The compact footprint of the ThrowRaft TD2401 allows the lifesaving device to be stored discreetly and conveniently. It is the only inflatable throwable flotation device that is Type IV Coast Guard approved. The ThrowRaft can be thrown inflated or in its packed position, and once it is submerged it will automatically inflate. Made in the U.S., it is nine times smaller than a ring buoy (when packed), and five times smaller than a square cushion. Inflated by a 24-gram CO2 cylinder bayonet, the ThrowRaft can be repacked and recharged using a standard PFD re-arming kit.
