Built with Safety in Mind

Suitable for USCG-approved 24-inch ring buoys, the Guardian Life Ring Cabinets feature a built-in Ropemaster™ Quick Release Rope Management System. Allowing for quick and easy deployment of the life ring, the secure life ring cabinet also comes with easy-to-follow instructions and a usage indicator for speedy inspection.

Manufactured from Durapol™ material, the cabinets offer strong and durable protection to the life ring inside, protecting it from theft, vandalism, and adverse weather conditions. In cases of saltwater exposure, a water seal minimizes damage to the rope and buoy, and a strong cabinet door knuckle hinge and hinge rod resist corrosion.
