Do not remove or modify any part of the airbag or the jacket fabric. Do not forget to remove the CO2 cartridge once used (use the same brand and same capacity when reloading). Take out any sharp objects from your pockets before using your Helite airbag. Check that your airbag is in good working condition, i.e. no rips or tears, before each use. Store your Helite airbag on a clothes hanger in a dry place. Keep away from high temperatures and humidity. Do not sew or stick anything onto the Helite airbag (neither the airbag itself nor its fabric) as it could pierce the airbag and prevent it from working properly.
