Product of the Week- Eliminate 'that sinking feeling' in your dinghy

by Sail-World Cruising on 21 Jul 2012
Safe T Drain - oops did we forget something...? .. .
There's nothing worse than that sinking feeling when you get into the dinghy. You'll never be caught forgetting to replace the drain plug again with this week's Product of the Week. The brand new Safe-T-Drain Plug automatically seals itself to prevent accidental flooding even if the plug cap is not in place. It uses an exclusive removable flotation ball cartridge that instantly floats up to seal the drain when the transom hits the water.

A dinghy on a davit is a perfect place for this product. It will allow water to drain out of the dinghy when hoisted and keep water from coming back in when lowered into the water....


Safe-T-Drain Plug is a 'plug & play' replacement for generic original equipment manufacturers' drain plugs, so it can be quickly installed in minutes.

The flotation ball cartridge can also be easily removed for cleaning of the stainless catch screen by unthreading the drain assembly using the head of the plug cap. No tools needed. Safe-T-Drain Plug comes in an oval or round style, and 3 different materials.

Part # Retail Price
906095 Black Plastic (oval) $12.89
906096 Black Plastic (round) $12.89
906097 Brass (round) $24.50
906098 Chrome Brass (round) $25.45

These prices are good value and all available online, but don't try to order by the web as the standard shipping prices are prohibitive- you are better to contact Bill Mosher at billm@forespar.com or +1 (414) 688-9979 if you can't make it to a marine store.

If your local marine store does not stock the product you can find it from the Australian distributor:
