SOS Stick / Climbing Stick

SOS Stick
SOS Stick

The SOS Stick is a alpenstock for an accident or lost way in mountains and jungles.
The Climbing pole contains a helium gas and a long string balloon printed SOS.
When you meet with a disaster in forest, you could fly the air balloon in the mountain bar to the air.
The SOS balloon high in the sky can inform a signal for help and my position in the deep woods to the rescue team effectively.
