Product Overview

Automatic release when the EPIRB is submerged.

Patented rod system allows release of the beacon from a Category I bracket when submerged in water between 4.9 and 13.1 feet (1.5 - 4 meters).  Designed to work with Sea Shelter™, Sea Shelter™2 and Sea Shelter™3 brackets 

A patented rod system does not rely on a battery, blade or pyrotechnic device to release the beacon. This advantage allows for a quick, seamless and reliable release in an emergency. 

Note that this is a date-stamped product and must be replaced every two years from the date of installation or four years from the date of manufacture.
