SeaSense Safety Blaster Horn
Why would anyone buy an air horn?
We just purchased the Seasense Safety Blaster Horn and were so amazed by how loud this thing is! We just bought our first boat and wanted an airhorn and I saw this product and thought we'd try it out. It's less expensive, it won't run out of air, it doesn't need to be replaced or re-charged, produces no waste - just blow in the hole and hold your ears! This is going to be fun to take to football games too. After purchasing this product...why would anyone buy a traditional air horn?

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.

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.

It has a kind of funny, raspy, sound, like a party horn on steroids. It is very loud. Unfortunately being a mouth blown horn the origin of that sound is uncomfortably close to the ears, but I pretty much knew that going in. The design could be refined to place the business end further away from the ears. Overall I like the product and would buy it again, based on price, sustainability/environmentally friendly, and functionality.
Pretty much it's a cheep, guilt free, and efective way to get the job done.
