Alcohol Breath Tester, Single Use, Accurate, Inexpensive

Question about the Redline Single Use Breathalyzer

"Looking for a fast, inexpensive way to test my breath for alcohol before I drive home from a party." Thanks, Jim

I suggest the Redline Self Breathalyze. It is disposable, inexpensive, accurate, easy to use and single use. Results in 2 minutes. Fits in pocket! Might save your life or your driver's license! Traditional digital breathalyzers are not cost effective for occasional use. Disposable alcohol tests are a better choice. Redline is the only disposable breathalyser in the world to be quality approved and certified for accuracy by the FDA, USA, Standards Australia, French NF & German TUV.

Redline contains chemical crystals that change color from yellow to green when exposed to alcohol from a subject's breath. Reads above or below 0.05%. A positive test is displayed by green crystals above the two red lines on the tube. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has determined that the product is not hazardous nor toxic: no specific labeling is required.

Package includes a disposable breathalyzer ampule, measuring bag, and instruction guide. Dimensions of each tester are 4 in. x 2 in. x .8 in.) Weight: 5 oz.

Have a great summer!

Sincerely,
Barbara

Hand Held, Manually Activated Dazer and Pet Agree Use Ultrasound to Train or Scare Off Dogs

Question about the Dog Dazer and the Pet Agree.

Question: "I have a dog who is usually well-behaved until he sees another dog on our walk. Then the barking begins. Also I have been attacked by dogs when I am jogging. How do these devices work? Are they likely to work for me to train my dog and to scare off the aggressive ones? Thanks. Peter."

Answer: The Dazer and the Pet Agree are identical except for the color. These are sturdy, manually activated ultrasonic units that have a belt clip. Each uses a 9 volt battery that can last for years depending upon the frequency of use.

The best training method is to use a stern voice command like "No Bark" simultanously with the use of either device "shot" directly at the dog. Depending upon how intelligent and how stubborn your dog is, training may be fast or slow to stop dog barking. Rarely does the Dazer or the Pet Agree fail to work for training.

UPS, Fed Ex and USPS delivery persons use carry Dazers to ward off aggressive dog attacks. Aggressive dogs seem to respond more quickly to the ultrasound than non-aggressive ones. Using a strong "No" at the same time helps. We've sold hundreds of these units to delivery people and actually sold many to FEMA employees when Micronesia had a typhoon hit years ago.

The Dazer is gray; the Pet Agree is blue. The manufacturer made two colors with two names because the Japanese saw the word Dazer as a cruel word. Actually, the dog is not "dazed" as with a stun gun, just feels discomfort, not permanent injury, from the ultrasonic tone. These units also work with most cats.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely,

Barbara
