Jeremy Dale, Managing Director of SeaSafe, comments, “Superficially a lifejacket can look fine and appear in good condition but it could be hiding all kinds of defects. We have had lifejackets back here with heavily corroded CO2 gas bottles, loose or detached gas bottles, lungs that are damaged with rips, tears and holes, used and never re-armed lifejackets, operating mechanisms with missing parts and many other critical problems. It’s why we set up our ‘rogues gallery’ of images on our website showing the appalling condition some lifejackets are in when they come back to us for servicing.” “The key thing to remember is that a lifejacket is only that if it works, and if it’s never been serviced or not regularly serviced then it really isn’t worth taking a chance – better to be safe and not sorry. Our growing nationwide network of lifejacket servicing makes it easy to get the servicing done but even if there isn’t a Service Point nearby we can deal direct, arranging collection and return at a location of the customer’s choice, even their home.”To locate your nearest Lifejacket Service Point visit: www.seasafe.co.uk where you can also see the ‘rogues gallery’ of lifejackets.
