Flip Line

The Solgear® Flip Line is unique. It's not just an upside down stuff bag with rope in it ready to fall out and float loosely. Flip lines are designed to be in place on your raft and available in the event of a flip. Girth Hitch the small loop of webbing onto your raft's frame or connect it directly to the d-ring of your paddle raft. Then, clip the flip bag onto the loop so that the carabineer (included) will open and allow the bag to slide off the carabineer, without removing the carabineer from the raft. This flip bag includes a screwlock keylock carabineer so there is no "tooth" to hook as you slide the flip bag off the carabineer. Once the flip bag has been removed, pull out the webbing to use in levering your raft back over. There is a piece of clear vinyl tubing on the handle that is used to keep the webbing tucked into the bag. The user may choose to relocate this handle to create a preferred length of flip line, as not all rafts are the same size. The 9/16" tubular webbing (12' included) is stronger than most conventional flip bag ropes and should last longer. This webbing is then also available for use in pin situations. Most rafts will require at least 2 bags used by 2 or more people and some boaters prefer to have a bag at each frame corner (4 total) for quick use in overturning a raft in either direction. THIS BAG WILL NOT PREVENT A RAFT FLIP AND WILL ONLY WORK AS WELL AS THE OPERATOR. Practice is key and training in a formal Swiftwater, Whitewater, or River Rescue class is advised. Purchase of this device is subject to the Solgear Terms and Conditions.
