When changing your cartridge, make sure you're in a clean environment and never put your fingers on the pistons.
Only replace the recharge with an IN&MOTION recharge compatible with the TWIST'AIR VEST. Only recharges supplied by IN&MOTION and its dealers are certified. Make sure that no other references are used.
AFTER INFLATING YOUR AIRBAG VEST
After each inflation of the vest, carry out the following checks before using your airbag again:
1. Check that the airbag vest fabrics are not damaged,
2. Check that the plastic of the trigger system is not damaged,
To deflate the airbag, flatten it on a clean surface and press down on each chamber with both forearms.
In case of damage or malfunction, do not use your Horse Pilot / IN&MOTION airbag and contact customer service. They will advise you on whether maintenance is required.
STEP N°1 : REMOVE THE RECHARGE
Lower the two latches on the side of the trigger with your thumb and forefinger.
While holding both latches down, place your free hand under the recharge and your thumb on the trigger (as shown in the diagram).
Using your thumb, push the recharge upwards to remove it.
Do not pull the recharge in the direction shown in the diagram.
STEP N°2 : UNSCREW THE CAP
Using the Allen wrench 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 on a little until the red marking is no longer visible.
STEP N°3 : PUSH THE PISTON
Push piston 1 using the Allen wrench provided on the back of the trigger until the hole in the piston is aligned with the hole in the trigger.
Please make sure that the hole in the piston is of a “metal” colour. If the hole is black, the piston has not been pushed in properly.
The piston may have rotated around its axis. If the hole in the piston is not visible, please use the Allen key to orientate the piston properly.
Still using the Allen wrench, push pistons 2, 3, and 4 into their seats.
STEP N°4 : INSTALL THE PIN
Place the release pin in the piston hole, ensuring that it is firmly seated.
While holding the pin in place with your thumb, screw the cap back on until the arrow on the cap and the arrow on the trigger are aligned.
STEP N°5 : FIT THE NEW RECHARGE
Fit the new recharge: Insert the new recharge by clipping it onto the trigger. Then put the elastic back on to hold it in place.
STORAGE AND USE OF THE RECHARGE
The recharge contains the gas cartridges (CO2) needed to inflate the waistcoat.
The recharge should be handled and stored carefully out of the reach of children at temperatures not exceeding 45°C (113°F).
Do not repair. Do not perforate. Do not reuse the recharge after inflation. Do not dismantle. Do not use or attempt to use with any other equipment than the TWIST'AIR vest nor without the TWIST'AIR vest.
Even if it has not inflated, the recharge’s weight must be checked every year: 204 grams (+/- 6 grams). If the recharge is below this weight, it must be replaced.
