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.

Retirer la cartouche de l'étui

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).

Enlever la recharge de l'étui

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.

#3 Push the piston

Pousser le piston pour recharger

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
