When dropped in water, the salt bobbin dissolves instantly, releasing the firing pin that then pierces the cylinder of compressed CO₂. This allows the bladder to inflate in only a few seconds. When inflating, the bladder opens the life jacket's zip.
To re-arm the life jacket:
- deflate it using the back of the pipette cap.
- fold in the bladder and zip up the textile cover.
Change the cartridge and the salt bobbin following the instructions from the re-arming kit
Tips for rearming the life jacket.
Follow the order of installation instructions carefully:
1. Replacing the salt bobbin
2. Replacing the CO₂ cylinder
If you do not follow this order of installation, there is a risk of piercing the new cylinder if the salt bobbin inflation system has already been used.
The dates present on the CO₂ cartridge and the salt bobbin have different meanings:
salt bobbin = expiry date. The bobbin must be replaced when this date is exceeded
CO₂ cartridge = date of manufacture. The cartridge must be replaced 5 years after this date.
Putting the flashing light on the life jacket
Do you want to know how to attach a flashing light? It's easy!
- Unzip the life jacket
- Clip the light to the strap (left or right)
- Let the sensor (at the end of the wire) hang down towards the bottom of the life jacket, this is the part that will turn on the light as soon as it comes into contact with water.
