    As PSD divers, a similar one is used to mark location of a "car in the canal" for example, so additional divers can rapidly locate and continue searching for victims, especially at night. The one we use has a weight instead of a clip on the free end. There's a clip on the bouy side to keep it from unraveling further once deployed and on the surface.

    Pelican Float with 100' (30.5 meter) Line

    The real Pelican float, I still have and use the one I picked up in 1980. It has a detachable weight, you unclip the weight and let go, the weight drops to the bottom and float goes to the surface. It's neutral togather clipped to your rig.
