SOS Stick Trekking Pole Concept by Kim Jieon uses both aural and visual alerts to inform rescuers of the location of an lost hiker. The trekking pole contains a new smoke flare that can be launched simply by a trigger within the handle. Pressing a safety pin on the handle releases the handle and allows entry to the flare, which is saved within the pole’s aluminium shaft. The flare will be placed in the handle stem. The handle should be held with the two hands for stability. Pressing the release button launches your flare.
