A key safe (10) includes a main container (14) defining an access port (20), an antechamber (16) and a primary hook (22) located within the antechamber (16). The antechamber (16) is movable between a first position in which a user is permitted access thereto and to the primary hook (22) from outside the main container (14) via the access port (20), and a second position in which the user is not permitted access to either the antechamber (16) or the primary hook (22) from outside the main container (14). The key safe (10) further includes a plurality of secondary hooks (26) located within the main container (14), which secondary hooks (26) are not directly accessible to a user. In use, transport means (18) transport keys between the primary hook (22) and a secondary hook (26) when the antechamber (16) is in the second position.

An accessory (10) for a syringe (12) includes: a body (14) sized and shaped in use to locate over finger flanges (22) on a syringe; and means, in use, to secure the body to the finger flanges (22). The body defines a bore extending there through. A plunger rod (16) including a first array of notches and/or protuberances (44) along at least a portion of its length is received within the bore defined by the body. Located within the bore defined by the body is an insert (18) that defines a bore through which the plunger rod, in use, extends. The insert (18) also includes a first finger (48) extending into the bore defined by the insert for, in use, engaging the first array of notches and/or protuberances (44) on the plunger rod (16).

A syringe includes a monolithic barrel (12) being divided into two bore portions, a first bore portion (22) extending from the needle adapter partially towards the second axial end and a second bore portion (24) extending from the first bore portion to the second axial end, wherein the first bore portion is circular in cross section and the second bore portion has a cross sectional shape that at least partially extends beyond the radius of the first bore portion. The syringe includes a plunger (14) sized to fit within and move along the longitudinal axis of the first bore portion. A plunger rod (16) extends along the longitudinal axis of the monolithic barrel, the plunger rod including a first array of notches and/or protuberances (30) along at least a portion of its length. The syringe includes an insert (18) sized to fit wholly within the second bore portion, the insert defining a bore through which the plunger rod extends and including a first finger (36) extending into the bore defined by the insert for, in use, engaging the first array of notches and/or protuberances on the plunger rod.
