Mount the Pig Tail by its D-ring onto the quick-release belt on the back of a “rescue” PFD. The carabiner is clipped to the front of the PFD, where it is readily at hand. If you are the rescuer, you can clip into a boat or a swimmer.
If you are the victim, you can clip the Pig Tail into the line of a throwbag that’s been heaved to you. This provides your benefactors with a line attached to the back of your PFD, and greatly increases the options they have for extricating you from a pinning or entrapment.
- For use only with a quick-release belt.
- Stretches to over a meter to dampen out jerks and help maintain a more constant line tension.
