The creation of the world-famous Fox Whistles has an exciting story. Although the periodic failure of little plastic whistles was unlikely to cripple pro basketball, it did impair the appropriate enforcement of the rules, not to mention giving officials such as Foxcroft discomfort regularly. For example, during the 1980 Summer Olympics in Montreal, a crowd of 18,000 people (a record for basketball attendance in Canada at the time) turned on Foxcroft when a Yugoslavian player elbowed a member of the US squad and got away without punishment. Yet, despite Foxcroft's best efforts, his whistle remained silent.
He concluded that it was his responsibility to do something about the problem. Foxcroft presented his wish list to a plastics molding firm in Stoney Creek, Ontario, to get them to make him a better whistle. They promised to produce the components for such a whistle if Foxcroft could provide them with a final product drawing. The Oakville, Ontario-based design consultant Chuck Shepherd agreed to embark on the project after being referred by them.
Although it was louder and more dependable than the pea-style whistle, Chuck's initial prototype proved cumbersome and difficult to use. Shepherd and Foxcroft 14 prototypes finally created the Fox 40 pealess whistle. Although it resembles its predecessor in appearance, sound, and feel, the Fox 40 whistle operates on a fundamentally different premise. When the cork pea in the whistle's inside moves, it covers and uncovers the hole through which air is expelled, causing the whistle to sound sharp and piercing. A quick back-and-forth of sound and stillness follows, giving rise to the well-known whistle vibrato until the little pea becomes caught.
The Fox 40 Pealess Whistle is similar to a harmonically-tuned instrument in that it simultaneously emits three slightly distinct frequencies. However, the various frequencies are overlaid out of phase; as a result, they reinforce and cancel each other out alternatively. Because there are no moving components, the vibration is loud and clear. Instead of glued, the whistle is made using an injection-molded plastic ultrasonically welded together.
Since its debut at the 1987 Pan American Games in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Fox 40 Pealess Whistle has been a huge hit. Besides referees, water safety personnel, search and rescue teams, private security personnel, animal trainers, and other sports fans use Fox 40 whistles, distributed in over 140 countries. They are also used in the outdoor and luxury incentive industries. Indeed, the Fox 40 Pealess Whistle has been authorized and recommended for use by the Coast Guards of all countries.
Since Fox 40's inception, the company's product range has increased tremendously! It currently contains whistles, whistle attachments, Fox 40 gear, Pro Coaching boards, Mouthguards, and Marine & Outdoor items. It's no secret that Fox 40 is always looking for innovative ways to improve its manufacturing processes and introduce new goods.
