Don't Fall for Cheap Replicas and Knockoffs!
How to Identify an Authentic Grover Products Co. Air Horn and Avoid Knockoffs:
Grover Products Co. has been a leading American manufacturer of air horns for over 80 years and our products are known for their high quality and durability, which is why they are so popular among emergency equipment manufacturers, truck drivers, boat owners, and others who need a loud and reliable air horn. Unfortunately, this popularity has also led to an increase in knockoff and fake air horns that may look similar to the real thing but don't have the same level of performance or longevity. Here's how to identify an authentic Grover Products Co. air horn and avoid getting ripped off by a fake.
Check the Branding and Labeling
One of the easiest ways to spot a fake air horn is to look for the Grover Products Co. branding and labeling. The authentic air horns will have the Grover logo, as well as the product name, model number, and other relevant information. The labeling will be clear, legible, and of good quality. On the other hand, fake air horns may have blurred or misaligned labels or may be missing the Grover logo altogether.
If you see branding that is similar to Grover Products branding and product names like "SPUTTERING horn" or "Chrome Emergency Stutter Horn" they are definitely knockoffs of authentic Grover Products Co. Stuttertone air horns.

Look for the Grover Products Co. Trademark
Another important indicator of an authentic Grover air horn is the trademark. Grover Products Co. is a registered trademark and is protected by law. This means that any authentic air horn will have the Grover trademark on the label, packaging, or the product itself. If you don't see the trademark, it's likely that you're dealing with a fake product.
Examine the Quality and Construction
Grover air horns are known for being built in the USA and for their high-quality construction and materials. The authentic air horns will be made of high-quality metal, have a solid and sturdy feel, and will not have any defects or damage. The chrome and paint finish will be smooth and even, with no scratches or dents. Fake air horns may be made of inferior materials or may have visible defects in the construction or finish. Especially horns made overseas. Our horns are built to last 30 years or more, other horns are built to fail so you keep coming back for more when they break down.
Check the Price and Retailer
Finally, be wary of air horns that are priced significantly lower than the average market price or sold by unknown retailers. Grover Products Co. has a network of authorized dealers and retailers who sell their products at a fair price. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Similarly, if you're not buying from a trusted retailer, you may be at risk of buying a fake product.
Identifying an authentic Grover Products Co. air horn requires a careful examination of the branding, labeling, trademark, quality, and price. By following these tips, you can avoid the disappointment and safety risks that come with buying a fake, low quality air horn!
