In the case of such a defect, we will either repair or replace the goods concerned but such obligation to repair or replace is the limit of our liability under this warranty.

The Warranty Period will be 5 years from date of purchase in respect of hardware and 2 years from date of purchase of deckware provided that in the case of the ‘Deckvest’ product the 2 year period can be extended to 5 years by registering the purchase of the ‘Deckvest ‘product on this website within 30 days of purchase. [Click here to register your Deckvest] These warranty periods are reduced to 1 year from date of purchase for any goods used (i) in  professional or semi-professional racing applications, (ii) for military purposes or (iii) outside of leisure sailing.

EPIRB-PLB and AIS devices have decreased in size and price over recent years, making them increasingly popular within the commercial marine industry. On certain vessels AIS is mandatory. 

Spinlock Deckvest 5D lifejackets feature a mesh pocket on the outside cover which can be used to hold a EPIRB-PLB or AIS device. The 2014 model (available from late February 2014) of the Deckvest 5D features attachment points for the new Chest Pack, specifically designed for keeping essentials such as a EPIRB-PLB or AIS close to hand. As well as the Chest Pack, the new Essentials Pack range includes the Belt Pack and Side Pack, which can be attached to the belt of any Deckvest or other manufacturer's lifejackets.

A number of AIS devices are marketed as being able to integrate into a lifejacket, with some automatically activated by the lifejacket inflating.*   The Kannad R10 AIS device has been tested to integrate with a Deckvest lifejacket and Kannad have published a document on their own website detailing fitting of a Kannad R10 AIS device into a Deckvest lifejacket. This document can be downloaded from the link below.

*Please note that the integration of an EPIRB-PLB or AIS device with a Deckvest lifejacket is at the owner's liability. Spinlock accept no responsibility for the performance of any EPIRP-PLB or AIS fitted into a Deckvest lifejacket or for any damage caused to the Deckvest lifejacket as a result of having fitted an EPIRB-PLB or AIS unit to a Deckvest.

Hardware FAQs

I have changed my halyard and now my clutches won't hold the new rope

The greater the line diameter, the greater the load holding. If you have reduced the rope diameter then you may need to consider either a rope core insert or sleeved cover to increase diameter in the clutching area. Your rigger will be able to arrange this. When rope is produced some lubricants are used in the manufacture, which can often effect rope holding performance. These lubricants can be washed out of the rope in the clutching area and once removed performance should improve. Check also the clutch or jammer is free of dirt and debris and parts not showing signs of wear.

Can you convert a single unit clutch to a double or triple unit?

It is not possible to convert clutches into different configurations

What lubrication should I use on my clutches?

Spinlock recommend using fresh water to remove dirt and debris from your rope holding products. Remove ropes and flush with as much water as possible. On XAS, XTS and XCS clutches a light grease can be used on the handle bearing to keep a smooth action. ZS Jammers as well as benefiting from plenty of water flushing also require a light grease on the upper and lower bearing surfaces. With all Spinlock rope holding products, routine maintenance will help give consistent rope holding.  

Why do you recommend Silicone sealant as opposed to polyurethane or polysulphide?

Pure silicone is recommended for mounting clutches and Jammers to seal fastener holes against water ingress. Polyurethane and polysulphide as well as being an adhesive can also damage plastic parts they come into contact with.

Will RP25 rope coating improve my rope holding performance?

RP25 rope coating helps improve the interaction of the rope cover and rope core, which will in turn offer better rope holding performance in clutches and jammers.

Can I use 6mm line in a PXR0810?

6mm line can be used in the PXR0810, but like in all rope holding products, best load holding performance is achieved the greater the diameter of the line.

Do newer model clutches use the same drill template as older models?

Most newer model spinlock clutches use the same drill template as older models that they are updating, but customers should always check by downloading the latest drill template from the website. 

What is the difference between a clutch and a jammer?

Clutches allow the line to be released by opening the handle and the handle can be opened under load. Spinlock recommend taking the load safely on a winch, even when using a clutch. With a jammer the load will always end to be taken safely on a winch before the jammer handles can be opened and rope released. 

