    Includes one Lifejacket key worth £12.00


    Lifecord is a newly designed kill cord providing the certainty and reliability of a tethered connection between a boat’s engine ignition kill switch and pilot, ensuring the vessel’s engine stops should the pilot be inadvertently thrown from the helm.

    A lifejacket key and carry bag are included. You can buy additional Lifejacket keys here >>

    Includes: Lifecord x1, Bag x1 & Lifejacket key x1

    Unlike the typical passive kill cords commonly seen, Lifecord is a ‘smart’ kill cord incorporating detection technology designed to trigger an audible and visual warning alarm should Lifecord be connected to the boat’s kill switch but not the pilot, similar to the seatbelt warning in your car.

    Lifecord simply replaces the boat / engine’s existing kill cord. It is supplied with 7 clip heads contained within the packaging, ensuring it fits virtually every engine/boat type fitted with an existing kill switch. No adaption or alteration to the vessel itself is required to use Lifecord. The clip heads supplied are designed to fit with the list of engine manufacturers below

    Honda (lifting kill switch type)
    Mercury / Mariner (toggle kill switch type)
    Mercury / Mariner / Tohatsu (lifting kill switch type)
    OMC Evinrude (compression kill switch type)
    Suzuki (lifting kill switch type)
    OMC Johnson / Evinrude (compression kill switch type)
    Yamaha (lifting kill switch type)

    Lifecord is packaged in a bespoke, branded, PVC / nylon drawstring bag, useful for product storage. Also included is a GB instruction manual. A small card presentation label and nylon tie ensures minimal packaging to recycle.


    “Lifecord – Technical Specifications”

    Designed and manufactured in Great Britain, Lifecord’s manufacturer operates under quality procedures complying with BS EN ISO 9001:2015 and is manufactured to IP67 rating. Its robust design is intended to withstand a harsh marine environment

    The CR2 battery is readily sourced and easily user replaceable, uses no power when not in use and negligible power in ‘connected’ mode. Combining these, even in commercial use, the battery should last a season or two with ease even when including the current draw during the average time likely for it to be in full alarm mode.

    Included is a one-year manufacturer’s guarantee. (visit cordsafe.co.uk for details, terms and conditions)

      I’ve been lucky enough to have one of the 1st production Lifecords and have used for the last couple of weeks on my Rib. Great idea and excellent build quality. A kill cord safety product like this is long overdue. Jeremy
