The 24HSD from Gearward

Date February 7, 2015

The 24HSD from Gearward combines a mini signal mirror for daytime use, and a glow-in-the-dark tag for night use, in a package small enough to be carried at all times.


The chrome tag works like the classic signal mirror, which is issued in military survival kits the world over. The way it works is that the mirror bounces the sunlight toward to person or aircraft being signaled, and since the sun is extremely bright, even a small mirror flash can be seen for miles.

To use the 24HSD for night time signaling, the tag is spun on the supplied cord in what is known as the “buzzsaw technique.” This creates a 3′ wide glowing O that is visible from all directions, and is very attention getting.
