Help people in emergency situations!

A long life at sea and ice means that Lars-Håkan Lindqvist has seen the need to help people or boats in emergency. From this need the following tools were developed:

Hansa-dubben (ice picks) came to the market in the late 1960s. They set a standard for ice picks be worn around the neck and every winter they save many lives. 

Hansa-linan has set a standard for the throwing line as the tool for reaching a person or boat in emergency at sea and ice.

The cords of circular lifebuoys needed protection from light and kept free of clutter. A canister based on the principle of Hansa-linan was created! 

MOB Rescue Line is the evolution of Hansa-linan with the aim to quickly reach, safe and help a person out of the water. Or to get a rope to a boat in emergency.

Lars-Håkan Lindqvist.
