A recent increase of attacks on seniors prompt local police to urge older residents to carry a tiny new safety device that can easily be used against attackers.
It was just a normal day at the grocery store for Taylor Franklin, a 66 year old woman from El Cajon, California... until everything went horribly wrong.
She had just left the store carrying her grocery bags, and was walking to her car when the unthinkable happened.
"I wasn't parked too far away, it was about a 60 second walk or so to my car from the store," she remembers, "and I kind of had that feeling I was being watched."
Right as she was unlocking her car, a man quickly came up behind her and tried to grab her.
"He told me 'don't fight, give me your wallet!' as he tried to wrestle my purse away. I was in shock. Luckily for me I remembered I had my Sound Safety Alarm on my purse, and since I was too scared to scream for help, I quickly reached for the alarm and pulled the pin."
"Immediately my Sound Safety Alarm started just screaming. I mean it was REALLY SCREAMING. He didn't know what to do! He froze for a second, then ran away like a bat out of hell! People heard the alarm and started yelling and running over to help. They said it was the Sound Safety Alarm that got their attention."
While Taylor was lucky enough to be carrying a Sound Safety Alarm, allowing her to escape her attacker unscathed, others weren't so lucky...
CNN recently reported that the rate of assault towards senior citizens have shockingly increased by 78% this year. Reasons are still unknown. However, many have suffered serious injuries and financial loss.
"This trend of targeting seniors is deeply disturbing, but it's a harsh reality we have to deal with. It is absolutely imperative that our elderly residents stay on high alert and protect themselves by carrying a personal alarm."
After her attack, Taylor bought the Sound Safety Alarm for her sisters, daughters, grandchildren and all of her friends.
"After the attack, I immediately bought 10 more Sound Safety Alarm for all of my friends and family. Now I know the people I care about most will be safe."
What Saved Her Life?
What saved Taylor's life is a safety device called Sound Safety Alarm. It is capable of creating a 125db sound that attracts attention and scares away potential assailants. To compare, it’s the same volume as a military jet during takeoff.
It’s also simple to use. Instead of having a button that could easily be pressed by accident, the Sound Safety Alarm device utilizes a pull-pin. Once pulled, the device emits its ear-piercing sound for up to 30 continuous minutes, or until the pin is replaced.
It can be reused over and over, and it easily attaches to purses, keys, and backpacks. It’s also small enough to fit in your pocket. But it packs a wallop.
Born Out of Tragedy
Henry Davidson, the inventor of Sound Safety Alarm, stands proudly at the podium during this year’s annual State of Violent Crime conference. He knows all too well the type of situation that Taylor found herself in. He hears it all the time. But that’s not the only type of situation that the Sound Safety Alarm helps protect against.
In fact, Henry knows all too well the experience of losing someone to a violent attack...
"I’ll never forget picking up the phone and hearing the news," Henry says.
Henry’s own daughter Sarah had just graduated high school and had planned to celebrate with some friends at a local restaurant. Running late, she told her friends to grab a table and she would meet them inside.
But she never showed up.
When she was late to dinner, her friends tried calling her phone, but Sarah didn’t pick up. After waiting for over an hour, they knew something was wrong. It was extremely unusual that Sarah would just blow off plans. They called the police, who came and investigated.
Sarah’s purse was found in the parking lot.
To this day, no one has heard from her...
“I pray everyday for Sarah to return to us,” Henry Davidson says, “And I never want any parent to go through what we’ve gone through. Sarah’s the whole inspiration for the Sound Safety Personal Alarm.”
After Sarah’s disappearance, Henry started researching the circumstances surrounding abductions.
"Police say the number-one reason that leads to successful kidnappings is the victim cannot make noise," Davidson, 52, says. "The kidnapper tries to keep the victim’s mouth shut. The ability to easily make noise is absolutely crucial."
Hearing this statistic gave Henry the idea for the focal point of the Sound Safety Alarm.
“I had two main focuses,” Henry says. “To make it as accessible and as loud as possible.”
But, Henry Davidson is hoping for more than just a kidnapping deterrent. He wants to help stop all kinds of crimes.
"It can be used fin so many different situations," he says.
"Parents can give it to their kids as an extra layer of protection. Teenagers can use it so they can feel safe walking home. Women can know it’s there when they have to use the parking garage at night.
My mother, who is 76 years old, carries it around in case she falls and needs to alert people for help. I only wish I’d have thought of it earlier..."
His voice trails off. It’s clear that his daughter remains heavy on his mind.
After Davidson is done speaking, Lisa and Christine get up to thank him personally for saving the young girl’s life. But they have to get in line. It seems that Christine isn’t the only person that the Sound Safety Alarm has helped…
Finally, after dozens of other people have had their turn to thank him, it’s their turn to speak to Henry. Christine begins to thank him, but her mother cuts her off by embracing the man tightly, saying "thank you so much," over and over.
It’s a story Davidson hears almost every day—how his Sound Safety Alarm device was able to help someone in need.
"But I never get tired of hearing it," he says with a smile.
Not just for the elderly...
The Sound Safety Personal Alarm has been helping people across the country, and it’s more than just the elderly.
Here are some of the people who are that much safer because of the Sound Safety Alarm.
- Women can use it as a crime deterrent, protecting themselves from attackers

Sound Safety Alarm has quickly developed a loyal following. Here are some customer reviews:

I wanted to see (and hear) the Sound Safety Alarm in action...
Luckily, Henry gave us a demonstration at the conference. First, he warned us and told us to cover our ears. Then, he pulled the pin…
It was unbelievable.
We were at an outdoor venue, and it felt like the noise was just filling up the entire field. It was easy to see how it stuns the attacker and attracts attention. It was simply the loudest thing I’ve ever experienced.
After a few seconds, Henry relieved us by re-inserting the pin, shutting off the noise.
When I spoke with Henry, he let me examine the Sound Safety Alarm for myself. I was impressed with the quality… it felt solid in my hand and I could tell it wasn’t something cheap that would break if dropped or anything like that. And the pin was big enough where if you were fumbling around for it but you couldn’t see it for whatever reason, you’d still be able to pull it when you needed to.
Plus, the battery will last more than 3 months if you pull the pin 100 times in that time period. I’d say that’s pretty good.
Henry even gave me a Sound Safety Alarm as a gift, which I in turn gave to my mother, as she lives alone and needs to alert somebody if something happens.
How much does it cost? (And is it worth the price?)
The Sound Safety Alarm is currently sold online for $39.95 per two devices. They offer further discounts if you buy in bigger bulk, which I know many good parents will do.
The best part, all Sound Safety Alarm orders ship from USA.
While the Sound Safety Alarm was originally made to protect younger women and children, massive orders are coming in from seniors everywhere, and it is quickly becoming the most popular gift idea in 2019.
As far as value, it’s definitely worth the price. Knowing that my mom is safe in case of a fall, or that my daughter is protected on the way home from school, the Sound Safety Alarm has given me peace of mind that you simply can’t put a price tag on.
