How the Mustang Rescue Stick Works


Incredibly easy to use, the Rescue Stick provides rapid flotation assistance to a person at risk of drowning. Simply remove the baton shaped Rescue Stick from its waterproof bag and throw near the person. Once contact is made with the water it inflates in seconds to a large horseshoe shape keeping them afloat and their head above water until help arrives.

Measuring only 14" in length and weighing less than 1 lb., the Rescue Stick is the most versatile rescue flotation device available. Easily stowed in a boat, vehicle, backpack or by the pool - it will be accessible when and where you need it. Simple to repack and reuse - insert a new bobbin and screw in the replacement handle containing the CO2 cylinder (Re-Arm Kit MA7206).

Anyone who can throw a stick can throw the Rescue Stick to someone in distress in the water. On average the Rescue Stick can be thrown between 100 and 150 feet - almost triple the distance of a typical rope bag or life ring. The inflated horseshoe will float with the person in the water.

Mustang Survival Rescue Stick Applications

The Rescue Stick is an invaluable tool for emergency response and rescue professionals arriving first on scene to provide rapid flotation. During a water rescue it can be thrown to the victim to keep them afloat. Lifeguards can easily throw the Rescue Stick to someone in trouble in the water to keep their head above water until rescued. Recreational boaters can throw the Rescue Stick to a man overboard while maneuvering to get them out of the water.

Developed with input from Search and Rescue professionals, lifeguards, firefighters and recreational boaters the Rescue Stick provides 35 lbs of buoyancy - much more than the 7 lbs required to keep a conscious person afloat. It is easy to repack and re-arm by screwing on a replacement handle that contains the new CO2 cylinder.

In an emergency, time, distance and the ability to provide flotation to someone rapidly is critical. In many situations the Rescue Stick is an effective rescue tool.
