HARNESSING SAFETY THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
THE 'SMART' KILL CORD THAT KNOWS WHEN YOU'RE WEARING IT AND ALARMS TO REMIND YOU TO CLIP ON IF YOU DON'T
LIFECORD is a newly designed and patented kill cord, providing the certainty and reliability of a tethered connection between a boat’s engine ignition kill switch and pilot, ensuring the vessel's engine stops should the pilot be inadvertently thrown from the helm. However, unlike the typical passive kill cords commonly seen, Lifecord is a 'smart' kill cord incorporating detection technology designed to trigger an audible and visual warning alarm should LIFECORD be connected to a boat's kill switch but not the pilot, similar to a seatbelt warning in a car.
LIFECORD’s uniquely designed key and clasp connector is comfortable to wear around the leg and can be operated easily even while wearing gloves. It also offers a secondary method of pilot connection using an ergonomically designed Lifejacket key which can be permanently fitted to lifejackets. Pilot change and reconnecting Lifecord couldn't be easier or safer.
LIFECORD ensures that should a pilot leave the helm when the boat's engine is ticking over in neutral, they are reminded to reconnect the cord when they return, also ensuring a pilot change results in the new pilot being reminded to connect. It alerts the skipper and other crew members alike, should the pilot not have connected the cord.
LIFECORD detects whether or not it's being worn. Should for any reason it become inadvertently looped back on itself with the clasp and key connected but without being worn round the pilot's leg, if it's connected to the vessel's kill switch it will alarm.
