Comments about SafeLink CAT 2 EPIRB, GPS Enabled:
The EPIRB can not easily be triggered by mistake but not quite childproof.
Wall/bulkhead mounting is unobtrusive and secure with a safety locking pin so the EPIRB will not fall out.
The lithium battery makes the unit more compact and lighter compared to the Kennad I had before.
EPIRB's tend to do the same thing but the user replaceable battery swung it for me.
The top of the EPIRB (sealing in the electronics) is clear plastic; I suspect the unit should not be exposed to direct sunlight.
EPIRB has a feature where it will be triggered if it is placed in salt water (two sensor terminals on the body of the unit) and consequently the The EPIRB must not be placed in a location where it could be subject to spray or salt laden condensate as this could result in the EPIRB being triggered in a false alarm. To prevent falst triggering it may be necessary to periodically clean the body of the EPIRB.
The web address for the UK registraion is not correct so it is necessary to do a google search.
Registration on line is very easy and can be amended just as easily if there are any changes.
