BEFORE YOU BEGIN:
- Always replace the refill cartridge in a clean environment.
- Never place your fingers on the pistons.
#1 Remove the refill cartridge
To begin, lay your vest flat in front of you. For a better grip, we suggest you place the trigger in the direction indicated on the diagram shown on the left.
Using your thumb and index finger, slide the 2 latches a few millimeters down towards the bottom of the vest (you will feel resistance when the latches are lowered).
While holding the 2 latches in the down position, place your free hand under the refill cartridge and your thumb on the trigger (as shown on the diagram). Using your thumb, pull the refill up towards you to remove it.
⚠ CAUTION : Do not pull the refill cartridge in the direction shown in the diagram.
#2 Unscrew the cap
Using the Allen key on the back of the trigger, unscrew the cap until you see the “STOP” and stop before you see the red marking.
If the red marking appears, screw the cap back in a little until it is no longer visible.
#3 Push the piston
To recharge your airbag you must replace the piston that was used to puncture the gas cartridges in the refill holster.
Push the piston with the Allen key (provided on the back of the trigger) until the hole in the piston is aligned with the hole in the trigger.
⚠ CAUTION : Make sure the hole in the piston is “metal” in color. If the hole is black, the piston has not been fully lowered.
⚠ CAUTION : The piston may have turned on itself. If the hole in the piston is not visible, use the Allen key to put the piston back on its axis.
#4 Install the pin
Place the trigger pin into the hole in the plunger, making sure it is seated properly.
While holding the pin down with your thumb, screw the cap back on until the arrow on the cap lines up with the arrow on the trigger.
⚠ CAUTION : Make sure the pin stays in place while you screw the cap back on.
#5 Replace the refill cartridge
Insert the new refill cartridge by clipping it onto the trigger. Then replace the rubber band to hold it in place.
⚠ CAUTION : You know that the refill is properly installed when you hear a small “click”
