It's called the Screaming Meanie because it sounds an extremely loud alarm until you turn it off. Created for long-haul truck drivers, the Screaming Meanie is designed to get you out of bed, no matter what. We also find it useful in a noisy situation where an alarm must be heard, or for anyone with hearing loss who is looking for a very loud alarm.

When it goes off it sounds like screaming demons from Hell or a very loud smoke alarm. You have to push buttons in a certain sequence to turn it off, but that makes sure you're awake.
They're battery operated so you can take it anywhere and they're about the size and shape of a flashlight.
