We have a Mustang MD3184 inflatable PFD
. This model has 2 zipper sliders that zip the PFD
closed, but the zipper is designed to tear open on inflation. We had an auto inflate event when cleaning
the PFD (don't ask), and one of the zipper sliders is now missing. It is a YKK #5H. I tried a regular #5 but it won't go on as it has to back over the coil zipper teeth. Mustang says they can fix it with the correct slider for 12.50 plus 35.00 to inspect the PFD. They won't send me the part. This I don't really mind but we are cruising so it is very inconvenient to send it off, wait, and find some place to receive the return shipment.
Anyone run into this issue with Mustang inflatables or know a source for this 5H slider?
