The Protector whistle is the first and only hygienically minded whistle. Whistle vents positioned underneath the mouthpiece, opposite traditional whistles, direct air particles & spit droplets down, away from players, fans, and your crew mates.

The Protector Whistle maintains the quality sound performance of a pealess whistle without sharing germs with others each time the whistle is blown, generally 100 - 150 times per game. The Protector Whistle will be used by referees in the upcoming 2023 ACC and SEC conferences, among others, this basketball season.

As sports officials, we are charged with holding a safe and fair contest. Make the safe call with the The Protector Whistle!


  • Hygienic whistle choice of referees and coaches
  • Same classic sound, but none of the spit
  • Droplets reduced by 95%+
  • Comfortable, food-grade silicon mouth grip will not deteriorate
  • Removable & Replaceable Cushioned Mouth Grip
  • Lanyard Clip Loop
  • Resealable packaging for storage

It's great in a sense and fits the mouth well but the downsides are it can't be used for basketball because it doesn't sound like a Fox 40. And if you're doing volleyball, your chin gets drenched.

I bought 3 of these. One for myself and 2 others for my regular partners. This whistle is absolutely horrible. The concept is great; application is unusable. DO NOT GET THIS! We tried these multiple times and the sound was laughable. The guy who rated this 5 stars must have stock. Gene owes everyone an apology for this tragedy. This is the nicest thing I could have said about this product.

The whistle did not sound right and has to fit in mouth exactly right or else it gets blocked by lips.
