Restube trigger protector
The Restube Trigger Protector is to protect the trigger mechanism while you distance swim with the RESTUBE self inflated by blowing it up. Simply remove the cartridge and screw it in.
Some swim races are mandating the use of inflated buoys, also called 'drag buoys'. The RESTUBE can be just that, self inflated by blowing it up in about 5 breaths. Many swimmers also use the inflated buoy during training, as this will provide better visibility for other people on the water like paddlers, boats and lifeguards and will save you the weight of the CO2cartridge.
This is not mandatory but recommended if this is a normal part of your training.
How can Restube help me?
The most effective way to immediately contain critical situations in the water is to have additional buoyancy right next to you. Restube is so small that you can always have it with you and it doesn’t affect your mobility in the water. But if you want buoyancy, all you need to do is pull the trigger. You can also pass the buoy on to someone else or wave it to draw attention to yourself.
Why do I need Restube?
Restube is so small and robust that you can always carry it with you. With a pull on the trigger you have a lift for yourself or others in seconds! Restube is not a substitute for a life jacket or armbands – because it is intended for all those areas of use on the water where it was previously not possible to carry safety with you, because there was nothing that was so compact and light before inflating. Restube is similar to a Swiss Army knife: you are prepared for a wide variety of situations.
How does Restube work?
When you need a boost for yourself or others, pull the trigger. The sealed CO2 cartridge is pierced and fills the buoy in seconds. If you lean over the Restube buoy, it will lift your head out of the water. You can also wave the buoy to attract attention.
Can I use Restube more than once?
Yes, by replacing the CO2 cartridge, Restube is immediately ready for use again.
