Much as it grieves me but I do agree with
Mollers in that we have to keep this simple and hon the topic. That is the Kill Cord otherwise people do get confused Sorry I just think if we are going to do this it has to be on the button!!

Red triangle is good (maybe made of kill cord?) - we all know it's a warning. The Kill Cord, despite having "kill" in the name is a good thing, so perhaps no snakes?

Kill Cord in the triangle with Clip it on! underneath?

That takes in a lot of the ideas suggested above. BTW - the word "Kill" in a logo is going to get attention in itself. Non boaters will ask what it means. Any boat user will recognise the name and image. The concept translates well into stickers, clothing and signage.

I like a prop being in there.
How about a prop in a Killcord triangle with wording?

How about something simple. Attached for an example with the actual cord being cliped to the 'd' and attached to the top of the 'tick'
Only a suggestion to try and bring it back to simple and real.


KILL CORD

YES (TICK HERE)

SORRY MY GRAPHIC WOULD NOT LOAD
