Product Overview

The strong NRS Tow Tether, with built-in bungee, is used with the quick-release harnesses on rescue life jackets.

  • Tow Tether lengths:
    33″: Stretched length is 84 cm, unstretched is 48 cm
    53″: Stretched length is 135 cm, unstretched is 84 cm
    Add 15 cm to length for carabiner and metal O-ring
  • The Tow Tether, sometimes called a “cow tail,” enhances towing boats in rescue situations.
  • The stainless steel O-ring includes a hook patch of “hook and loop” material that facilitates centering of the O-ring on vests that have the loop material sewn on in the back.
  • The Tether also has a hook patch on the carabiner end. This mates with a loop piece available on some rescue PFDs, forming a quick-release holder for the carabiner.
  • The carabiner is a non-locking model, so stow it where it won’t get snagged on something accidentally.
