In this instructional video from NRS, we show you how to re-stuff your rescue throw bag so it will be ready to go when you need it most. A poorly stuffed rope bag can not only be frustrating, it can be dangerous.

Q:Hello. Thanks for taking my question. Does the Pro Guardian Wedge Waist Throw Bag Double as a tow rope?Asked on 4/20/2015 by Nick from Bowling Green, KY
A:Nick, this is a throw bag that you wear around your waist, so that it's always with you, whether you're in the boat or out of it. The throw bag itself is housed in the waist bag. You pull it out to make the throw. It's not designed to be a tow rope.Answered on 4/20/2015 by Clyde from NRS
A:I am sure you could create a situation where the bag and waist strap could be used as a tow rope. However, in my assessment this product is not made to function as a tow rope or rescue tether. The easy to throw rope bag sits inside of the sleeve that you see in the retailer photo. Once you remove the throw bag (the sleeve and belt stay attached to the user) it
Functions exactly as a throw bag would. If you used it as a tow rope it would end up paying out the rope's entire length and you would have 50+ feet of rope in the water. Best bet is to stick with a tow line or bungee attached to your rescue pfd. Hope that helps!
