Product of the Week- Eliminate 'that sinking feeling' in your dinghy
by Sail-World Cruising on 21 Jul 2012
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.
Safe T Drain - oops did we forget something...? .. .
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.
