I attach a piece of paracord to the toggle and to the kill cord at the switch end. If I go over, the pressure on the cord before the kill switch is pulled is sufficient to inflate the Jacket.

I have tested this a few times on jackets that were due to have their cylinders replaced and it has never failed to operate.

I use my scuba BCD (a nice old, but still indestructible Buddy Commando), partially inflated before I even get on the boat. If the water's rough, I'll inflate it more. It's comfortable, holds me upright in the water, and makes me look completely stupid!

It stops me from drowning? It acts as a lifejacket? You could buy one to use as one, although it would be a bit pricey
