The Hammar Hydrostatic Release Device (Hydrostat) is a reliable tool to aid in water rescue. The device can withstand even the most severe weather conditions. If the boat is suddenly submerged, the Hammar hydrostat is activated by water pressure and automatically releases the liferaft from its mount.
This hydrostat is made of glass fibre reinforced nylon, so the device is not subject to corrosion. It is maintenance-free (but needs to be replaced every 2 years).
Lifetime: 2 years, from date of installation onboard.
No servicing required.
2 shackles (bow type Ø 8 mm, not included) are necessary for installation.
