The Personal Distress
Signals pack contains 9 red aerial flare cartridges and a projector firing mechanism, all enclosed in a tough, water-resistant case. The projector is fitted with a stainless-steel spring and striker pin. It
features a slot for easy loading and unloading of the flare cartridge
with the trigger in the safety catch position. Each cartridge projects
its payload to a height of over 46 meters, burns for over 5.5 seconds at
a minimum of 10,000 candela and is visible for at least 5 miles in
daylight increasing to 10 miles at night, depending on weather
conditions. Operating instructions are on the case.
