This review is from: Safety Blinkers (Garden & Outdoors)
You have to screw the lights tightly to activate. That is fine, and they do blink nicely. But then it is almost impossible to stop the lights from working. They have to be unscrewed to de-activate and you have to go so far with the unscrewing that they fall apart! If you leave them lightly screwed, then hang them up, they switch themselves on and blink the battery to death. Will not buy them again.

I found the same thing, a need to unscrew a long way to prevent occasional blinking. Then I saw that along with the solid spacer that had to be removed initially to allow battery contact there had been an O-ring spacer which had fallen out. I put this back, and it was no longer necessary to unscrew a lot to turn the device off. A small twist did the trick. I find the device very useful for keeping track of my dog and always remove it completely from his collar when not in use. But the design is flawed. The o-ring should be more secure, there should be a plastic lining to the barrel to prevent accidental contact and most importantly the screw mechanism needs to be modified so that loosening the fitting does not allow it to unscrew further and fall apart.
