The Line Buddy

[Category : - Swimming]
[Viewed 2401 times]

A divers surface marker buoy device, comprises a surface marker buoy attached to a line, the length of which is controlled by an automatic retractor reel. This allows automatic extension and retraction of the line to maintain the surface marker buoy at the surface of a body of water, while the diver ascends or descends within the body of water below. The device may hold up to 100 metres of line and it maybe provided with a lock to fix the length of the line during decompression stops, made by the diver. The retractor reel may have a durable, lightweight plastic outer casing which may be provided with a clear plastic window to indicate how much of the line has been deployed at any given point. The retractor reel may use a spring tension mechanism to retract the line. The device may be provided with a compass.

Hands free SMB reel

Full Description:
The Line Buddy would be fabricated primarily from durable but lightweight plastic and would consist of a housing that would hold a safety line in excess of 35 meters or more. The line is mounted on a spring tension mechanism that would allow the line to be extended and retracted in a manner similar to a conventional dogs lead. As the diver moves away from the safety float, the line would automatically extend. As the diver moves back towards the safety float the line would retract. The device would also be equipped with a locking mechanism that would halt the extension or retraction of the line. For example the movement of the line might be halted during a decompression stop.

With this configuration, the Line Buddy would serve as a functional safety device for use by scuba divers, and also could be used by the emergency services such as the fire brigade, the Line Buddy could be secured to an exit of a smoke filled building or compartment, and the fire fighter would then enter or exit with safety.

Problem this idea/invention addresses:
The LineBuddy is used for deploying and retrieving the line from a safety float to a scuba diver in a safe and hands free efficient manner.
