The Quick Deploy Deluxe Signal System is completely enclosed in the pouch when not in use. To deploy, the diver grasps the Deploy Strap and pulls the reel and the signal tube out of the pouch. The diver inflates the Signal Tube with his Octopus 2nd stage by purging air out of the regulator's mouthpiece into the large one-way valve on the bottom of the tube (if available) or by orally inflating the oral inflator valve. The diver can then drop the reel which unwinds and let the tube ascend to the surface. The diver encircles the line loosely with the thumb and fingers and ascends to the desired depth.
