Carbon Monoxide Alarms in Truck Cab Sleeper Compartments Can Save Drivers' Lives

by Barbara 11. May 2011 06:48

Question about the Safe-T-Alert SURFACE Mount 12V RV and Carbon Monoxide Alarm, White, 65-541.

Q: "Which carbon monoxide alarm would you recommend for use in a truck sleep compartment? I manage a large trucking company and am concerned about carbon monoxide leaking into the sleeper compartments.We have now begun installing auxilliary power units so the truck can be heated and cooled when the driver is sleeping. Thanks. Thomas."

Answer: A large trucking company in the Eastern part of the USA began purchasing the Safe-T-Alert SURFACE Mount 12V 65-541 Carbon Monoxide Monitor in 2005. Their initial purchase was 60 units. Since then, as they add new trucks, they purchase new units. And as the sensor life expires for the units, they replace them. This CO monitor/alarm also comes in a Safe-T-Alert 65-541 Black. New smaller units, the Safe-T-Alert 62-542-WT 12V CO Alarm, Flush Mount, White and the Safe-T-Alert 62-541-BL 12V CO Alarm, Surface Mount, Black are other options. Both come in white or black. The dimensions of the surface mount are 3.5 x 2.5x 1.25 inches deep. A mounting bracket is included. The flush mount is 4.5 x 3.25 x 1.25 inches deep. Shelf life is 10 years; usable life from time power is applied is 5 years maximum.

This is from our customer, dated today, May 22, 2011. "We had an incident several years ago that involved a driver being overcome by Carbon Monoxide in the sleeper of a truck that required medical treatment. It was traced back to an exhaust leak under the cab. Our safety committee reviewed the incident and decided we should look in to installing CO alarms in the sleeping compartments of the trucks. I did research on several types and choice to use the model/style you offer. Also within the last couple of years we have been installing A.P.U.'s (auxiliary power units) on our trucks. They are used in place of the chassis engine running while cooling and heating the truck when the driver is sleeping. This little internal combustion engine produces CO, and is located lower than the sleeper, so it is an extra safety tool while using those small engines. I hope this gives you a little information on why and where we use them."

I hope this helps with your decision. Carbon monoxide is a silent killer that, if it does not kill, can cause permanent brain damage.

Sincerely, Barbara

 

Protect with A & D Ointment or Moisturize Skin or Use with Tattooing

by Barbara 4. August 2010 07:51

Question about Case of 12 15 oz jars of A & D Ointment and Case of 144 5 gram foil packets of A & D Ointment

Q: "I recently got a tattoo and was surprised that the artist used A & D Ointment both to hold the ink on his "palette" and to stop minor bleeding during the process. I've never used A & D Ointment myself. What other uses does it have? Thanks. Roger"

Answer: A & D Ointment is a petroleum and lanolin-based ointment that contains both vitamin A and vitamin D.  Mothers use this for diaper rash, both as prevention and to soothe sore skin. It is a great moisturizer for hands and feet or any dry spots on your body.

For example, the bottoms of my feet get very dry in the winter. I used the thick white greasy moisturizer and also plain petroleum jelly. The results were not fast or very good.Then my mom told me how A & D ointment healed some dry, itchy spots she had. So now I cover my feet, primarily the soles and heels with A & D ointment after I get into bed. Then I put on "short" athletic socks and go to sleep. I try to remember to do this after my morning shower and then put on athletic shoes. (Lucky me, I don't have to dress up for work!).  Even if I forget a day or two, my feet are in much better condition than left untreated. You can do the same for dry, cracked hands: put on cotton gloves afterwards or a pair of socks after applying and go to sleep.

A & D has few ingredients besides the vitamins, the lanolin and the petroleum. It is highly unlikely to cause a skin irritation even among the most sensitive persons. Commonly, A & D is used for  treatment and prevention of diaper rash, to temporarily protect minor cuts, scrapes, and burns, to temporarily protect and help relieve chapped, chafed, or cracked skin and lips and to help protect from the drying effects of wind and cold weather. (Yes, you can save on those roll-on sticks for chapped lips with a tube of A & D ointment.

I was surprised with our first sales to tattoo artists. For tattoo artists, nursing homes, hospitals, etc, consider the Larger box of 864 individual foil packets of A & D Ointment.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara

 

Use Pet-2-Ring Dog Door Bell or Pet Chime for Housebreaking Puppies and Dogs

by Barbara 6. March 2009 11:39

Question about the Pet-2-Ring Dog Door Bell and the Pet Chime by Lentek-Koolatron.

Q: "I have a quiet dog, virtually a non-barker. I need to know when she has to go outside to potty. Where can I find a dog doorbell that uses batteries? I don't want bells hanging from the ceiling or from the door knob like the bells on Santa's sleigh/" Thanks. Joe.

Answer: We currently sell two different dog door bells. The Pet Chime by Lentek-Koolatron has two parts, the paw transmitter and the receiver. The Pet-2-Ring Dog Door Bell has a platform lever that pushes a round door bell knob. The Pet-2-Ring lever takes only a light touch anywhere on the large 7 inch by 6 inch panel to cause the door chime to sound.

