You know what?
When I started writing this article, I had just come through a dark time that caused me to suffer from mild depression and neurological debilitation until I got a ceiling vibrator. Also, others may call it ceiling thumper, ceiling vibration machine, or ceiling shaker.
Which can not be found on Amazon when you search “ceiling vibrator amazon”, “ceiling thumper amazon”, and “gadget that creates vibrations on the ceiling”.
Now, I have recovered and sitting in the air conditioning apartment (condo), eating fruit, looking out at the blue sky and white clouds through the window, then writing this article slowly in my quiet & peaceful apartment.
It’s so quiet that I can only hear the sound of my keyboard tapping, so quiet that I can hear the sewing needles fall to the floor.
My Nightmare From The Loud Upstairs Neighbor
I am a legal professional. A new tenant moved into my apartment building about three months ago, living upstairs from me. There were 6 of them, two elderly, two adults, and two children.
Damn! How they managed to cram so many people in!
Since then, the nightmare began.
Starting at 5 a.m., Grandpa is constantly fiddling with the toolbox, and I can clearly hear the sound of tools such as screwdrivers\wrenches\nuts or parts falling to the floor and bouncing back up. He would even sometimes bang on my ceiling with them.
6 a.m., mom and dad get up for work, and the ceiling is filled with the sound of high heels and leather shoes walking back and forth, occasionally accompanied by the sound of pushing and pulling tables and stools… imagine the sound of stool legs rubbing on the floor, it makes me crazy!
7 a.m. Children are getting up, starting to run, stomping hard on the floor with their bare feet. Thump! Thump! Thump!
Want to hear some? Click it.
I suffered a lot during this time, even waking up at 4 a.m. every day, waiting for the storm to start at 5 o’clock.
And the weekends will be even more horrible, with all the noises playing randomly off and on 24/7 from now on.
I can’t rest at home, and I even go to the office during the weekend to get peace.
God! They drive me crazy!
You may say, hey buddy, you can’t just put up with it, why don’t you communicate and solve it?
Ways To Try Before Buying A Ceiling Vibrator (Ceiling Thumper)
In fact, I tried many methods before purchasing and using the ceiling vibrator.
Complaining To The Property
The property staff went up to negotiate to no avail, the upstairs neighbor promised to reduce the noise, but after the negotiation was completed, they did the same as before. They didn’t act unreasonably, they promised very well every time, but they wouldn’t do anything about it.
Believe me, it will only make you feel worse and will not do any good in terms of noise mitigation.
Actually, I have not tried to fight because it is not good to hurt the other person or be hurt, both physically and mentally traumatized.
Call The Police
I once went to the police station to consult the police. The response is, in this case, the police will not easily use the fine, at most give a warning to the upstairs neighbor, and also need you to have solid evidence to keep.
But what’s the point of a warning? If the police piss them off, they usually stomp on the floor a few more times and jump a few more times, and I can’t do anything about it.
To File A Lawsuit In Court
This is a neighboring rights dispute, so I have to do at least the following things:
- Find the identity of the upstairs.
- Find evidence to prove that the sound from upstairs affects my rest and they are responsible.
- Take the time to write a lawsuit, and take the time to go to court.
Whether I succeed is another story, my time cost is too high.
Buying A Ceiling Vibrator (Ceiling Thumper)
When I was endlessly confused, a friend gave me an excellent suggestion: why not buy some ceiling noise maker or gadgets to annoy the upstairs neighbor? Such as a ceiling vibrator.
Wow, until then, I didn’t know there was a gadget so amazing in the world. It can take revenge not only on noisy upstairs neighbors, but also on noisy downstairs neighbors.
I then thought about it and read up on the law and found that it does work.
First of all, the ceiling vibrator effect upstairs, it is true that I infringement, but at best, it is only infringement, but also the neighboring rights dispute, the police can not solve, big deal, you go to court to sue me ah!
