Zephyr Vest - Socket Block to Center Spar Issue

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! 

I'm having a little issue with my Zephyr vest, the pin that pops in and out of the holes from the socket block to the center spar has come off my vest. I’ve attached photos, let me know if this is something that could be fixed by myself or if I need to bring my vest in. The knob that tightens the socket block to the center spar still works, so I should be good to go in the mean time.

Update: Took the vest to Tiffen in Burbank and they replaced the pin. They told me I could fly without the pin as the nut that tightens the socket block to the center spar is what counts on the Zephyr vest. 

They also tightened the 6 bolts in the picture above to make the socket block hold tighter on the center spar. 

Hope this helps anyone in the future!!!
