1. Install the connector cord on the stirrup bars. 

Simply install the connector cord provided in the packaging on your saddle.

It fits on each stirrup bar of your saddle. Adjust the lanyard so that the connector cord does not move. 

The connector strap should be centered on the connector cord to ensure a perfect release if you fall, regardless of direction. Do not attempt to attach it to one of the rings on the hunting collar, as this is not strong enough.

You can purchase another connector cord here, for your second saddle or in case of loss. 

2. Arming your airbag 

When you receive your airbag, it already has its connecting strap installed on the system.

Open the small pocket of the airbag which contains the release system. 

Screw the new cartridge on the airbag. Screw it on tightly.

The cartridge should be tight but cannot be screwed all the way in.
