» Dance Hard; Drink Safe
The last thing you want to do when you’re out chilling with your friends is watch your drink 24/7 to ensure no one tampers with it and drink spiking is more common than you might think. Every year thousands of victims report spiking related crime, and even more don’t through a mix of embarrassment and uncertainty.
Drink spiking is mean spirited, cowardly and hugely damaging. Victims are left physically violated, confused and with mental scars that may take years to fade. That’s not a good night out in anyone’s book.
Safeflo will watch your drink for you. Just pop a cap over the neck of an opened bottle and you’ve got yourself instant protection and peace of mind. The cap won’t come off and you can drink as normal either straight from the bottle or using a straw.
All that’s left to do is focus 100% on having fun, big time.
Buy your Safeflo caps online here or from the vending machine at selected bars and clubs.
» Safeflo: Looking Out for You
Safeflo has been tested and recommended by Police forces across the UK after thorough testing and is currently endorsed by CrimeStoppers.
Safeflo has been researched, designed and brought to market by the company’s directors who have been working with scientists, major drinks brands and bar chains, safety organisations, law enforcement and crime prevention bodies across the country to come up with a product that is affordable, accessible, neat, fast and easy to use and, most of all, safe.
“The best way to support a victim of drink spiking is to stop them becoming a victim in the first place. This product is about personal protection. It locks your drink away from spikers and gives drinkers the freedom of a carefree night out.”
You may think the product is aimed exclusively at young women, but this isn’t the case. While women make up the majority of cases, where the motive has been sexual, spiking crime is also on the rise where men are the victims, regaining their senses to find cash and credit cards stolen.
“You put your seat belt on when you get in the car, you put a crash helmet on when you ride a motorbike and you ensure your money is kept close to you and out of sight. Basic safety precautions we take every day without giving them a second thought. Safeflo protection has to become a ‘good habit’ in the same way. It puts you back in the driving seat.”

Statistics about spiking UK and worldwide.
Well, the statistics speak for themselves. According to Graham Rhodes of the Roofie Foundation, an organisation set up in 1997 to help victims of drug-assisted rape and campaign for increased sentencing, there may be as many as 2,000 cases of drug-assisted robbery each year compared to about 900 incidents of drug-assisted rape.
Although the drug is most commonly used by men against women, one-in-10 victims of drug-assisted sexual assault is male.