Spinlock is an independent and innovative company, widely acknowledged as the world expert in ropeholding. Based in Cowes, UK, the 'Home of Yachting', Spinlock has over thirty years experience of designing and manufacturing rope holding equipment for sailing boats, from dinghies up to the largest superyachts.

Spinlock’s cleats, clutches and jammers hold ropes from 2mm to 32mm in diameter and loads up to 12,000kg. The expert skills of our Special Projects Team are valued by America’s Cup, Volvo Ocean Race and other leading racing teams, Open 60’s and superyacht captains for the originality of their custom rope handling solutions.

Spinlock's Deckware Series includes the award winning Deckvest - the world leading lifejacket harness. Where there had been no significant technical or aesthetic change for over thirty years Spinlock developed a completely new and personal lifejacket harness solution that was attractive and comfortable to wear. Active campaigning by Spinlock about the Deckvest and the importance of wearing your own lifejacket harness has helped encourage a much more positive attitude towards sea safety. Power or sail, amateur, professional or commercial, wearing a well-fitting personal lifejacket has now become the norm.

Since 2010 we have been proud to supply special Deckvest versions to the International Certified Instructors of the highly regarded Royal Yachting Association. Other personal protection equipment widely used at top races and regattas are Spinlock Performance Safety Lines, Mast Pro Harness, ZERO Buoyancy Aid and the award winning lightweight lifejacket, the Deckvest LITE.

Spinlock are proud to support a number of charities and organisations. The focus of our charitable support is in areas aligned to our business and our employees.

Involvement in the Community: In the areas where we are based, we encourage partnerships with local community organisations, schools and colleges to support numerous projects. Employees are encouraged to be involved in their local communities, through volunteering or fundraising and to make use of the company's payroll giving facility.

At Spinlock, we recognise that the benefits are mutual; employees are proud of helping to improve and support communities, which in turn helps them to develop their own skills and experience. We have employees who are local school Governors, board members for local nurseries, who help run local sporting clubs and who give talks and demonstrations for schools and local groups.

During 2011 we launched our Employee Charity Panel to encourage and support more staff to get involved with their community. Employees can apply for funding (monetary, product or time) to support any charity or community initiative they are personally involved with. These applications are reviewed by the Panel who meet half yearly to allocate funds to the charities who they think will benefit the most.

Commercial Deckware FAQs


My Deckvest label states 150N buoyancy, yet the packaging states 170N?

The Deckvest is tested to a standard of 150N - the minimum buoyancy of the category - and we are required state this on the label. The Deckvest has an actual buoyancy of 170N.


Should I buy a 170N or a  275N Deckvest?

170N is the standard buoyancy. It is a comfortable, a wearable size that is not too intrusive and it provides significant buoyancy when in the water.

The 275N provides significantly more buoyancy so is suitable for larger people and situations where additional weight might be carried, i.e. tools, steel toecap boots, etc. 

Remember additional buoyancy and size is not always an advantage as it is heavier to wear and harder to use in the water, i.e. if entering a liferaft, etc.

The Deckvest SOLAS is a 275N Twin Chamber lifejacket with 2 Pro Sensor operating systems.

Many industries specify their own standards and requirements for inflatable lifejackets. Contact Pro Support for guidance. 


What size Deckvest should I buy? Size 1, 2 or 3

The Deckvest is available in 3 sizes. See the lifejacket product pages for size guides. The size 2 Deckvest will fit the majority of customers – around 85 % of our Deckvest sales are a Size 2.

The Deckvest sizes 1, 2 and 3 are different sizes of belt and fit, the bladder size and buoyancy is not different. 


How  do you to fit the thigh straps or order replacements

There are fitting videos in the video section of the site and replacements can be ordered through Spinlock, contact Pro Support.


Choosing between the Hammar Hydrostatic or UML Pro Sensor inflation system

Both inflation systems are very effective but are suitable for different situations. In general, the Hammar system is better suited to very wet conditions as it relies on water pressure to activate.

The UML system is easier to service and parts are more readily available around the world. They are also very resistant to wet conditions - check out the “How Water Sensitive is a Deckvest Pro Sensor 170N Lifejacket?" video.

