Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

ChildSafe1 is the world’s most advanced method of stopping a child from pulling a gun’s trigger while also making the gun ready to fire almost immediately. The patented trigger block uses a “childproof medicine bottlecap” approach, coupled with a loud alarm to frighten children and warn parents. No child has ever figured out how to remove the device – and the strong spring would be too much for children to compress if they did locate the hidden buttons. Trained adults can remove the block in 2 seconds, quietly and in the dark, giving them more precious seconds in an emergency. With ChildSafe1 everyone is safer and has greater peace of mind.
The ChildSafe1 Premier Test Program demonstrated that children two to nine years of age were unable to open the ChildSafe1 device. The ChildSafe1 System design is similar to the safety caps used in home medicine bottles. Children do not have the required finger strength, dexterity, or knowledge of the location of the stealth buttons to open the gun.
ChildSafe1 was specifically designed to meet two requirements: Keep children safe if they find the gun, and keep the family safe in an emergency. ChildSafe1 can be ready to fire in less than 2 seconds. See video in the What If tab to see just how fast!
The ChildSafe1 device weighs only 3.2 ounces. The Remote Control weighs 1.4 ounces and the Stealth Camera weighs 1.1 ounces. All weights include batteries and fully functional devices.
The alarm is ninety-five decibels (DB) at ten feet. The second alarm blares at 95 decibels as soon as ChildSafe1 is removed. A standard smoke alarm is about 85 decibels. Most children are frightened and run away. The alarm can be silenced at night, and easily rearmed with the click of two buttons.
The alarm will stop working after approximately sixty uninterrupted minutes or when the proper codes are input to the device.
