My friend bought one at the same time. His keys with the key buoy on it dropped into the ocean right by his boat and it didn't deploy at all. A diverse retrieved them a few days later and found that it never deployed at all

        After loosing my prescription glasses that blew off my boat, I purchased this product to help avoid having to go through this experience again. The description of the product said it floated 2.2 oz. My new glasses with everything attached weights 1.9 oz. In theary it should work. If my glasses ever end up in the water, I'll add to this review.

              Comments about Davis Instruments Key Buoy:

              Dropped the key buoy on the boat deck which opened the case like a clam shell, so thought I'd use it as a tester to make sure it would actually work when needed. I closed it back up and tied a string to it with 8 keys attached... It takes a few seconds for the inflation to start but lifted the eight keys and about 6 feet of string no problem. Would have lifted more which was reassuring. Great idea, I bought a couple more now that I know they work so well.

              The 1st one of these I had fell apart so I tried to see if it would inflate. Guess what it, it didn't.
              My store manager (who is awesome) kindly gave me a replacement.
              Today came the real test when my keys fell in the lake. Guess what, it didn't float.
              Now don't get me wrong, I don't expect a miracle.
              I intentionally only kept three keys on the ring in the hopes that it would have enough floatation if the worst were to happen.
              This product is such a wonderful idea. It is compact and unobtrusive.
              Unfortunately a simple foam floatie thing would have saved my day.

                Just don't let this product get wet during washdowns, or in a rainstorm. It will deploy. Surprise!
                But it is a great idea.
