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

I brought the Fox 40 whistle, and I have to say it’s not a good whistle. It’s not very loud and the lip part isn’t long enough. This made it difficult to hold and blow at the same time. I wouldn’t recommend. It’s a 1 at best.

It took me a minute to get used to how to blow it, but it sounded great once I did. The mouth grip is really nice, and the hygienic benefit of not blowing spit everywhere is a no-brainer.

Sound holes on the bottom of the whistle sit too close to the mouth, and it causes the whistle to not sound. The only way to get it to work is to barely hold it in your lips.

Take time to familiarize yourself with the Protector Whistle. Find how to properly place the whistle, and keep the chambers clear.
