SET-UP

To use the C-Protect Air®, your equipment must be correctly attached and adjusted to ensure that the vest deploys in the event of a fall. 

This is a detailed guide describing the different steps required to set up the components needed for the vest to work.

1 > SADDLE STRAP

You are provided with an adjustable saddle strap that must be hooked over the stirrup bars. The carabiner on the vest’s lanyard is then clipped onto the stirrup bars.


The adjustable saddle strap is fitted with a D-ring, which the lanyard carabiner clips onto, and two adjustable loops that hook over the stirrup bars.

Hook the loops at each end of the saddle strap over the stirrup bars on either side of your saddle.

2 > ADJUST THE STRAP

 

 

Adjust the saddle strap so that the D-ring is at the centre of the saddle’s pommel. This will make it easier to adjust your C-Protect Air® in the next step.



3 > ADJUST THE LENGTH

 

The distance between the vest and the saddle must be adjusted to ensure that the C-Protect Air® deploys when needed.

1) To do this, put your airbag vest on and mount your horse.

 


2) Clip the lanyard onto the saddle strap’s D-ring using the carabiner and ensure that the tension in the lanyard is sufficient.

3) The elastic lanyard must be taut when the rider is standing up in the stirrups with their legs straight.

 

4) If there is too much or too little tension in the lanyard, adjust the height of the saddle strap’s D-ring to shorten or lengthen the distance using the adjustable loops. This will increase or decrease the tension in the lanyard to match your body stature.This ensures that the rider has sufficient ease of movement while riding but that the airbag will be triggered and effectively deployed in the event of an accident.

4 > THE C-PROTECT AIR® AIRBAG VEST IN ACTION

After carefully following these steps, simply clip the vest’s lanyard carabiner onto the saddle strap’s D-ring and you are ready to ride, safe in the knowledge that you are protected by the C-Protect Air®.

Don’t forget to detach the carabiner before dismounting.
