Alarm exactly as expected - colour, size etc. Tested it when it arrived and it emits a deafening alarm - enough to scare anyone off. Also has a very handy torch incorporated into it. Bought for my daughter at Uni in London - sincerely hope she never has cause to activate it but it has made me feel better knowing she has it with her.
This is a lovely muted almost pearlescent purple. It is loud as advertised It attaches at the top via a split ring to the enclosed carabiner, you are also able to clip the rip cord handle for the alarm to the carabiner which reduces the likelihood of accidental operation whilst also making it easy to remove should the need arise. The slim flattened egg shape is easy to slip into your pocket, including into a jeans pocket comfortably.
I bought this for my friend who is off travelling and we tested it the other day and a good noise was made which we felt was a great deterrent. Neat and easy to attach. Cannot comment on durability as yet.
Been advised to buy one of these for daughter who is going to study overseas which in itself is a sorry state of affairs. The unit is small, sturdy construction and easy to use. I bought this one because of the police spec endorsement and because it was the loudest available. With the original batteries it was not 140db according to the phone app I tested it with - maybe at source it is but I hesitate to suggest trying to keep it at an attackers ear to prove a point. Fresh batteries has resulted in the sound of the alarm becoming louder. Loud enough to severely inconvenience someone. I hope. As for value for money, I've marked it as 5 based on the assumption that it will do it's bit if needed and then it will be worth every penny and some. At this time it has only been tested in the home and it has worked without issue.
