You're ready for your first outing with your airbag backpack and are wondering about the steps to recharge and reset it. Here are the steps to follow for your first adventure:
1 - Buy some Alpride cartridges. Open the box and take the cartridges out.
2 - Use the arming tool to arm the inflation system. To do this, screw it until the red light disappears. Then remove the tool by unscrewing it and store it away.
3 - Install the two cartridges in the inflation system.
4 - Make sure the cartridges are screwed in properly.
5 - Close the fabric cover around the inflation system and cartridges.
6 - Prepare your bag for your session.
7 - Put the bag on and adjust the shoulder straps, chest strap, belt and crotch strap to your size.
8 - Open the zip to release the trigger handle and adjust the height so it's easy to reach.
Before you leave, practice setting off the airbag, disarming the system beforehand of course, otherwise it could cost you dear in Alpride cartridges! Learning how to grab the handle and measure the strength needed to set it off is important so you are prepared when needed.
