|3. A Sea Rescue.
This is a long, bright orange banner that floats out from your kayak. It is only useful to get the attention of a rescuer looking down at the water, from a cliff, large ship or aircraft, and only during the day; but it's duration of operation last up to the time of rescue, and can be reused.
GadgetBrothers have introduced instant grommets for polyethylene sheets, canvas and other materials, allowing you to put tie downs just where you want them, without needing to put holes in your tarps. These grommets are not only stronger than the conventional type, they are completely repositionable.
Optional Ball Bungies provide even easier tying off.
$2/each or 10 for $20 US. www.gadgetbrothers.com.

|Unsurpassed performance in a plastic check valve. Patented diaphragm design provides the ultimate normally-closed, zero reverse-flow valve. Available pipe sizes 1/2" 3/4" and 1". Body materials are Geon® PVC, Corzan® CPVC, Glass-filled polypropylene, and Kynar® PVDF. Seal materials are EPDM and FKM (a litharge-cured elastomer with properties similar to Viton®). |
• Self-sealing -- not dependent upon gravity, mounting position or reverse flow.
• Leak-free sealing protects against the hazards of reverse flow.
• Rapid closure helps to eliminate sudden back-flow water hammer.
• Union nuts simplify inspection/removal with minimal piping breakdown.
• Minimal Cracking Pressure: Valve begins to open for desired flow at approximately 1.0 to 1.5 PSI.
• Maximum working pressure is 150 psi inlet, 100 psi backpressure at 77 degrees F, except Glass-filled polypro which is rated 100 psi inlet.
• No metal parts internally or externally.
