It DOES work--read on !!!
Just picked up from store delivery -- blew in side hole... NO noise. Read multiple reviews on many sites; one suggested removing large end with holes covering membrane to be sure membrane not stuck. Couldn't get end off, but did take tubes apart and with Q-TIP GENTLY swabbed entire membrane until I could sense it was "floating free." Reassembled and tried a gentle puff in side hole and like many reviews said, SO LOUD it hurt my ear (noise comes out open end). I will put a finger in that ear next time; bought to have on me when walking my dogs to scare off coyotes.

Loud!! Easy to blow!!
Whoever is putting low reviews for this horn, is probably using it incorrectly. There is a small hole on the side of the white portion where you blow through, not through the ends. It is extremely loud and my 8 year old can blow on it with no problems. Perfect for a emergency situation, I woke up everyone in the block this morning trying them out.

I have to assume that anyone who gave this horn a 1 star rating was blowing into the wrong hole. You must blow into the small hole on the white part of the horn, not the large opening at the end of the orange part. It would have been nice if there were some sort of instructions on the packaging, as I spent about 5 minutes trying to get it to work by blowing in the orange end.
It is loud, which is a good thing, and it takes very little breath to achieve a sound that makes me believe the claim that it can be heard a 1 mile away. This is a nice, inexpensive, alternative to a standard air horn, and I like to have this in my kayak for peace of mind especially in high traffic areas.
