Other products featured by the International Design Exhibition can be seen on its web site www.re-f-use.com.

Sales of the NSTB-1002 NO-SHANK® toothbrush to correctional facilities have exceeded 1.5 million with no reports of a weapon being made from one. No other toothbrush manufacturer can make this claim. The United State Marine Corps uses this product exclusively for the detainees at Camp X-Ray, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. It is the world’s safest toothbrush. We have designed it for high security areas such as administrative segregation and suicide watch in correctional facilities. In addition, local facilities in many states use this product exclusively and one or more facilities in more than 50% of the Department of Corrections currently use it.

Securitas sells the reusable, one-size-fits-all fingertip toothbrush into many different markets under different trademarks. Under the trademark ULTRALIGHT-SPORTS ™, Securitas sells the toothbrush to the camping and backpacking market, via the Internet and retail outlets such as REI, a 54 store national chain. Securitas markets the toothbrush to the military market, the business travel market and the youth market under this trademark.
