Servicing

service card imageLifejacket servicing is so important and unfortunately it is quite often overlooked. It is vital to check that the lifejacket is in perfect working order so that it won't let you down when you need it the most. We recommend that you get your lifejacket serviced annually to maintain it's optimum performance. You wouldn't drive a car without an MOT so don't wear a lifejacket without getting it serviced.
