Contact Tow
The primary application is a very short quick “contact” towline from a deck line of the rescuer to the bow or deckline of the casualty boat, putting the bow adjacent to the cockpit area of the rescuer. 

A diagonal contact across the deck pulls the casualty boat into the side & also offers the quick release to be viewed on the front deck. To activate the quick release pull the cord or pull the yellow webbing tail to release the cam buckle. With a slight applied tension the yellow webbing will then slide through & disconnect the system.
