How to Create a Waterproof Bite Alarm Set?

By: Mark Johnson


In this blog, we will delve into the process of creating a completely waterproof bite alarm set and examine if the BiteKeeper Pro bite alarm set meets the rigorous IP66 waterproof standards.


1. Bite Alarm Waterproof Housing:

A fishing alarm typically features a waterproof housing with excellent sealing properties. This casing is commonly made from materials such as waterproof ABS plastic, which offer inherent water resistance and effectively protect the internal components from moisture and humidity.


  • BiteKeeper Pro Bite Alarms utilise waterproof ABS plastic material for its housing.



2. Bite Alarm Waterproof Sealing

Silicone gaskets and sealant are commonly used for achieving waterproof sealing in alarm devices. Silicone has excellent sealing properties and can effectively prevent water from seeping into sensitive areas, safeguarding the internal components of fishing alarms, thus is widely used by manufacturers. However, over time, these O-rings may age and lose their effectiveness. The second method involves applying sealant to seal the interfaces. To ensure stronger accuracy and standardization, advanced models may use machine dispensing.

  • The use of machine dispensing during the manufacturing process ensures precise application of sealant, enhancing both the waterproofing and quality control of the BiteKeeper Pro bite alarm set.
  • BiteKeeper Pro bite alarms are equipped with a rubber-capped bobbin port, providing an additional layer of protection against water ingress.
  • The sealed rechargeable battery enhances the overall waterproofing capabilities of the alarms.


3. Bite Alarm Waterproofed Circuit Board

Ensuring the protection of internal components is crucial for maintaining the functionality of a fishing alarm. Manufacturers achieve this by incorporating a waterproofed Printed Circuit Board (PCB). Sealed electronic components are coated with a protective layer to prevent moisture intrusion.

  • The circuit board of the BiteKeeper Pro bite alarms has undergone waterproof treatment.


4. Bite Alarm Waterproof Testing

Before a waterproof fishing alarm is released to the market, it undergoes extensive waterproof testing. These tests may include water pressure testing, immersion testing, or spray testing. Each test checks the fishing alarm's ability to withstand various water conditions. Additionally, look for fishing alarms with an Ingress Protection (IP) rating, such as IP66 or even IP67, which indicates the level of water resistance achieved during these tests.

  • Instead of relying on manually assembled silicone rings for waterproofing, the Bite Keeper Pro utilizes machine dispensing technology. This, combined with rigorous tests involving pressurized waterproof testing and simulated heavy rain scenarios, guarantees the highest level of waterproof performance.


In conclusion, the BiteKeeper Pro bite alarms with receiver have undergone rigorous testing to meet IP66 waterproof standards. Enjoy uninterrupted fishing experience with Bitekeeper Pro on rainy days!
