I just purchased and received this BCD. The trim pockets look like they're upside down. The openings points down. I put a soft weight in each trim pocket, closed the clasp and when I turned the BDC upright, both weights fell out. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
Cindy, the trim weights are actually hard to get into the pockets, you need to unclip, then push the weights into the cavity, and around the flap (which is hard to see) and into the pocket itself. Then clip the cover, I think you are trying to insert the weights just into the cover, that wont work. Hope this helps.
Generally the weight pocket release system is quite fool proof> The zipper which hold the weights in the pockets goes in to the retainer first and the clip with the red safety pull secures the assembly. The good news you purchased the BC from Leisure Pro.......They will help you out!!!
OMG!!!!! Seriously??????? Forget it, please just forget I asked.
Look at your trim pockets notice the black male clip. This fits into a corresponding female clip on the outside edge of the pocket of the BC. It must CLICK in.
People, I'm NOT asking about the integrated weight pockets. I'm not a new diver, this is my 3rd weight-integrated BCD.
I asked about the TRIM pockets that are in the back, under the bladder, toward the bottom of the BCD.
My only suggestion is to ensure that when you put the weight pockets back in, that you make sure they are fully in (they should make an audible click into the clasp inside the pocket). If you don't hear this, they'll probably fall out. Sometimes when my pockets are full, it can be difficult (have to shove them in a bit). Hope this helps!
The pockets are at the top with the zipper and the inserts are where you put your weights where the red handle is. You can also put your weight behind the bcd so that when your in the water surface it will balance the weight from tipping forward. As the trim being upside down I'm not sure what your talking about.
I asked about the trim pockets, not the weight pockets. Never mind, I'll figure it out. Thanks.
"the pocket is at the top with the zipper" if its zipped up nothing should come out of the pockets. By the way I got it for the wife and she loves it. Enjoy your new bcd!
Trim pockets are in the back toward the bottom of the BCD, under the bladder, there is no zipper. Good to hear your wife loves it. I'll figure out the trim pockets.
Oh yea. There is a pocket on the back of your bcd where you put your weight then make sure you clip it so that your weight won't fall off.