The Pet-2-Ring is a new product, Made in USA. The weatherproof plastic base dog doorbell receiver and transmitter can sit as a single unit on the floor near a door to your yard. Wall mount the unit if you wish,hardware included). The receiver is small and can be placed on a table, window sill, shelf, etc. The advantages of the Pet-2-Ring unit include the large platform, the sensitivity (only a gentle touch is needed to activate the chime) and the 100 ft range. Because the unit uses C batteries, transmitter battery life is typically a year or more.. The receiver unit  includes a replaceable lithum battery that can last 2 years or more. Purchase two units if you want one inside your home and one outside. The advantage is that you can now place each receiver 100 ft from the door. This means you can have one upstairs and one downstairs or at each end of a larger home.  Pet2-Ring dog door bells can also be used for outdoor/indoor cats. Many service dogs for those with brittle diabetes are trained to use the Pet-2-Ring rather than to bark when glycemic levels change.

We've sold the Pet Chime for many years.  The receiver generates either a door chime sound or a barking dog sound. Frankly, I never advise the barking dog sound as it could encourage a dog to bark in return.  Extra paws are available: you can use the same receiver for 1 or more paws. The chime is the same so you may get some exercise if you have more than one door into your fenced back yard. The Paw requires more pressure than the Pet-2-Ring to transmit to the receiver. Also the Pet Chime is less waterproof due to the open space around the paw. The Pet Paw uses one 9 volt battery: the receiver chime uses 3 AAA batteries. Unless you put the Paw in a waterproof bag, the Paw may fail if exposed to rain or snow.. The Paw activates a chime placed at 30 to 100 ft away.  This is Made in China.

Thanks for your question. Enjoy your dog.

Sincerely, Barbara

Sensaphone Magnetic Reed Switch Monitors Doors and Windows

by Barbara 10. September 2008 07:29

Question about the Product: FGD-0006 Magnetic Reed Switch

Q: "I own several convenience stores that accept delivery at the rear of the store. I want to install these switches on the rear doors and on the front doors into each store so that my clerks know when the doors are opened. Is this switch normally closed? Or normally open? Does the magnet hold it open? Thanks, Basil"

Answer: Yes, this switch will meet your needs for monitoring doors. In combination with a Sensaphone system, you'd have all the monitoring capabilities you'd even need without paying for an alarm monitoring service.  The magnetic reed switch may be used with all Sensaphone models to detect any unauthorized entry or intrusion. They are usually installed on doors and windows to detect their opening and closing. Several magnetic reed switches may be wired in series.

My Sensaphone sales rep sent me this response. "The magnetic reed switch monitors the opening and closing of doors. So, this sensor can be configured as normally open or normally closed dependent upon whether the customer wants to monitor the door opening or closing."

From the spec sheet, I also gleaned the following.
Description: The magnetic reed switch may be used with all Sensaphone models to detect any unauthorized entry or intrusion. They are usually installed on doors and windows to detect their opening and closing. Several magnetic reed switches may be
wired in series.

Each FGD-006 package contains:
(1) Sensor
(1) Spacer
(1) Sensor Casing
(1) Magnet
(4) Mounting Screws
(1) Installation Instructions

Dimensions:
Part w/ screw terminals: 2.5 inches x .75 inches x .5 inches
Part w/ magnet: 2.5 inches x .75 inches x about .75 inches
Housing: White plastic

Thank you for your questions.

Sincerely, Barbara

How Cool Does A Cooler Cool?

by Barbara 22. June 2008 08:07

Question about the product, Koolatron Krusader 12V Thermoelectric Cooler 52 Qt.

Question: Your information says these coolers keep items cool to 45-50 degrees below the ambient temperature. Does that mean if the inside temperature of my car is 80 degrees it will cool items in the cooler to 35-40 degrees? Thank you in advance for your response." Gary

Answer: We checked with Koolatron, the manufacturer of the Krusader and other thermoelectric cooler models. Here is their representative's response:

"Your customer is correct, the ambient temperature is the temperature within the environment where the cooler is placed. If the cooler is in his car, and it is 80 degrees, the Krusader or other Koolatron coolers will cool down to a low of 35 degrees inside the cooler. Please note that thermoelectric coolers do not reach freezing, so 35 degrees is the coldest the cooler will get inside. In other words, if the inside of the car is 65 degrees, the temperature inside the cooler will go down to around the 35 degree level, not down to 15 to 20 degrees F."

We recommend that you purchase an AC adapter and precool the unit before moving to your vehicle. During your trip, use AC to power the cooler at night if your camp site has AC available or use AC in your motel or hotel room.

Please contact us if you have additional questions. We sell several brands of thermoelectric coolers and warmers including Koolatron and Vector.

Sincerely, Barbara

Are Pet Chime Paws Weatherproof

by Barbara 19. September 2000 15:31

Question about Lentek Koolatron Pet Chimes for Dogs or Cats

Q: "Are the pet chime paws (transmitters) weatherproof and hence suitable for outside use?"

Answer: According to Koolatron, the manufacturer, the paw is essentially weatherproof/water resistant.

  • The paw shelters the electronic components.
  • Seal the paw in a baggie placing it where it may be flooded or doused by torrential rains.
  • Or mount the paw outdoors on a wall or under a protective overhang.
  • Use an additional paw for the dog to signal that it wants to go outside.

Sincerely, Barbara
