Developed by air rescue professionals, the LSP Cinch Rescue Collar is a multi-use rescue device offering security and simplicity for the victim and versatility for the rescuer. This first-line rescue device allows victims to enter the harness from either side of the loop, with head and arms extended. Once the rescuer exerts tension to the rope, the victim’s weight releases the connector and allows the collar to cinch around his chest, preventing him from slipping out in the event he becomes unconscious. Designed for safe recovery of victims in swift water or blue water. Can be used for helicopter, landbase and watercraft rescues, as well as high-rise and cliff extrications, and confined-area rescues. May be stored and carried in the durable, lightweight carry case in ready-to-use position. Interior made of non-absorbent, closed-cell foam; exterior covering is a tough, stain-resistant, washable Cordura.
