They are one time use wristbands. Once they are on the only way to get them off is to cut them off or break the connecting piece, and doing either would mean he couldnt put it on himself. Unless they had a very small wrist and could just slip it off, but then he would have to have an equally small wrist in order to get it on himself.

I hear ghosts wreak havoc on battery life though.

I could tape the cut ends to the underside of my wrist.

and, at least my year, some of the wristbands' plastic connectors were loose enough to remove and put back on.

but I didn't tell any of you any of this.

This year's band features a pretty effective tamper resistant feature. It is a clear plastic cover over colored vinly with a chemical between the two layers. If the band is cut, it exposes the chemical to oxygen which causes the band to turn red. Once the one end of the connector is inserted into the other, seperation of the two introduces oxygen into the system as well, so breaking the connector has the same effect.

Ok, so thats not entirely true, but I probably had you going there for a while. On a serious note though, these are a higher quality than the bands we had your year and the connectors on these don't come loose. Before we ordered them we requested samples and wore them for a week trying to see what it would take to break them. I'm happy to say they are pretty durable.

Maybe I'll just get a marker and color my skin.

ooh, or say I'm allergic and they have to let me in under the Americans with Disabilities Act. that'll probably work.
