The first step is to carefully deploy the reserve and make sure everything works as it should:

  • Do the pins release easily?

  • Does the reserve come out without needing too much force?

  • Are the bridle and lines long enough to allow a good swing without the mouthlock releasing?

  • Do the lines slip out of the mouthlock easily?

  • Does the deployment bag fall off readily?

If we encounter difficulty at any stage, we fix it
