I bought a KSafe in November 2015. The KSafe can be found on their mysteriously enormous website (http://www.thekitchensafe.com/). Maybe it was designed with senior citizens in mind?
I first heard about the KitchenSafe online of course, as I find most of my anti-internet tools and information. I found it while perusing r/NoSurf from my local laundromat. Because if I’m not within the legal parameters of my home, Lord knows I’ll be giddily using the internet guilt-free.
The Ksafe comes in two sizes: regular, and XL. Their website lists the dimensions of both sizes. Their regular Ksafe is 5.5″ wide by 5.5″ tall. Their XL is 5.5″ by 10.5″ tall. Like I said, I found the KSafe website while at the laundromat, and I’m not in the habit of bringing rulers or tape measures with me to the laundromat. By comparing the size of my smartphone in my hand to the size of my BabyDick™*, I guesstimated that my phone would fit in the regular Ksafe. Without hesitation, I boldly ordered the regular-sized Ksafe that minute, gambling that my phone may not even fit inside. It was a ballsy move, but hey, I like to live dangerously.
When the green lid, clear body Ksafe arrived at my domicile just 3 days later, it was obviously way larger than my phone and made me feel retarded. But hey, if you’re not willing to feel retarded, you’re not willing to feel alive.
Compared to the apps that sometimes work on most devices depending on the updates, the KSafe is very solid and reliable. I would go as far as to say it is the AK-47 of anti-internet tools. Throw your device in the confines of Guantanamo K, spin the fun kid-friendly dial to the term of its imprisonment, and enjoy the sense of deep peace and quiet satisfaction of Anti-Internet living.
The only issue I think NoSurfers would run into with the KSafe is that it isn’t automatic. You have to participate to get the benefits. There are no scheduling features, there are no blockers or bans. It’s just a plastic box with a timer. So if you know that at certain times of the day you are more prone to straying off the narrow NoSurf or NoFap path, I would recommend that you combine this anti-internet tool with an app that has a scheduling function. That way, you will always have at least one layer of protection.
Until next time,
