Electronic Time Release
Trap Recovery System
The unit will release the buoy after a specified amount of hours or days in the sea. Its line can be used as a guide making it possible to haul heavier gear using a carabiner, a thicker line and a grapple.
High predictability provided by an electronic release mechanism increases the chance for locating the buoy and recover the trap.
The timer is easily set using our mobile app.
