B WARNING
Follow all the instructions in this manual carefully and heed all safety precautions. Improper use of this diving helmet could result in serious injury or death.
B WARNING
Kirby Morgan Dive Systems, Inc. (KMDSI) warns all divers who use Kirby Morgan diving helmets or masks to be sure to use only KMDSI original parts from a KMDSI authorized dealer. Although other parts, O-rings and fittings may appear to fit your Kirby
Morgan diving helmet or mask, they may not be manufactured to the same standards
maintained by KMDSI. The use of any parts other than KMDSI original parts may lead
to equipment failure and accidents.
B WARNING
Diving in waters that are chemically, biologically, or radiologically contaminated is
extremely hazardous. Although Kirby Morgan diving helmets may be adapted for use
in some contaminated environments, special training, equipment, and procedures are
necessary. Do not dive in a contaminated environment unless you have been thoroughly trained and equipped for this type of diving.
Read this manual before using or maintaining the helmet, even if you have experience with other diving helmets. If you have purchased the helmet new from a dealer, be sure to send in the warranty registration
card so we may keep you informed of any safety notices that affect this product. If you resell or loan this

the manual. In addition to the manual a log book should be used to log all repairs, maintenance and use.
B WARNING
This helmet was completely checked and should be ready to dive as it was shipped

www.divelab.com.
B WARNING
Diving is a life threatening occupation. Even if you do everything right you can still be
killed or injured. None of the models of Kirby Morgan helmets or masks can prevent
accidents, injuries or death due to improper training, poor-health, improper supervision, improper job requirements, improper maintenance or acts of God.
Important Safety Information: This Kirby Morgan 37SS diving helmet is intended for use by trained divers
