The Surefire Starter shock tube initiator has been in operation for years. The pocket size unit is lightweight and comes with a belt case.
Existing methods of initiation rely upon explosive primer systems which are often unreliable and inconvenient to use. The Surefire Starter generates a discharge right inside the shock tube, initiating with great reliability.
When in use, the open end of the shock tube lead-in line is inserted into the initiation tip of the unit with the central electrode inserted into the shock tube.
To fire, the firing button should be held down for three seconds and on release, the shot will fire.
