The Autotether Wireless Lanyard System is a unique man overboard safety product that is unlike traditional lanyards that require the operator to be tethered to the boat. The patented Autotether is an easy-to-install, unobtrusive wireless unit and no wiring or tools are required. The system clips to the boat ignition switch and is self-powered with AAA batteries.

A small personal sensor sends radio waves to a receiver connected to a boat's engine and Autotether shuts off the engine if the boat operator falls into the water. It also sets off an alarm if passengers on the boat (including children and pets) wearing Autotether sensors fall into the water. The passenger sensors can also shut off the boat's engine when the red alert button is pushed in the event of a runaway boat.

Some insurance companies offer a discount on boat insurance for boats equipped with an Autotether Wireless Lanyard System.

The Autotether Wireless Lanyard System is now available in West Marine stores across the US, online at westmarine.com and in the West Marine catalog. For more information about the Autotether Wireless Lanyard System, visit www.autotether.com or call 860-526-1700. For West Marine store locations, visit www.westmarine.com.
