Wednesday, May 02, 2012

CHESTER, CT – Unlike traditional lanyards that come standard with boats and require the operator to be tethered to the boat, the patented Autotether kill switch is an easy-to-install, unobtrusive wireless unit. No wiring or tools are required—the system clips to the boat ignition switch and is self-powered with AAA batteries.

It also sets off an alarm in the event that passengers (or pets) wearing the Autotether sensors on the boat fall into the water.
