How The Safety Pin Works
The Safety Pin is an electronic device aimed at deterring criminals.
The product is designed to be clipped onto clothing. The siren is activated when the device is pulled away from the material.
To arm the device
Arming the device is easy- while holding the clip open, push the switch into the ‘on’ position. In fact it's even easier as the ‘on’ position will be activated automatically if the clip is facing down.
The siren will be activated when you pull it away from your clothing emitting a 110db siren.
To disarm the device
Just open the clip and while the clip is open, move the switch to the ‘off’ position.
