DIRECTIONS FOR USE
- With clean hands, roll plug into a tight, crease-free cylinder.
- With opposite hand, reach over head and pull up and back on outer ear to straighten ear canal.
- Quickly insert earplug well into ear canal and hold in until it expands for a comfortable, secure fit.
- WARNING: Improper fitting will reduce effectiveness and could result in hearing loss or injury.
Discard after several uses or as soon as dirt or wax accumulates on earplugs.
Warnings & Precautions
Remove earplug slowly with twisting motion to gradually break the seal. Rapid removal may damage eardrum. Keep away from infants and small children. These earplugs are non-toxic, but may interfere with breathing if caught in windpipe, which could lead to serious injury or death.
What are the foam earplugs made of and do they contain latex?
The earplugs are made of polyurethane foam. The “latex” in our foam earplugs is not natural latex, it is a synthetic latex technically called an emulsion polymer. It has the same properties as latex (water based, adhesive, etc.) but does not have the enzyme problem associated with natural latex.
If, in the extremely rare instance you should experience any type of rash or skin irritation while using this product, please discontinue use immediately. Consult your doctor or go to your local medical emergency room if you believe you require immediate medical attention.
Can the earplugs be cleaned?
No. If these earplugs become soiled, they should be disposed of.
Besides reducing noise, can these earplugs be used to seal out water?
No. These earplugs were specifically designed to provide superior protection against noise. For water protection, we recommend that you try one of Mack’s® moldable silicone or pre-molded flanged earplug products.
Are there any application tips to help me get a proper seal with the earplugs?
Please re-read the directions on the package and check out our instructional video on our product detail page to ensure you are getting the best fit and performance. The earplugs should be inserted so that there is just enough of the earplugs sticking out of your ear canals that you can easily grasp them with your thumb and forefinger for removal. Be sure to insert the plug while pulling (with the opposite hand) up and back on the outer ear to straighten the ear canal. If you are still unsuccessful with a plug that has now absorbed some sweat from the ear canal, try another, unexposed plug. A totally dry plug will retain its compressed shape and rigidity slightly longer, making it easier to insert. A sign that the earplug is sealing your ears properly is that your voice will sound more internal and exaggerated. Following these directions and tips with help ensure a proper seal and noise reducing benefits as well as help keep the earplugs securely in your ears.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Your amazing Snore Blockers are the answer I have been looking for! My husband and I have had to spend the last few nights in a hotel during a home remodel and there has been literally no escape from his snoring. At home, I would just move several rooms away most nights to try to sleep. While using the Snore Blockers, last night was the first night in many that I didn’t have to wake him to stop his snoring. We both slept through the night for the first time in probably 20 years!! I can’t thank you enough for this wonderful and very economical solution.”

“My husband’s snoring has been described at times, to be like that of a lion roaring in the jungle, a jet coming in for landing and a freight train! He doesn’t snore all the time, but when he does, he let’s it buck! Well, recently, we were on a trip and the “games began”! We were staying with friends and I happened to have a set of Mack’s Snore Blockers Soft Foam Ear Plugs with me from an earlier business trip. These earplugs not only provided a restful night’s sleep, but they were so comfortable I hardly knew I was wearing them! lol!”

“A relationship saver for us! Needed to sleep in the same place, but the snores were a killer. Wouldn’t know what to do without the Mack’s® Snore Blockers! I take them everywhere!!”

“I’ve been using your products for about 5 years now and I absolutely love them. I have chronic migraines and your ear plugs are the only ones I buy!!!! You guys have the best quality products on the market for the most reasonable price, and I thank you for it. I use the Mack’s Snore Blockers Earplugs every time I have a migraine and they are a life saver!!”

“VERY comfortable and effective! My unit faces the yard and the only barriers are windows and a door with gaps! A bird starts singing very loudly at 4 AM and wakes me up every night! I used some earplugs that I had before, but they weren’t that effective and started to hurt my ear a little. Tried these from Mack’s & boy….they are so comfortable and soft!! They don’t expand fast (so you need to hold it in your ear for a minute or so while inserting to have the best effect) and they DO reduce the sound well. Go for it!”
– Neda Afshar – Chicago, IL
“I have used many different brands and varieties of ear plugs. My husband snores terribly! While ear plugs would help reduce the noise, most gave me ear aches, built up pressure in my head and were uncomfortable. Or they didn’t reduce enough sound to fall or stay asleep. Things were very discouraging and we started sleeping in separate rooms. Then I tried the Snore Blockers and found a product that works! I’ve been using this particular type for over a year now. Hoping for the day my husband doesn’t snore, but until then, I have a workable solution that I’m thankful for!
