That is actually a manual inflation tube. ACR makes a strobe that fits over it.

The clip on the bottom attaches to the bottom of the pfd. When the pfd inflates it pulls out a tab and starts the strobe.

That is what I have.

While wearing a tether, also have a knife on a lanyard that can sever the tether if need be. There are lots of discussions about which one is best. I use a Wichard rigging knife. I keep it and a small Mag light with a red lens in a case on the belt of the pfd.
