Mustang Survival recommends a complete inspection of your immersion suit by a factory authorized inspector & repair facility at intervals not
exceeding 2 years. Immersion suits 5 years or older should be inspected annually.
Maintenance instructions to fit rescue light
This suit comes equipped with a special front neoprene patch designed to hold a rescue light.
To fit the light, insert bulb through hole in the light holder patch so that the dome faces out.
Follow manufacturer direction for operation.
Annual Inspection
1.
Unpack the suit and lay it out flat, separating the inside buoyant liner from the outside shell of the suit.
2.
Inspect all areas of the suit for visible signs of damage or degradation. Also inspect for rips, tears or small punctures.
3.
Close and open zipper several times to check for smooth operation. Lubricate the inside and outside of the front waterproof zipper with paraffin wax after each use.
4.
The head support pillow should be inspected for damage. Inflate the pillow by depressing the mouth valve cap and blowing through the valve. The pillow should fully
inflate and remain rigid.
5.
Leave the pillow fully inflated for a period of 6 hours. At the end of the 6 hours, the pillow should still feel
hard to the touch and maintain its general rigidity.
6.
Check the inflation hose for leaks or kinks which could also inhibit inflation of the pillow. Any major leakage should be repaired by the manufacturer.
7.
Deflate the pillow by pressing the insert inside the top of the mouth inflation tube.
8.
To store suit, always ensure your Ocean Commander is fully dry prior to stowing in its stowage bag.
9.
Replace inside buoyant liner by attaching to inside snaps along the shell front and inside boot.
10. Always roll your suit feet first to the head area making sure that the head support pillow and inflation hose have no creases, fold in the arms and continue to roll suit
lengthwise. Replace in stowage bag and always ensure that it is accessible in case of emergency.
11. Never compress your Ocean Commander by placing heavy objects on top of it, as this could result in loss of buoyancy to the inside foam liner.
Repairs & Replacements
1.
Damage to both the external shell and inner buoyant liner can be repaired by an authorized Mustang repair station. Major tears, rips or punctures and chemical or heat
burns must be inspected and repaired by the manufacturer.
Cleaning instructions
1.
To clean the Ocean Commander Immersion suit, begin by removing the inside foam liner from the outer shell.
2.
Remove salt and stains using a mild detergent in cold or warm water. Avoid scrubbing the patches of reflective tape. Do not use volatile fluids such as petroleum distillates
to clean the suit as they will break down the welded material.
3.
The inside foam liner can be handwashed with mild detergent and rinsed thoroughly with clean water, then hung to dry. The outer shell component should be cleaned in
the same manner, stains can be cleaned
by gently rubbing with a soft brush.
4.
Do not dry clean.
CAUTION
Suit may not fit some persons near high or low end of size range. Try on suit wearing garments you typically wear on the vessel.
