Rating: Very easy to use
Reviewer: Larry B.
I took this product to Cozumel for drift diving. Since it was common to come up in an area with other boats, all you had to do was to pull out the safety sausage and blow it up manually while you waited for your own boat. Deflating it and rolling it back up was also easy and it fits easily back into the small carrying bag which hooks inconspicuously to your BC. For the price, this product gets a "5".

Rating: Nice and small
Reviewer: George S.
This safety sausage rolls up compactly to fit in a BC pocket. Its much smaller than the impression I got from the picture, which is good.

Rating: Safety Sausage Issues
Reviewer: Nancy Frazee  -  View all my reviews
I recently purchased the safety sausage with the intention to deploy under the surface to signal boats that I was coming up rather than carrying my dive flag on this particular lake I dive. I find that the mouthpiece is difficult to pull out with gloves on. Also, the carrying bag is a bit too small for my liking in regards to "putting it all back together again". It may be more appropriate to deploy in a warm water environment at the surface with no gloves.

    What is this products collapsed size?

    hi! how does one inflate this under water? looks like pull apart the bottom flaps - the octo mouth & inflate .... correct?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This is not designed to inflate underwater but on the surface as a signal tube. The valve on the end of the hose unscrews and you blow into it then screw back down to close it.

  • Qinxu:

    Inflatable with mouthpiece But I dont know how to inflatable.What the mouthpiece mean?

    The end of the small tube is a spring loaded valve that as you push it in you can blow air into the tube then it springs back to close.
