How does the automatic trigger system work?
When dropped in water, the salt bobbin dissolves instantly, piercing the canister of compressed CO₂ and inflating the bladder in less than five seconds.
To re-arm the jacket:
- Deflate it using the back of the oral inflation tube cap.
- Fold the bladder and close the textile cover.
Change the cartridge and the salt bobbin following the instructions for the re-arming kit: 8303768
How to re-arm your jacket?
Be careful to install in the correct order:
1. Remove the CO² bobbin and the salt bobbin
2. Replacing the salt bobbin
3. Replacing the CO² cartridge
If you do not follow this order of installation, there is a risk of striking the new cartridge if the trigger system for the salt bobbin has been previously used.
When to replace the gas cartridge and the salt bobbin
The dates shown on the CO² cartridge and the salt bobbin have different meanings:
Salt bobbin = expiry date. The bobbin must be replaced beyond this date.
CO² cartridge = date of manufacture. The cartridge must be replaced 5 years after this date.
How to recycle consumables
The used or expired gas cartridge should be disposed of with WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment).
The expired salt bobbin should be disposed of with household waste.
