Yes and YES! When worn the ‘Childproof Way,’ it is nearly impossible for a young child to remove the Alert Me Band on his/her own. If your child, under 5 years old, is able to remove his band himself when worn correctly within 3 days after receiving the band, please contact us for a refund (or simply use the included locking tie). That is how confident we are that the Alert Me Band is the only wristband in the market that is nearly impossible for a young child to remove on his own when correctly worn the ‘childproof way.’ Most adults cannot remove the band on their own when worn the ‘childproof way.’ You can follow the ‘Extra Tip’ and use the included Locking Tie to make it impossible for anyone, regardless of age, to remove on his/her own. Please watch this video for step-by-step instructions on how to wear our Alert Me Band the ‘Childproof Way’ and/or with the Locking Tie.
To make it nearly impossible for a young child to remove, fasten the band on the wrist of the child’s preferred hand with our logo facing away from your child; so that the child sees the logo/text upside down and you see it right side up if you are standing in front of your child. Apply the included velcro strip to keep the excess band tucked away and to prevent your child from loosening the band in an attempt to make it larger to slip it over the wrist. The band should be snug, only a pinky finger should be able to fit in between the band and the wrist. When worn snug on a child’s preferred hand, it is nearly impossible for a child to remove the band without assistance; when the band is worn snug it takes more than one hand to get enough leverage to unhook the clip.
To childproof your band or to keep the excess band tucked under, simply use the included Velcro strip to keep it in place. Adjust the band snug to your child’s wrist to get proper sizing. Line up and match the strips, one on each side. Firmly press down. Please watch the above video for a visual of how the velcro should be affixed to the band
To make it easy for adults or older children to put on and take off their band themselves, fasten the band on your non-preferred hand’s wrist with the logo/text facing you so that you can read it.
The clip is meant to be permanently affixed to the band so please do not cut it off because the detached clip could be a choking hazard to young children. You should not be able to pull the clip off of the band; at any point should you be able to remove the clip, contact us immediately and we will send you a replacement at no charge.
Not to worry! The Alert Me Band is one size fits all and is guaranteed to fit your child’s small wrist perfectly with room to grow! Because it is adjustable it will fit a small child to an average size adult wrist (<7.5 inches) comfortably.
No, not at all! Any age from toddler to adult can wear this one size fits all Alert Me Band. Any person can benefit in an emergency situation by wearing the Alert Me Band that will communicate to a First Responder your family member/friend/guardian’s telephone number.
