Cell Lock-Up

This item is designed to limit annoying cell phone interruptions: no more calls during dinner...no more on-the-sly texting and game playing...no more distractions to family quality time.

Cell Lock-Up "imprisons" up to six cell phones at a time, complete with bunk beds and stanchions. To maintain the peace, cell phones are sentenced to 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes with an easy-to-use push button timer. A judge's voice announces the sentence as the door clangs shut.

Once all cell phones have served their time, the judge issues his decree that "justice is served," and the cell phone users are "free to rejoin digital society!" And if someone tries to spring a phone before time is up, an alarm sounds and a guard announces, "Alert! Alert! Break-out in progress!"

Whether it's family time, a business meeting, dinner party or other social interaction, Cell Lock-Up is a amusing antidote to cell phone addiction. Cell Lock-Up is available at retail stores including Bed Bath & Beyond and at www.celllockup
