Some Products Are Just Well Made

I guess this can be said for the clock and especially the battery or batteries. Not sure if it has one or two or a rechargeable type battery ... still an amazing story. The battery or batteries haven't corroded or starting leaking yet.

I would think it would kind of be 'like an old friendly sound' now ... probably would miss it if it does finally stop one day.

Pennsylvania Alarm Clock Stuck in Wall for 13 Years Goes Off Every Day

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/06/20/pennsylvania-alarm-clock-stuck-in-wall-for-13-years-goes-off-every-day.html

June 20, 2017 - Fox News

A Pennsylvania homeowner is reminded of the alarm clock that's stuck in the wall of his home when it goes off -- every day for the last 13 years. 

Jerry Lynn told KDKA that he dropped the alarm clock in September 2004 while trying to drill a hole in the living room wall of his home in Ross. Lynn said he was using the alarm clock to pinpoint the spot where he could run a wire to connect his television. 

"As I was laying it down, all of a sudden I heard it go ‘thunk!’ as it came loose," Lynn told the news station. "I thought, well, that’s not a real problem. You know it’s still going to go off. And it did."

Lynn and his wife Sylvia thought the clock's battery would run out in three or four months, but 13 years later, they're still hearing the beeps. 

"It is still going off every day. And during Daylight Saving Time it goes off at ten minutes ’til eight. And during standard time it goes off at ten minutes to seven at night," Lynn said. 

The couple said the alarm starts off as soft "beep, beep, beeps" and increasingly gets louder and closer together. 

"That will set people like, 'What is that?'" Sylvia Lynn said. 

The couple said for them, the alarm has become a routine sound they hear every night.
