A word of warning the lifejackets we use at work (crewsavers) is that the cylinders come unscrewed in the boot of cars due to vibrations.

Also there is a recall/notice on the mk 3 firing heads as they are allowing gas to escape when they discharge. You can get a little rubber gromet to solve the problem.

Just for clarity, it's not a recall but a customer-fit modification. Have a look here: http://www.crewsaver.co.uk/mk3/mk3%2...ing%20head.pdf
- and if your lifejacket is affected then have a look here: http://www.crewsaver.co.uk/mk3/index.htm

In summary, it looks like salt-tablet type automatic lifejackets with a pale blue operating head are affected.

Mr B you spot on!

I tried to find the link but no joy!

We have just done the mods at work and despite some being quite new a lot did need the mk3 modification.
