GA-12 Donning and operating instructions
STEP 1: Grasp the polybag and pull the "tear" strip free of the bag opening in the sewn end.
STEP 2: Remove the floatation device from the polybag.
STEP 3: Open the floatation device and don over the head with the inflator facing toward the front.
STEP 4: Wrap the two harness tie straps about the waist and tie in a knot in front.
STEP 5: After donning completely, pull the red "JERK TO INFLATE" handle to discharge the CO2 cartridge, thus inflating the floatation chamber.
STEP 6: The floatation chamber may also be inflated by forcing air into the chamber by mouth using the oral inflation tube - either for "topping off" the chamber due to gradual air loss - or in the event of failure of the CO2 gas cartridge.
