Sometimes you run across a product and think... that shouldn't exist.
This comes to mind.
However, the Flowbee is harmless. A product that is fire protection related, but doesn't save lives is a whole other story.
Below are three products that our F.E. Moran Special Hazard Systems' employees have run across and instantly thought - that spells disaster.
1. Fire sprinkler attached to a hose.
The SHS president, Daryl Bessa found this item at a home improvement store. Fire sprinklers should not be attached to hoses. The water pressure isn't adequate. The design makes no sense. Plus, it gives a false sense of security.
2. Jokester "Fire Alarm"
"Pull in Case of Dark"
Let's say there was a fire, and this was on the wall (FYI - there is an attachment to put this on the wall). It is smokey. The lights have been cut. You pull it, thinking that an alarm is going to go off. Then, a light pops on.
This joke fire alarm could end up causing someone's death.
3. Fire extinguisher/lighter/keychain
Not only is this a keychain, it is also a lighter. As an FYI, all you need to do is tap the handle of the extinguisher to light the lighter. Do you keep your keys in your pocket? I do. It wouldn't take much more than a shift to start a fire in your pants.
