Smallest Door Chime

Miniature “Chime-ette” Door Chime

This is the smallest known true door chime that rings a true ding-dong melody on two xylophone like tone bars. It’s diminutive size allows it to be mounted with virtually the same footprint (wallprint?) as a doorbell or buzzer. The instructions on the back read:

Connect this Chime-ette in place of your doorbell. Operates on regular bell transformer. Mount on walls with bars in vertical position.
