  • PROPELLER SAFE – Retract-a-float’s retrieve your excessive rope to meet the height of the low tide, making it safer for boats avoiding crab pots.

No knots • No tangles • No mess

The Retract-a-Float is a simple solution to a myriad of problems. Crab pot floats have become synonymous with masses of knots and tangles, ropes being caught up in propellers or tangled in mangroves.

Retract-a-Float’s are constructed from high quality stainless steel and corrosion resistant engineer grade polypropolene and keep 6 metres of rope neatly coiled under tension within the float itself, only uncoiling enough to keep the float directly above the pot.
