Water Buoy (keyring)
« on: September 14, 2009, 05:52:39 PM »


At some appropriate juncture this week I will be doing a stop of product testing.

 I will attach my only set of car & house keys to the, seen on TV, WATER BUOY keyring, self inflating buoyancy device....
 ..... and flinging it into my local lake.

   I shall there upon sing it praises ..... or be walking home.   %%

Yeap... but you only need to loose your keys ....... or very expensive model boat once for it to pay off!

 ( it won't rescue anything over 1Kg but being marketed as an emergency marker buoy ....
    and and I'll put my keys in a sealed plastic bag first!)

I wouldn't trust my keys to any gimmick without testing it first... tie or clip a weight to the bloody thing and save yourself a problem, also is it reuseable or is it a one off job.I use an old cork fishing net float when I go sailing ... It can be used time after time and didn't cost any thing!!! :-))

To test it properly Martin you should leave the key in the ignition before 'flinging'  :} :} :} :}