For more inflation system information see Lifejacket Inflation Systems Explained


Can I convert my UML Pro Sensor inflation system to Hammar Hydrostatic inflation and vice versa?

No. Unfortunately you cannot do this because they are very different units.


Which re-arming kit do I need, and how do I fit it?

The product pages specify the part number of the re-arming kit that you will need for you Deckvest lifejacket. The UML re-arming kit fits both the Deckvest 5D Pro Sensor and Deckvest LITE lifejackets. Instructions for fitting can be found on the product packaging and in the Spinlock videos.


My Deckvest is uncomfortable

Correctly fitting and adjusting your Deckvest is key to its comfort - see the Spinlock videos to ensure you have it correctly fitted.


Servicing:  Where, How, When?

The Deckvest is designed to be easily check and maintained by yourself. Follow the videos online for basic and more detailed checks. 

We recommend that you check your Deckvest operating system regularly if you are wearing it frequently. 

As a commercial customer please contact us for advice on lifejacket servicing, your own industry may have it's own set of guidelines. We recommend commercial lifejackets should be serviced annually in line with the MCA guidelines.


Can the bladder be repaired or replaced?

We do not recommend that a punctured bladder is repaired. However, if your Deckvest has the “button in” attachment on the lifejacket then we can supply a replacement bladder for you to fit. 


I’ve broken my zip, can it be fixed?

The zips on the Deckvest are plastic to ensure they do not corrode. However, they can break if they are snagged or forced. It is possible to replace the slides. Please contact us for spares and instructions.


The elastics on my Mast Pro Harness have worn out.

Non-skid decks and salt water can take a toll on elastics. Replacement leg strap elastics are available here.


Can I fly with my Deckvest?

Although it is often raised as an issue at check in, International IATA regulations state that you can fly with two lifejackets and two re-arming kits as long as they are declared at check in. See Flying with your Deckvest for more information and to download our document to show your airline.


When does the Warranty period start and what is covered.

The 5 year (if registered with TLS) warranty period starts from when you purchase the Deckvest. See Warranty for more details.


Is the Deckvest 5D or Deckvest LITE SOLAS approved?

No – SOLAS is a commercial standard for abandonment lifejackets. The Deckvest is tested to the International ISO 12402 standard that covers wearable lifejacketsThe new Deckvest SOLAS Lifejacket is available Spring 2015.


Manufacturing Dates

There are several dates printed on the Deckvest. The date on the inside label shows which quarter of which year the lifejacket was completed. Harnesses are often made in large batches earlier whilst firing caps are added at a later date than this to ensure that they reach the stores with the maximum lifetime on them.

Spinlock Deckvest lifejackets use a range of inflation systems.

Deckvest 5D

The Deckvest 5D lifejacket harness is available with either UML Pro Sensor (water activated) or Hammar Hydrostatic (pressure activated)

Deckvest LITE

The Deckvest LITE lifejacket uses a water activated UML Mk5 paper coil inflation system. 

The USCG Approved Deckvest LITE (available to purchase in US only) uses the water activated Halkey Roberts Alpha Auto Inflator.

Deckvest CENTO 

The Deckvest CENTO junior lifejacket harness uses a water activated UML Mk5 paper coil inflation system.

Deckvest SOLAS

The Deckvest SOLAS 275 twin chamber lifejacket uses two UML Mk5 paper coil inflation systems.


Lifejacket Inflation Systems Explained

UML Mk5 Inflator 

This is a water sensitive activation system that uses a compressed paper capsule which dissolves when wet which then releases a spring to puncture the CO2 cylinder.

The cap is designed so that only water flowing upwards through the unit will cause it to activate. Water, spray and rain running down the jacket will not cause activation. 

Mk5 operating system


UML Pro Sensor Inflator 

This is a water sensitive activation system that uses a compressed paper capsule which dissolves when wet which then releases a spring to puncture the CO2 cylinder.

The cap is designed so that only water flowing upwards through the unit will cause it to activate. Water, spray and rain running down the jacket will not cause activation.

