Seize Ring / DIY

Seize Ring

Reeds have many uses in ancient times, and they grow in swamps, riversides, beaches, and other wetlands, and are widely distributed. In the area of Lake Titicaca, people there use reeds to make small islands and boats to live on.So I would like to say that make use of the floating characteristics of reeds , with a simple binding device, so the local people who lives in areas of growing reeds or other similar plant can acquire necessary material locally, and make low-cost swimming ring.
Seize ring is a flexible plastic strip, the buckles on both sides can be assembled.
Not only in use, but also convenient in transportation and manufacturing
