Cradles are an important part of liferaft safety. They make it easyto mount your liferaft on deck, where it's easily accessible in anemergency. All of our cradles accept hydrostatic releases, which wehighly recommend for added safety. A hydrostatic release deploys theraft and inflates it automatically when the release comes in contactwith the water. All you and your crew have to do is jump or climb intothe raft.

  • Cradles are constructed of 1" (25mm) tube diameter 316 stainless steel
  • They are designed to be mounted horizontally on deck
  • Each cradle includes two adjustable straps
  • The cradles can be padlocked for security (remember to unlock prior to departure)
