Teen Repellent Alarm Socks

So Dad will always be able to find a pair of socks, without holes.

Install the high-pitched teen repellent alarm in socks. The alarm will be activated by putting the sock on, and deactivated by code on a simple four-button touch pad.

The mechanism is sewn into the sole of the sock.

Of course, we oldies are likely to forget to deactivate, sending all teens fleeing from our presence everywhere we go. Call it an added bonus.

Here's one article about it, [Fuzzy Logic] [globaltourniquet, Aug 08 2007]

       No, you can't put something in the bottom of the sock because there will be a lump in your shoe.

       A bit pointless anyway, since it won't survive the wash. What's wrong with putting the alarm in your sock drawer? Or maybe just locking the bedroom door?   

       And in any case, what teenagers wear socks any more?

       Put it in the space between the ball and the toes, or in the arch, kind of on the side.

       What teenagers wear socks? Around here a teen wouldn't be caught dead without socks. My early teen cries if he has to go out without socks due to lack of clean ones. In fact, he will sooner wear the same pair for weeks than go without.   

       We can make the mechanism water-proof.

       ??? I wish I were in my 20's.

       I'm in my forties and I am not wearing socks. Or shoes for that matter. Working from home is nice that way.

       See link, [Fuzzy Logic].   

       It must be in socks so my teenage sons don't steal mine when theirs are too holey.
