About SafeSound Alarm
The SafeSound Alarm, found online at SafeSoundPersonalAlarm.com, is a type of personal safety alarm which claims to be responsible for saving “millions of lives.”
How Does It Work?
According to their website, SafeSound Alarm is “the perfect defense mechanism” for helping men, women, and children protect themselves in a variety of different circumstances and situations.
In order to be effective, this alarm has been designed to be very easy to use. All customers have to do is pull the pin, and an “ear piercing” alarm will activate and will remain active for up to half an hour until the pin is plugged back in.
The website says that this alarm can easily be attached to keys, purses, backpacks, or belts so that it is accessible to people in situations where they might be in danger or it can be used by senior citizens to alert someone to help them in case they fall.
Currently this company is offering their customers a promotional opportunity where they can take advantage of a 50% off deal so that the SafeSound Alarm is priced at $39.95 instead of the traditional retail price of $80.00. The website is unclear about how long this promotional offer will last.
The Return Policy for this product is confusing. Their sales page states that customers will be given 30 days in which to request a refund or a replacement, but their legal Terms and Conditions page says that customers will be given 90 days. Under normal circumstances, customers are instructed to follow whatever instructions are published in a company’s Terms, but in order to be safe, customers should always follow the shortest time period published on a website.
In general, however, customers should contact their Customer Service team to get clarification on not only what the correct time period of their policy is, but also on when the time period begins – from the date the order is placed or the date your product is delivered.
Regardless of the time period, this company says that to be eligible for return, customers must return their item in the same condition in which it was received and in its original packaging.

Unfortunately this particular product does not appear to have positive customer reviews at this time, making it difficult for us to recommend the SafeSound Alarm.
The truth is, though, that there are many different products just like this available on the market which can be purchased for much less than $80 or $40, which are well-liked by their customers, and which offer their customers clear Refund Policies, so it may be simpler for customers to work with one of these established companies than to deal with SafeSound.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Personal alarms that you carry on your person in case of emergency situations are not uncommon and there are a variety of different options on the market for customers who might be interested in something more affordable or which operates a little differently than the SafeSound Alarm.

I haven't purchased your product and never will your one ad has two mistakes in it. The ad is supposed to be about a lady from Saskatoon Saskatchewan however the police car in the photo isn't from the SPS their cruises are white and blue. Also Jeff Strum is not the name of our Chief of police. You need to do a better job of fact checking. Using false info is a scam.
I ordered 3 of these alarms on 20th January 2021.Tracking is unreliable telling me that package was dispatched on 21 January. Still in USA mon 27th January.
Support email system ignores proof of posting from UK. Tracking tells me that package was delivered to my address on 4th February. Proof of posting is date stamped 5th February.
I have no idea where the package is now other than somewhere in USA.
I would like to add that I asked the company to cancel the order but this was refused. I therefore requested a return which explains my earlier message about the dates. I returned the package on 5th February 2021 from UK.
Confusion now to be told package was delivered to my home address on 4th February.
No idea what is going on.

Do not waste your money with this clickbait gimmick. This would be a good personal security device if it was actually reliable and well-built.
The alarm would not go off when pulling out the pin, when I finally yanked on it hard enough to activate it, the chain broke. I had trouble with this as an able-bodied man, I would definitely not trust this to keep my elderly mother safe. You're better off spending $10 on pepper spray.
I bought two of these.
They are a total waste of money.
If you hold it close to your ear, you can faintly hear a sound like a strangled chicken.
I put in two new batteries, supplied by the manufacture. same result.
If I could give it less than one star, I would.
I ordered 10 of these personal alarms for female relatives and friends for Christmas. I need to contact each to see if theirs still works, but 2 so far no longer work. I pulled the pin on mine 2 times so far just show how it works, now it does not work at all. Same for the other one. Now the pin only pulls out a 1/4 inch instead of all the way and makes no noise. Very disappointing. I thought I was giving these friends and relatives something unique for Christmas, but apparently it is a joke. I hope someone does not need it in an emergency and it does not work. I'll try a new battery but it should work longer than 2 pulls.
I have showed the sound alarm to friends and of course with the sound. Have not had to use it personally however, battery died and replaced now Not working. I
THINK THE PLUNGER IS NOT FUNCTIONING. WHAT TO DO?
Have not had to use sound system device but have showed it to my friends. Of course showing them how to use it and the noise it makes. Well I had to replace batteries and now it does not work. No matter how I pull up on plunger no noise is emitted. I am thinking perhaps that the plunger is defective. So since I recently bought several for gifts please tell me what to do with mine.
Thank you. Dorothy Stella [email protected]
