As seen on BBC2's "Dragons Den" the Multi Award Winning WaterBuoy is the Worlds 1st and strongest flotation device which is visible at night. It is the "must have accessory" for anyone who is on or near the water!

* Able to lift up to 1kg in weight
* Reacts in seconds to contact with water
* Keeps on floating for up to 24 hours
* Powerful built in flashing high intensity LED light is visible at night and up to 250 meters
* Weighs a mere 32 grams and is very compact at just 7cm in length

Play it Extra Safe: Attach your WaterBuoy to your Keys, camera equipment or case, binoculars, mobile phone, GPS unit, PDA, radio receivers, fishing tackle equipment and also any valuable or essential tools etc. Remember WaterBuoy can lift up to 1kg in weight. If your case or equipment is heavier than 1kg then why not attach another or as many as may be needed !!

A great accessory or gift idea for anyone who uses any form of boat or watercraft including canoes and kayaks etc. Ideal for fishing too !

HOT from me x

IF I bought 93 of these and strapped them to myself I too would float to the surface if drowning ;-) HOT :thumbsup:

Great find!

:w00t:

if you bought 9300 maybe you could build a raft:thumbsup:

great if you are planning a cruise - canoeing - sea fishing etc

> Reacts in seconds to contact with water
So what happens if you accidentally drop it in a puddle, or it gets rained on (frankly: much, much more likely than dropping it into anything deep enough that it's flotation properties are required)?

Great find!

Have some heat!

hahahaha! hey, if youre a big boy you'd float anyway ;-)

Saw it on the Den and looked good. Might look a bit stupid hanging off my sunglasses though.

Do these work in the bath?

Personally, I have one of these tied onto my keys

If you dropped your phone or sat nav in the water it would float but doubt it would be much use after!

good find for fishermen or anyone boating etc.

If you dropped them in the toilet with this on would it inflate and get stuck?!

saw this on the dragons den a few months ago

Can't wait for the next season of DD to start... love that show.

Heat added, although I don't have a need for it!

I posted this months ago, same price, same shop :thumbsup: Still worth a post good Idea I thought, I also saw this on Dragon's Den. :gift:

I didnt see this on dragons den.

Thought I might create a balanced thread. :thumbsup:

Careful - If you wet your pants with one of these in your pocket you'll be in all kinds of trouble ^^

Nice find - A handy little key fob for those working on/near water.

Excellent for when I am out on the yacht. Voted hot.

(genuinely a hot idea for those who actually need it. part of me wants to drop it in someone else's loo and see if can shatter the bowl!)

Has anyone used one of these?

I live on a Dutch barge and we've had similar ]Davis key-buoys for a couple years now. They sound like a great idea, but the mechanism that opens the shell is really sensitive to moisture, so both of us have had the shells open up in our pockets after being caught in the rain (note that the inflating mechanism requires a LOT of water so it's not like we get a huge inflatable "how's your father" in our pockets in a rainstorm!).

I'm just wondering if these are any more robust, as they're about the same price as the Davis ones, and include an LED...

Very Funny!!!

if you have a mad dog (and quite alot of people do) they will normally jump in the water after what ever you drop, granted don't think they are gonna deep sea dive your keys back but being honest you shouldn't be hanging your car keys over the side of a boat anyway :-D

Yes! As seen on the dragon's den. Thought Paphitis was pretty mean squeezing that display model to destruction. I thought it looked a pretty good investment, cough I mean product! :-D

im gonna hook up one of these to my keys

That one you linked to looks inadequate: Strong enough for items weighing up to 2.8 ounces (80 grams) such as keys, small tools, deck plate keys. Suitable for single use only, so keep a spare on hand! It's £4.71 PLUS postage ??. Most old sea dogs use a cork ball ;-) not this new fangled gagdet

This will lift a kilo, very handy if your 'package' falls overboard whilst the coastguard inspect :whistling:

We didn't pay nearly that much, I think you'll be relieved to hear :thumbsup:

All well and good until it starts floating away on the tide and you can't get to the emergency net in time! The important feature in the Davis ones is that they shoot up a long, inflated stick so you can grab it from the side of the boat. Though as said above, the mechanism is not ideal!

It seems strange to rate its performance using kilograms it can lift because that isn't relevant underwater. Something can weigh a kilogram and still float, it's the weight relative to the object's size that matters. In fact to say "Able to lift up to 1kg in weight " doesn't make sense because kg isn't a measurement of weight.

:?

Certainly doesn't :?, Grams aren't a measurement of weight either then. I think in terms of mass displacement in the great ocean it WILL lift a 1 kilo steel weight to the surface :thumbsup:

It goes without saying that a kilo of polystyrene / balsa wood / feathers...etc ......etc Will float But will have to take up a masssive amount more space, so not really something you would tuck in your pocket really :-D

My Dad has a canal barge and he has a big cork ball on his keys! :-) might just get him one of these for xmas!

When I first saw these I thought they were a good idea but then I thought about it and most of the things listed, including modern car keys would be useless after dropping them in the water. What you really need is an AQUAPAC - aquapac.net/uks…tml which floats anyway.

This thing would make finding the camera you dropped in the water and is now useless easier to spot though.

Saw this on dragons den and it was one of those ideas I really wish I had thought of! Tho me and my mate took about 45 minutes deciding what you would actually use it for lol. Wouldn't have any use for it meself!

interesting but seems too big

Kg and grammes aren't measures of weight. They measure mass.

Weight (newtons) would be a better thing to rate it using. That is, the upward force it can apply against sinking.

Have you just wet your pants with a WaterBuoy Flotation Device in your pocket - or are you just pleased to see me? :roll:

If you drop it in a puddle - don't panic -it has to be emersed fully in water then take a few seconds to "react" then bang the baloon inflates

mum lives on a big boat and she paid 15 ealier in the year for one as they were using cork balls which arnt that attractive and you wouldnt believe how many times they drop keys in the river also shes on her 3 rd fone this year
