Mammat are asking all owners of Mammut Snowpulse bags from Winter 11/12 and Winter 12/13 to check that a part of their system has been properly assembled. All details below. If you have purchased an airbag from Facewest since Aug 2011 and we have your email address then we have sent you an email with the details, asking you to check. We have also included all customers from the 13/14 season just to be sure. It’s a perk of buying online that owners of certain products can be quickly identified in circumstances like these and another reason to register your safety gear with the manufacturers site if possible.
Service Bulletin for inspection of Mammut and Snowpulse avalanche airbags
Dear Mammut Dealer,Follow-up inspections have shown that there is a possible assembly problem affecting individual Mammut and Snowpulse brand avalanche airbags from the Winter 2011/2012 and Winter 2012/2013 production seasons. The problem is an improperly screwed-in connector between the deployment mechanism and the venturi valve. Since Mammut cannot rule out that this problem could result in a loss of function in the event of use, we hereby request that all customers inspect the connection in accordance with the instructions provided and follow the advice given below.
If end consumers identify a problem we advise them to discontinue use of the airbag immediately. If this is the case, please contact Mammut Customer Services to arrange a repair. Please see contact details below.
