SAFETY INFORMATION FOR VEHICLES WITH INTEGRATED SIDE AIRBAGS:

Correct initial fitting and securing of Deploy Safe seat cover on the vehicle is essential to guarantee the safety of the user.

Incorrect fitting can prevent the seat airbag from inflating correctly in the event of a collision.

When fitting Deploy Safe seat cover proceed as follows:

  • Seat covers have Deploy Safe seams on both left and right hand side of each seat cover to permit fitting on either front seat.
  • Driver and passenger seats must be mounted in the correct positions.
  • Seat covers that have slipped must be repositioned. If this is no longer possible because of advanced wear the cover must be removed and replaced.
  • Do not tamper with the opening side seam of the seat cover.
  • Regularly inspect seat covers for wear, damage and seat cover misalignment.
  • Adjust alignment if seat cover twists or moves from its original central aligned position.
  • If the side seam splits for any reason it CANNOT be repaired. Any attempt to re-sew the seam may interfere with the integrated side airbag deployment.
  • Discard seat cover after side airbag activation.
  • Airbag deployment must never be compromised by the incorrect fitting of car seat covers.

Deploy Safe Seat covers are designed to allow the side seams to split open upon deployment of an airbag as they are constructed using a computer controlled stitching process and a specialised thread. Deploy Safe seat covers are suitable for vehicles with or without integrated side airbags.

WARNING: Do not fit seat covers without side airbag allowance to seats with integrated side airbags.
