    Default Strobe lights for RIT bag

    Looking into replacing the strobe lights on the search ropes in our bags. The ones we use suck. The clips break and we end up using zip ties, and those usually fall off. It's actually kinda sad. The ones we were using were made for the Coast guard that were designed to go on their life vests.

    Appreciate any ideas anyone has. Thanks in advance.

    Default question

    Mass Guy, I am not sure as to the answer you have but I would like to ask a question . Are the lights just on the Bag or are they being placed at distance intervals ie 25 ft 50 ft marks ? I like the idea never saw it before and may think about implementing same .

    Pelican makes a very small and simple flashing light that works great in all conditions. They are oly about $10 too. Plus, they fall under the regular Pelican no BS warranty.

    Mass Guy...I took a few pics of our strobes and am having difficulty getting them down to size where they look good. PM me your e-mail if you want me to send them to you.

    no1...We have several very large warehouses(200x2000ft) in my area. We would leave one in a doorway when going into a different area. Also, if you fine a victom and have to leave before complete removal because of depleted air, fire conditions, or anything else, just fasten a strobe to them before you leave and the next team can find them easier. Even if you don't have a building that large I'm sure you have a supermarket, school, or church that are large area.

    I had one of the lights a few years ago-lasted about 10 minutes. For $10, wasn't worth the shipping to send back, or buying another one.