The Pro Sensor has two indicators that show the status of the CO2 cylinder and firing head.

The UML Pro Sensor is a very reliable system which is easy to check and re-arm. It is also easy to convert to manual firing only. Re-arming kits for this inflation system are stocked by most marine stores.

3 year expiry date on firing head.

Pro sensor operating system


Hammar Hydrostatic Inflator

The Hammar inflation system is activated by water pressure and will not inflate until the cap is approximately 10cm underwater. 

This system is designed for use in more extreme conditions and extended offshore sailing.

The benefit of the Hammar system is that the jacket cannot accidently inflate from being wet with rain and sea spray.

The unit has a single indicator to show if armed, and has a 5 year expiry date.

Delayed inflation can be caused if full immersion of the firing head is delayed by buoyant foul weather clothing.

Hammar operating system


USCG APPROVED

Halkey Roberts Alpha Auto Inflator

The USCG Approved Deckvest LITE uses a water activated Halkey Roberts Alpha Auto Inflator that is is designed so that only water flowing upwards through the unit will cause it to activate. Water, spray and rain running down the jacket will not cause activation.

The marine environment is very harsh on soft materials and your Deckvest lifejacket will last for much longer if cared for. 

Simple care involves wiping with a damp sponge to remove salt and dirt before drying in an aired room. More detailed care can be undertaken following some simple steps which are detailed in the instruction book.

You will find a range of videos on inspecting and caring for your Deckvest on the Spinlock YouTube channel.

Clutches and jammers have always been a simple and cost effective rope holding solution when compared to a winch and, more recently, halyard locks.  

Halyard locks, and the benefits in reducing mast compression, are a key component of many competitive boats and are now being more widely used on large performance cruising boats.  A halyard lock is the equivalent of a traditional mainsail tack pin, just at the top of the mast. However, the use of a lock does require you to hold and adjust the full sailing load at deck level, using a clutch or jammer.  With the advent of new sail designs, especially downwind sails, with most requiring extremely high luff loads, clutches and jammers are now being worked harder by another corner of the sail, namely the tack.  Locks are not suited to tack applications because with mast rake changes, different types of sail carried and trimming requirements, infinite adjustment is often required. Using a clutch or jammer, these adjustments can be controlled in the normal way at deck level. 

On a number of recent high performance multihulls (including the AC45's) the downwind sails are permanently attached to the bow furler, because its not practical to go out onto the bowsprit during a race.  In cases like these,  jammers have been used at the mast head to provide a variable locking position and are operated remotely from the deck on a trip line, just like a lock.  This approach is working for a number of larger yachts were it is notoriously difficult to dimensionally control and set a sail between two points over forty metres apart and even harder to get the inboard reefs to fit.

Remote operation of clutches and jammers is now common on board many performance yachts.  The first boats to embrace remote operation were the IMOCA 60's for end of boom reef jammers and tack line jammers mounted on the bow.  More recently the focus on aerodynamic efficiency of deck layouts has forced designers to run sheets and halyards underdeck when possible.  The TP class has led the way with remotely operated under deck spinnaker sheet clutches and pit clutches buried in the coach roof.  Mini Maxi designs are following suit by utilising side mount, bonded, remote operation XXC ceramic and titanium clutches and ZS jammers.  

With the holding capacity of clutches almost doubling over the past 5 years, many applications can now be held with the convenience of a handle operated unit rather than a winch release jammer. This has been particularly helpful for use on tack lines for spinnaker drops were the tack release is critical for a fast and safe drop, whether by hand or winch driven.  Larger and offshore yachts carefully consider the properties of the load holding equipment they require and often reduce the load holding required with a purchase, therefore allowing a particular clutch or jammer to be used.  The very latest Volvo Ocean Race 65 has been careful planned between sailors, running rigging experts and the designer, resulting in cost effective and 100% race proven solutions which work for both inshore and offshore with the removal of a single purchase. 

The Spinlock high load product range, especially rope holding equipment, has developed rapidly in the last few years providing lighter, stronger and more adaptable products, without the need of expensive customisation, all with ever increasing load holding capacity.
