Halloween is not the only time parents (and all of us) should be concerned about making sure we are visible in the night. The statistics are out there – runners, bikers, and even children walking home from a friend’s house can come to serious harm when other vehicles are surprised by a sudden obstacle that seemingly appears out of nowhere.
Pat Bay International, a Canadian company, makes products for the household, children, adults and even pets to help us all stay safe in the dark. The fact is, it does not have to be completely dark out for others to have trouble seeing you when you are walking or biking on the side of a road. With winter slowly creeping up on us, I’m reminded of how difficult it can be to see pedestrians against the white blanket of snowbanks on the side of the street, even in mid-afternoon.
People who regularly partake in outdoor activities (runners, bikers, etc.) usually are already aware of the safety measures they should take. It’s those of us who are new to the outdoor game – new moms walking with strollers or the owner of a new puppy that needs to get out for daily walks, even a senior who has been told that a daily walk will be good for their health – that could benefit from these products immensely.
Checking out the site for the first time, I was really impressed with the prices – it’s easy to encourage others to stay safe when they don’t have to spend a lot to do so.
A recent customer testimonial on the website is worth sharing with readers – this customer used the Reflective Personal Band ($13.49) on her baby stroller – great idea!
Hello, I wanted to drop a note and say how happy I am with your product. I know that wearing has saved me and my dog (and now my baby !) several times. I have the waist reflector for me, the reflector on the dog collar and I put a waist reflector on the stroller. There are blind hills in our neighborhood and people drive too fast. I have seen people slam on the brakes and move over when they see me. And now they can see me before they are right on top of me ! I know I will getting more of these as our baby grows, so that she can be seen before it’s too late. I have given your web site to other dog walkers in the neighborhood, when I noticed that I couldn’t see them until I was too close.
Thank you for a great product !
Pat Bay International also makes products for indoors as well – including Find A Light – a patent pending glow in the dark switch plate accent that helps both young and old find their way in the dark. These secure to your switch plate using the screws already there, and store daylight to help you overnight. I think this product would be great for little kids to help find their way to the bathroom at night, and for the elderly to easily find a light switch reducing injury in the dark. Three Find A Light switch plate accents come in a package for $4.99.
Pat Bay International also keeps your shipping costs down – most items ship for $0.80 cents (!!!) except the Reflective Waist Bands and the Glo Plate which both ship for $1.20 each. Wow!
