A life jacket will also turn you round if you are unconscious in the water, buoyancy aids will not perform this function. Do remember that the life jacket will not keep your head above water if it is ill fitting. You should ensure that there are crotch straps fitted.

    ******* = straps that go between your legs from the back up to your front and clasp in, for some reason that part of the anatomy is deemed not suitable for posting!

How can I maintain the life jackets I own?


You should remember that the materials that life jackets are made out of are synthetic and nylon and can be harmed over time by sun radiation. So you must keep them in the shadow, and even better in a room or a garage. Also you should keep them in a dry place since water can also damage your life jackets over time.

How do I know that the life jacket fits?


First, make sure that you are trying a lifejacket that fits your weight and height. The best way to test it is to work in a pair. Hold your hands straight above your head and have someone else pull up the tops of the arm openings. If the jacket covers your face or chin, it is too large.

Can children wear adults life jacket?


No. It is very important that life jackets will properly fit the person that wears it. Life Jacket first and main purpose is to keep your head and shoulder above water. If the jacket is loose the floatation will push the jacket around the face and if it's too small it will not float.

My 1991 honda accord runs hot its full of colliant and it pushes it out of the jug whats going on


Sounds to me like a blown head gasket. Compression leaking over into the water jacket and or leaking from combustion pressure leaking over into the water jacket pushed coolant out the overflow. This would be the better of another possible problem, water leaking into the oil! Water neither cools or lubricates the bearings which unfortunately live a short life. Check your oil. If it looks like Chicken Soup you may need a short block. I hope it is only your head gasket.

the water jackets are part of the casting of the engine block they surround the cylinders water jackets dont corrode away they clog or if they are leaking u have a cracked engine block if u are getting antifreeze into oil and steam out of exhaust more than likely its a head gasket-- because if u crack a water jacket that usually means a blown engine and need to replace or rebuild ---and the additive usually works for radiator leaks and some minor head gasket leaks
