    Chad's Crappy Corner & His Second Gadget For His New April Theme! 

    Chad polled our loyal Patreon members and asked them to vote on his cheap theme for April. Their choice? Cheap Security Gadgets. This week Chad's pick is the SABRE Door Stop Alarm.

    Here's a bit of info from Amazon: The SABRE Door Stop Alarm offers a practical, inexpensive means to help protect yourself and safeguard your belongings. The Door Stop Alarm is battery operated with a built in siren. It is portable and doesn’t require any wiring or complicated installation making it ideal for bedrooms, apartments and dorms as well as for hotel rooms when traveling. Pressure from an inward opening door sets off a 120 dB alarm that is likely to startle and scare off an intruder and wake you. Also, the anti-skid pad helps prevent door from opening. This is one of the only alarms which helps physically prevent an intruder from entering your bedroom or through other inward opening doors. $9.99


    And Chad's take? Chad thought this was a great buy for under $10. And he said the 120 dB alarm is LOUD!! It takes a 9 volt battery, and there is screw to close the battery compartment if you want to use it. Chad's only complaint is that he wishes the door stop was a bit taller. It worked fine on his door, but he thought it might not work if you had a door with a very wide opening at the bottom. Otherwise it's a good and inexpensive safety gadget!