Secondly, the impact of the ceiling vibrator to the other party and the other party to me is caused by the impact of the equivalent. Even if the other party sue me, I can also sue the other party. We are even. I would like you to sue me!
Moreover, I am not to keep the vibration on. I turn on it when upstairs neighbors disturb me.
In addition, when upstairs neighbors sleep, and I did not, then briefly turn it on. The purpose is to wake upstairs neighbors up. The feeling of constantly being woken up, so that upstairs neighbors are more empathetic.
In addition, the ceiling vibrator will not bring harm to the building, it will not demolish your ceiling. As long as I don’t say, who dares to break into my house to see if I have a ceiling vibrator? I will directly prosecute you for trespassing, believe it or not?
I’m sure there are many similar problems to mine in this big city.
If it is not really no way, who wants to add a ceiling vibrator to their homes? It is only to ask the other party not to affect us when more bargaining chips. If the upstairs can be quiet, I believe that most people will not consider this ceiling vibrator.
This also highlights the difficulty of defending rights in disputes over neighboring rights, a legal practitioner needs to buy a ceiling vibrator.
Seeing this, some may say, you are being vindictive, we shouldn’t be doing this, we should be seeking a more moderate approach like negotiating.
But, I’ve tried them all and they don’t work.
Moreover, they don’t have a noisy upstairs neighbor who cannot relate to our pain.
Now, I need revenge against noisy upstairs neighbors. JUST REVENGE!
- I privately thought that buying a ceiling vibrator was much more kind and law-abiding than taking a knife to the upstairs’ door.
- I spent every minute in the fantasy of hacking the upstairs tenants to death.
- I even fantasized about ripping off the heads of the children upstairs.
- Every time I calm down, I feel damn sick. I’m terrified of when the string of my sanity will fall apart.
- I really feel inexplicable pressure rushing to the brain when the upstairs neighbor annoys me.
- When there is no noise upstairs, I suspect they hold something terrible.
I put the ceiling vibrator in my shopping cart and use it as my safety valve. When I really lose my mind, I hope to spend some money on something that will solve or alleviate the current difficult situation, rather than taking a knife to break the law.
Why are the good people always oppressed, while the evil people can do whatever they want?
This reminds me of the competition and confrontation between countries. Don’t they also engage in an arms race, act out each other first, and then solve the problem through negotiations? If you don’t have the means to reciprocate with the other side, you are not even qualified to sit at the negotiating table.
Life Returns To Peace With The Ceiling Vibrator (Ceiling Thumper)
But the good thing is, those are gone, and things have been resolved, just on the seven days after I turned on the ceiling vibrator.
After I receive the ceiling vibrator, I turn it on two times:
One is when there is any more noise from upstairs that upsets me.
The second is in the early morning. Since I sleep late, I will turn on the ceiling vibrator briefly at 1 am, 2 am, and 3 am, maybe for 1-2 minutes each time, to wake up my upstairs neighbors and make them experience the same pain as me.
This went on for seven days, just seven days.
On someday evening, their hostess took the initiative to knock on my door and engage in a friendly negotiation with me.
I gave him the sounds that I had recorded for a long time through recordings of stomping feet and other sounds that interfered with my normal life.
They said they would be strict with the children in the future and informed the elderly to be careful not to drop things on the floor, and that they would like me to stop banging and shaking my ceiling in the middle of the night.
After another day, I saw that they bought a lot of carpets…
After that, I was no longer bothered by any sounds from the upstairs neighbor, it was as if they had moved away. Peace and quiet came back into my life.
The above is my all story.
The Start Of This Site
After I shared it with a friend of mine in the computer industry, we built this website together and got the exclusive agent of the factory that invented the ceiling vibrator in China. I hope it can help people worldwide who once had the same encounter as me to get rid of their dark time.
Please feel free to shop around if you also need a ceiling vibrator.
Whether you have already purchased it or not, or whether you are willing to buy it or not, if you are becoming depressed and worn because of upstairs noise, I am willing to answer your questions about it.
