CARE OF YOUR AIRBAG VEST
Tutorial : how to change your Horse Pilot airbag cartridge?
- Before you start:
- • Always replace the refill in a clean environment.
- • Never place your fingers on the pistons.
The different steps to change the gas refill of your air vest:
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.
