Description

Show Description

Get boats and swimmers to shore with this tubular webbing bungy tow. 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's readily at hand. If you're the rescuer, you can clip into a boat or a swimmer. If you're 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 extracating you from a pinning or entrapment.

  • For use only with a quick-release belt.
  • Stretches to almost 1.2m (4ft.) to dampen out jerks and help maintain a more constant line tension.
  • Includes a wire gate paddle carabiner with a 22kN rating.
