Just put it in your mouth, hold and blow.:whistling:

Any Lifeguard will tell you that these whistles are not good. The metal plate chips and splinters cut into your lip. I've been in the business for years and take it from me...buy plastic every time!

Sweet Jesus, Whistle agro! :whistling:

These whistles are one of the few things still manufactured in Britain too!

These whistles are great for getting the wifes attention. I personally use 1 long whistle for "bring me a bottle of beer" and 3 quick shrills for "get me food" and from time to time 2 quick bursts followed by one long burst for "run me a bath". :whistling:

i nicked one of these off my PE teacher back in the rave days of the early 90s, effortless whistle posse shennanigans

maybe buy one of these to blow in my bosses face when i get a new job

I use a ]Acme Tornado. They have become the norm for us hockey umpires since they are very loud. Great price on here for them so wll be getting a spare.

Personally a fan of the Thunderer because it's nice a loud and I tend to chew the plastic ones. I also like to clean mine by placing in boiling water, which I'm not sure you can do with the plastic, but I've never tried.
