HOW SHOULD THE CARTRIDGES BE STORED?
In a place that is protected from direct sunlight.
HOW LONG ARE THEY USABLE FOR?
There is no expiration date. You can use them as long as the weight of the gas is in the range of - 10% of the nominal weight (printed on each cartridge), meaning at least 10 years or more.
AS THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT CARTRIDGES, DOES IT MATTER IN WHICH POSITION EACH CARTRIDGE IS INSTALLED?
Each cartridge has its own screw thread size, meaning it will only fit in its intended spot.
ONCE INFLATED, HOW CAN THE SYSTEM BE DEFLATED?
Just push the valve flap on the inflator to release the airbag. (Make sure to use the re-load tool)
IS THERE A PROPER WAY TO FOLD THE BAG BACK INTO THE AIRBAG POCKET?
Yes, please follow our instructions in the manual. You can find it in the backpack you purchased and on this website.
HOW IS THE AIRBAG INSTALLED?
Please follow the instructions in the document "How to mount the Alpride 2.0 system".
HOW DO WE REACTIVATE THE SYSTEM ONCE USED?
1. Deflate the airbag
2. Fold the airbag back into the airbag pocket
3. On the inflator, screw the spring back so the indicator is no
4. Replace the cartridges
5. Ready to use
