Rayovac Shines Light on Halloween Safety

Madison, WI - 10/19/2010


Tips to Power a Fun and Spooktacular Holiday

Madison , WIS. October 19, 2010 – Halloween can be a scream.  But, it’s important to take safety precautions so children have a fun and safe Halloween.  Rayovac flashlights and batteries have the powerful and reliable light you need for Halloween’s fright night.  Keep your “little monsters” safe with these fiendishly simple trick-or-treating tips:

All Dressed Up

Don’t let your princess, ghost or superhero leave the house without a flashlight, a must-have Halloween costume accessory.  The Rayovac Brilliant Solutions LED flashlight will illuminate sidewalks, porches and more so trick-or-treaters don’t trip and hurt themselves.  Make sure flashlights have fresh batteries and that adults in the group carry one as well. 

To further illuminate decked-out children, consider adding reflective tape to treat bags and costumes.  Additionally, ensure costumes are flame resistant and fit children properly – trim the length if necessary to avoid tripping.    


Fire-Free Halloween

Halloween décor doesn’t seem complete without spooky, flickering flames.  Fear not, with a few tricks of the trade you can haunt your house without the hazards of real candles.  Stock up on Rayovac batteries and flashlights so you can keep these “boo-tiful” decorating ideas burning:

Create a Flash-O-Lantern

  • Avoid dangerous flames by simply lighting up your carved pumpkin with a flashlight. Place a compact Rayovac Value Bright or Brilliant Solutions flashlight (2AA or 2AAA sized) inside the base of the pumpkin to achieve the ghostly glow. These long lasting flashlights are only $5 and are available at major retailers across the country. 

    Flameless Flicker

  • Battery-operated flameless candles in luminaries along your walkway welcome trick-or-treaters and won’t flicker out with wind. 
  • Illuminate windows with candles of the flameless variety without the fear of curtains or blinds getting caught in the flame.

Halloween is fun for kids of all ages.  With a little preparation it can be a thrill for everyone!
