QUICK SELF-INFLATING TAPE / Lifesaving equipment


Every year, a lot of floods occur all around the world and threaten people’s life and property. This is a quick self-inflating tape. When you use it, you can just press the button and it will get gas-filled automatically, and then get a gasbag. You can stick it to a board or door to get a simple life raft.
