The LintAlert Retailing SolutionsHome Safety Product for Retail
Home Safety

The LintAlert®, a to-the-consumer plug-in security device that senses the slow build-up of back-pressure caused by lint buildup, a blocked termination or a kinked dryer hose; alerts the home owner to take action by inspecting the dryers exhaust conduit. The product is proudly made and assembled in the United States.

The inspiration for a lint sensing device was influenced greatly from the significant number of dryer related house fires. A large percentage of these vicious fires were due to lack of maintenance to the dryer's exhaust system.

Retailer considerations:

1. Does it solve a problem? Lint build-up in the exhaust conduit of the dryer is a real issue and does happen. Two serious consequences are longer dryer cycles (waste energy) and the increase of a fire hazard. There is no debate that dryer fires are common and that they cause property damage and numerous fatalities annually.

2. How big is the problem it solves? Popular issues: Energy and Security. Energy conservation is a huge issue and one you hear about everyday. Dryer fires happen 40 times a day in our country.

3. How good is the solution? Until now, there was no means or mechanism to identify a “clogged dryer vent syndrome”. Monitoring the progression of back pressure in the dryers’ exhaust conduit apparently is the best means to identify this problem. Today’s precise and sensitive low-flow digital differential air pressure sensor indicates the solution is a viable one.

Green Packaging: Custom thermoformed tamperproof clamshell design approximately 6.5” wide by 8.5” high by .020 thick. As an option we can use a PET material with a 25% post consumer content and the package is capable of hanging or standing upright. Card-stock features environmentally friendly printing. High-quality recycled and chlorine-free papers, the use of soy and vegetable based inks and Zero VOC solvents. The Sensormatic Ultra•Strip® EAS labels popular with retailers can be applied (optional).

Our company believes that we each have a personal responsibility to do our part to make the world a better and safer place for our children and future generations. The products we make and the inventiveness we support demonstrate that we live in a way that is consistent with our values.

In our opinion the LintAlert® would enhance and contribute to other security and safety related products as well as be a popular product in the dryer venting accessories isle and the appliance accessories. Become a retailer today!
