Ensnarement and entanglement are very common problems encountered in the field.

The best remedy is to avoid the situation at all. This can be done by not diving in heavy vegetation or near lines or chains.

Sometimes it may become necessary to pull the OpenROV to the surface with the tether. The tether is strong and can handle a great deal of force.

Please note, that pulling the OpenROV to you may entangle the ROV itself which is much larger and difficult to untangle. If this is the case, drive the OpenROV to you or at least the surface where it can be recovered. Then disconnect the tether from the topside adapter box and pull from the side with the ROV.

You can always cut and re-solder the tether using more heatshrink if necessary.
