Cartridge installation and care

How to do your annual safety check:

  1. Once a year, weigh your canister to check for any leakage. This is unlikely but worth an annual check for peace of mind.  The correct weight is shown on the canister.
  2. Whilst you have the canister removed, unscrew the bearing cap, piston, spring and key ball
  3. Check components for any abnormal wear (unlikely but worth a check). Any corrosion, cracks?
  4. With a soft cloth, wipe off all components and gently clean the inside of the spring holder
  5. When everything is clean, put back the components (in the right order).  Check the short video below
