An automatic life jacket should be maintained regularly in order to guaranty
a successful operation. Especially when you have a self-inflating life
jacket it is necessary to follow the prescribed maintaining interval.
If there is no maintaining interval given by the manufacturer of the
life jacket, we recommend a checkup 2 years after the purchase.
Even if your life jacket has only been worn without being released, it
is still exposed for example to the sun, salty water and shocks.
You should check your life jackets every time before going on a boating turn
to make sure that your life jacket is fully functional. Check the outer
appearance, the belts, the buckles, the CO2-cartridge and the trigger
function (green display).
Life jackets that are older than 10 years have to be maintained by its
manufacturer and after that the maintenance should happen annually.
Repair of the lifejacket: If your lifejacket is damaged, we can also perform
a repair. From defective seams to exchanging the swim bladder or repairing
the protective cover, everything is possible. The procedure is done in
cooperation with you and a cost estimate is created.
If you wish us to maintain your life jacket, please
