Dog proof 😊

Love this vial protecter, been on insulin 22 years with dropping and breaking one. Now with this protection I’m not as worried about my dogs knocking them over or me breaking one. Thanks 😊

Vial safe is amazing!!

Vial safe is amazing!!!! It keeps my vials protected from drops. I love that it comes in different colors. The first time I purchased I fell in love that I had to purchase more colors. I love that it comes in multiple colors. Thank you so much vial safe for keeping my insulin safe (:

Protective

Wish I had found these before I dropped and broke a vial of insulin. They work well and are easy to use.

Buy it

Omg these things were life changing for us! We have a type 1 in the house and we have dropped and lost insulin before. We've dropped the vial a couple of times with this on and it has saved it!

Money-saver!

After breaking a $65 bottle of vetsulin (insulin for dogs) I ordered a pack of these. Easier to handle the tiny bottle, fits adequately, easy to take on and off. Definitely a money saver!

Saved me!

Perfect item after dropping and breaking two bottles of insulin. No worries about that now!

Really WELL designed.

Very Thick, Soft and protective. THOUGH I thought it would cover the needle insertion area. Most will be Glad it doesn't but I thought it would for sanitary reasons in my pack.

Works Very Well

After dropping a $142.00 vial of Novolin R on a tile floor & having it shatter, I was looking for a way to prevent that in the future. I saw the typical sleeves made my other manufacturers & I was about to purchase one of them. Then I saw these. The main advantage is the type of insulin and the amount left in the vial are visible - unlike other brands that cover the entire vial. And, the silicone provides a much-better grip than the slippery glass the vial is made of.
When I initially saw these, I was disappointed at the rather large openings in the side of the sleeve because it looked like a large section of the vial was unprotected. But after slipping the sleeve on the vial, I noted that there is a raised ridge around the opening that provides protection. After installing the sleeve, I tapped the vial on a hard surface & even on the section with the opening, the vial did not contact the surface, so it looks like that raised ridge still protects the vial. I would have liked less of the vial exposed, however. I suggest the manufacturer cover more of the vial with silicone. Only a small section of the vial needs to be visible to determine the type of insulin and the amount left.

Cat / Dog Insulin Protector

We bought this after a terrible accident, we all know what I'm talking about... I dropped the brand new insulin on the ground. It was slippery and cold and I dropped it! Our cat needs insulin twice a day and I was devastated! I went to Amazon, where you can find anything, and this came up. I purchased it right away! I do recommend for cat insulin to cut the bubbled tip off, as it fits much better and it DOES NOT lower the protection at all. Outstanding protection, I would recommend this to anyone who uses insulin (human or pet). Best amazon purchase to date!

Save your insulin vials

Love this product. Wish I had these years ago. Best thing I could have bought.

It's a life saver when protecting the bottle

I love it. It protects the bottle when dropped. I was giving my dog her insulin. She take vetsulin. And when I put the bottle on the tablet fell over and rolled off the table and broke on the floor. Now its protected.

very easy to put on the vial

I love the colors so bright and cheery I can now have a sigh of relief for when an oopsie moment happens when handling a flying through the air vial of insulin cause all you can do is listen to that very expensive medicine hit the ground and break

Wish this had been around 10-15 years ago - at least 3 bottles of insulin would have been saved!

Saw this reviewed by Diabetes Mine recently and thought I'd splurge on what seems to be the best solution for someone on MDI like me. I have a Sugar Medical case that was designed for pen users, so I've always worried my Lantus vial would slip out when I opened it, especially while traveling (I put the Humalog vial in the elastic loop meant for test strips). Over the years I've shattered 3 priceless bottles of insulin this way, and always hoped I'd find a better case or some kind of vial shield like these. The silicone is flexible and seems thick enough to last, and is easy to clean with soap and water. As pictured, you are able to see how much insulin is left in the bottle and the top accommodates the vial cap easily for filling syringes. Just wish I'd had these years ago!

Great Product

Excellent product to protect the liquid gold.

Quality

This is a quality product. Seems like it will keep the insulin from shattering when the butter compartment is accidentally left open and the fridge is swing open.

A Must

These things are fantastic! Very happy we purchased these! I know, it seems that as a diabetic the last thing you need is one more supply.... I get it. I have two Type 1 diabetics at home. But these little guys are worth it!

Easy access.

Overall I like these. I could easily put them on and take them off. I had hope their was a top to close off.

These vial protectors are great!

I am a little clumsy, and every now and then I accidentally drop my insulin vial. So far I've been lucky and it hasn't broken, but I know that someday it will, and would waste my expensive insulin. So I purchased these. It's a set of two protectors, and that's just perfect -- I use one for short acting and one for long acting insulin. You can turn the vial so that the clear part of the vial shows in the cut out area, so you can see how full or empty your vial is. I love this product!

Keeps bottle safe when dropped!

Perfect safety measure!

Great idea

Work well on these little fragile bottles

Does what it is supposed to!

Excellent jacket for those fragile glass insulin vials. We have dropped and broken multiple vials over the years. This help them be easier to keep a hold of and offers fair protection if it does get dropped.

Must Have for Insulin Users

This insulin protector definitely works and gives me peace of mind that my bottle won't shatter if dropped. Vial safe has awesome customer service that responded to me almost immediately and solved my problem quickly and easily! Definitely recommend to anyone who uses insulin.
