Horizontal and vertical vents and the words "Gas Sniffer" appear on the front of the detector next to an on/off switch and near two small red and green lights. The model number, company name and address are located on a sticker on the back of the detector.

The detectors were sold in the eastern United States from June 1986 to August 1995 through various coal stove and fireplace accessory stores as accessories with coal stoves. The detectors were also sold separately for up to $74.95. The detectors, packaged in a rectangular, red and white cardboard box labeled in part, " Gas Sniffer ... Safety First ... FOR: Coal Stove ... Central Heating ... Portable Heaters...," were sold with a black plastic cord and black adaptor plug.
