Fight Teen Drinking and Drug Use with The Bottle Blocker

According to the U.S. Surgeon General, alcohol is the most widely abused substance among America’s youth: “Today, nearly 10.8 million youths, ages 12-20, are underage drinkers".

A Long Island man has come up with a deterrent to underage drinking: the BOTTLE BLOCKER, a patent-pending, tamper-proof device that will lock any bottle with a neck. It works on liquor bottles of all shapes and sizes, pill bottles, and even on the bottles of detergent or drain cleaner so tempting and dangerous to toddlers. There is nothing like this on the market today, providing piece of mind at an affordable price.

Richard Michiel, of Nesconset, NY, worked on this idea for years before bringing it to market on http://www.BottleBlocker.com just in time to deter teen sneak-drinking during the holiday season.

These tamper-proof locks are available in kits big enough to take care of the average home’s liquor supply, and still have enough left for replacements--and the cost is just under $20.00.

No one can totally prevent kids that are motivated from doing something they know they are not supposed to do. It’s part of what makes a teenager a teenager. However, if they know they are going to get caught, there’s a good chance they won’t do it in the first place. That’s the beauty of this simple-but-elegant solution: The lock must be cut off to gain access to the bottle; it cannot be replaced unless you have access to the replacements.

According to the U.S. Surgeon General, alcohol is the most widely abused substance among America’s youth: “Today, nearly 10.8 million youths, ages 12-20, are underage drinkers...Each year, approximately 5,000 people under the age of 21 die as a result of underage drinking.”

The consequences of underage drinking can reach beyond human tragedy. If your kid or anyone’s kid drinks your alcohol and then has an auto accident, you as the homeowner are responsible under the law. With the BOTTLE BLOCKER, you stand a much better chance that the party won’t be at your house.

http://www.BottleBlocker.com offers a basic kit with 24 units, a simple cutter to remove the locks, ­and a deluxe kit that comes with 24 units, a cutter, and a locking box to hold all your supplies and prevent unauthorized access to the replacement parts.

Make an investment in your child’s future. Help save some lives. Use the BOTTLE BLOCKER. Mr. Michiel can be reached at: richard(at)bottleblocker(dot)com
