The LPU-10/P consists of two neoprene coated fabric flotation cells, each packed into a flat envelope-type container. This life preserver incorporates an inflator with a cell-venting capability that eliminates the need for a breathing clip. The inflator lever locks in the up position and the valve stem is short and does not have valve cores. The removal of the valve core allows venting of the cell until the inflator is actuated. The oral tube valve pocket is also eliminated from the cell container on this assembly. The LPU-10/P has no provision for the installation of accessories or survival equipment. US MIL. SPEC.# MIL-L-38484

Function

The LPU-10/P is inflated by pulling downward and slightly outward on the lanyards that extend from the lower front corner of each container. If a failure occurs, the life preserver may be orally inflated. The user must insure the inflator lever is locked in the full open position. if not in this position, cells can leak through the inflator vents. No attempt should be made to close these levers after actuation. After inflation, connect the cells with the adjustable hook and pile tape connectors provided with the assembly.
