provide it in other formats, so please do not ask.

That music you might hear is from a demo I wrote for the Commodore 64 computer in 1992.
The demo's actual filename is a toliet word, so I cannot say it here. It starts with "PU" and ends with "ED".
Think of a kitty cat being flogged with a long flexible instrument used for administering a beating and you can probably figure it out.

Test unit was purchased on the PulseTV website on 09-12-07 and was received on the afternoon of 09-17-07.

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.
