The Tektite SOSeFlare™ is a compliant Night electronic Visual Distress Signal, or eVDS, meeting the requirements of 46 CFR 161.013 (Electric Distress Light for Boats). In addition, the KIT package includes a Distress Flag that meets the requirements of 46 CFR 160.072, providing an approved Day Visual Distress Signal, as well as a SOLAS/USCG compliant whistle that fulfills the audible signal carriage requirement.

The KIT included Distress Flag is for signaling during daylight hours. It can be attached to the mast, antenna, or hoisted to the highest point on the vessel. Alternatively, it can be waved by hand, tied to a boat hook, paddle, or fishing rod, or laid flat on the deck to attract the attention of aircraft. To display the flag correctly, show with the black square over the black circle.
