January 2015 UPDATE: Service Bulletin for Mammut and Snowpulse Avalanche Airbags

In March of 2014 Mammut issued a service bulletin for certain models of avalanche airbags--this is new information that may affect your airbag whether or not yours was included in the previous service bulletin.  In certain rare cases Mammut discovered that the metal tube connecting the trigger mechanism to the airbag itself could come unscrewed--this is easily identifiable and should be a part of everyone's routine equipment check every time they use their airbag.  For the model-year 2014/2015 a manufacturing change prevents this from happening.  Now, Mammut has produced a special custom-fitted clip that is specifically designed to prevent any of the pre-2014 model-year airbags from ever coming unscrewed.  The clips are small and very lightweight, and are easy to snap into place yourself on all affected airbag models and are available free of charge.
