“Mammut asks owners of a Mammut / Snowpulse avalanche airbag to preventively re-equip the release units of the backpacks. The recommendation for re-equipment with a special plastic clip refers to the connection between the release mechanism and the Venturi valve. This affects the avalanche airbags from the production years winter 2011/2012 up to and including winter 2013/2014.
Last spring, Mammut called for a visual inspection of the release unit of the Mammut / Snowpulse avalanche airbags. Intense subsequent inspections showed at the time that the screwed connection between the release unit and the Venturi nozzle may come loose in very rare cases at very intense use of the airbag. Mammut now eliminates the residual risk remaining after individual inspection with a special re-equipment part: A specially developed Venturi clip prevents coming loose of the respective connection entirely. This subsequently removes this possible error source and can no longer cause loss of function when using the airbag.
Re-equipment of the Venturi clip can be performed quickly and easily by any customer. The required clip with installation instructions can be requested free of charge via an order form”
