As the captain of your boat, it’s your job to make sure that you and your passengers are in good hands. This is why Autotether Lanyard is a must-have product for anyone who owns a boat. If you or one of your passengers falls overboard, the boat ignition immediately shuts off, and alarm will sound. Imagine taking your family out for a cruise and being able to relax and enjoy yourself knowing they’ll be safe.
Autotether is a wireless lanyard that connects right to the ignition switch. It will protect the boat operator and up to 3 passengers (including kids and pets). The captain and passengers wear small personal sensors which will transmit radio waves to the host/receiver that is connected to the ignition switch. If the captain goes overboard, the receiver will shut off the ignition within 1 ½ seconds, and alarm will sound to alert the other passengers. If a passenger falls overboard, the alarm will also sound.
Charlie Moore “the Mad Fisherman” of ESPN2’s “Beat Charlie Moore” and NESN’s “Charlie Moore Outdoors” agrees that Autotether is a product every boater needs. Check out his testimonial:
Have your child wear the Autotether sensor: if he or she goes into the water or strays over 100 feet from the receiver, the alarm will sound, letting you relax and have peace of mind!
