Line Thrower

The line thrower is used for casting a pilot line for cables and ropes in rescue operations. It can be used between ships, from shore to ship or ship to shore, and for rescuing personnel. It is a true “must have” emergency product for everyone to stay safe at sea.

The line thrower is a robust device consisting of a waterproof plastic container with integral handle and trigger mechanism, a solid-fuel rocket and 300 meters of line. To activate it, remove a safety pin, hold the device steady and pull the trigger.

This line thrower is approved globally and meets the latest SOLAS 74/96 regulations.
