Safety Lanyard

The emergency engine safety switch, called the lanyard, is an ignition cut-off switch designed to stop the engine in the event of an operator being thrown from position or moving too far from the helm.

The lanyard is equipped with a hook on one end for attachment to your clothing or PFD, and the opposite end has a slide that fits over the switch. Be sure that the slide is firmly attached to the switch before starting.

The switch is located near the throttle control box. If the slide is left off or loose, the engine will crank but will not start.

The safety switch lanyard must be attached to the operator whenever the engine is started.
Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death.
