The Rescue Snag plate allows for fast and efficient access to another throw rope in the water when conducting emergency river rescue. Swiftwater rescue requires immediate response and reliable equipment, training and technique. Efficiency is a necessity, and having the right equipment can make the difference when every second counts. The snag plate is stored in the bottom of your rescue bag when not in use and can be quickly slid out when needed. The teeth will snag a rope that is in the water and hold tight so it can be brought to shore. This is an essential item to add to your throw bag. Discontinued item.
