How do you recycle the old cartridge?

Is it worth it to trigger the unit or will that damage the life vest?

Thank you for the reminder, I just purchased two additional vests about two weeks ago. My two older vests state to change in 2011 if the eye color changed ( forgot to what color)

At this stage I will change them both.

Thanks for the response.

Default Mustang hydro vests

If you have access to a pool it would be a good training exercise to activate the vest, this will help to know what to expect. Leave the vest inflated overnight for pressure test, it should still be fully inflated 24 hours later. The cartridges do have to be disposed of properly if the CO2 hasn't been discharged. Anyone with older vests that haven't been checked should know we inspect inflatable life jackets. You can call 1-800-451-2127 for details. Thanks for the post. Brian

Props to LRSE!

Quick on the phone.
Friendly.
Assured me that they had the latest kits in stock.

Avoid Amazon or Ebay when ordering because you may end up with a kit expiring in less than 5 years.

LRSE sent both kits expiring at the end of 2016

Looks like I am ready to rearm 2 of my 4 vests.
These two vests have the clear window peeling off. Any idea what type of adhesive to use? Super glue did not work.
Maybe I should wait a bit to get a fresher version rearm kit? I will not be in the water until April.

ROB,

The Mustang hydrostatic re-arm kits all have 5 year dating. You can email billing and shipping address to me at briank@lrse.com and I can send some out.

Thanks Brian, I will do this soon, but any idea on the peeling off of the clear window? Maybe I can sew it on once I remove the hydrostatic device? Seems like glue does not work.

I have contacted Mustang direct and I'm waiting for their reply. In the meantime, Try calling JRS, they are your closest Mustang dealer to see if they are able to find out what can be done for that.

This is direct from Mustang

This can be repaired but the absence of the clear indicator window will not affect the functionality of the vest.

If the customer chooses to send their MD3183 to one of Mustangs repair facilities we would need to perform a full evaluation and leak test on the unit.
Please have your customer contact one of the following repair facilities provided on the following link:

I hop this helps. BK
