Spinlock; How the Deckvest Inflates

How the Deckvest Inflates

The Spinlock Deckvest is currently fitted with the United Moulders latest operating mechanism the MK5i.The UML automatic system activates when the cartridge mechanism comes into contact with water. The cartridge mechanism is a compressed high powered spring which is held by a paper element. When the paper element comes into contact with water it releases the spring which pushes a plunger forward, in turn forcing a cutter into the C0² cylinder. The C0² then travel into the bladder and inflates the life jacket.

The MK5i life jacket has been engineered with a Nitrile seal to prevent the accidental ingress of moisture and water spray, during hot humid or heavy stormy weather, whilst special vents aid rapid inflation on immersion.



The automatic inflation system is backed up by a manual inflation, which is operated by the user pulling the handle on the breast of the Deckvest.
