Outboard Kill Switch Strap

Home --fyi stuff -- s/v Stella Blue home

July 2005--

When alone in the inflatable, I like to have that little kill strap attached to my person, to avoid an embarrassing
(and dangerous) situation.

So I whipped this up while watching TV, to make it a little easier to handle. It's just a little piece of bungee cord,
formed into a loop with a little hog crimp.

I covered the clamp with a little Ancor heat shrink. Set the heat gun on 500W to avoid melting the bungee cord cover!

It fits around the wrist, but I like to wear it on my ankle.
It's a pain, but those inflatables can get squirrelly when you're running flat out in a bit of chop, and it's better to be safe than sorry!
