The Spinlock Deckvest Lite 170 adult automatic lifejacket utilises the latest technology to shape the jacket to be less intrusive when worn. With an initiative 'instant-like-fit' simple side donning design the boating lifejacket fits straight over your head and is buckled up on one side, a relatively quick process once you have sized the jacket to your body shape. The slim design runs up the sides and around the neck so you are more free to swivel your head, almost as though you where not wearing a life jacket, and the strap on the back has increased surface area and padding for improved comfort.
How does the Spinlock Deckvest Lite 170 Life Jacket Inflate?
The Spinlock Deckvest Lite is an automatic lifejacket which refers to the way the air chamber is inflated. An automatic system works by way of a dissolvable element that triggers the firing mechanism when dissolved by water submersion. The inflation system operates using a water activated UML Mk5 paper coil inflation system that uses a compressed paper capsule which dissolves when wet, releasing a spring to puncture the replaceable CO2 cylinder. These lifejackets are rearmable once inflated.
With this automatic life jacket an easy grab manual pull cord is also easy to hand incase a problem occurs and the auto-inflation mechanism has not triggered. An oral tube is handy to keep the jacket inflated should you be in the water for a while and the rescue whistle provides a means for making noise.
The Spinlock Deckvest Lite 170 Life Jacket Design
This boating lifejacket is manufactured with an independent internal air bladder and robust exterior protection jacket. The exterior protection jacket is designed to prevent piercing of the internal air bladder and wraps around the air bladder and held together firmly with a quick release zip. The silver piping trim and green colour splashes adds a sportier image to the boat life jacket and features adjustable straps with quick locking buckle for ease of use. The crotch strap buckle fastener is located at the bottom, inside the front protection jacket, and can easily be removed if it is not required.
When the jacket inflates the internal bladder 'pops' its way through the quick release zip that runs around the external protective casing while it inflates. Important safety features such as brightly colours yellow bladder and reflective patches on the bladder help to improve visibility, whilst the grab handle is useful for hoisting the wearer out.
