Assembling The Gas Mask

Attaching The Canister Or Filter

The design of the gas mask allows the use with a single canister or filter on either the right side or the left side of the facepiece. Remove plug and cap from canister or filter. Place canister or filter onto the preferred canister or filter receptacle. Hand-tighten by turning clockwise to ensure a good seal against the facepiece.

The unused receptacle must be sealed off by a Respirator Plug. Seal the respirator plug onto the facepiece by turning the respirator plug clockwise onto the receptacle until it stops.

  • 1. Arrange hair including facial hair so it cannot interfere with an effective seal.

    2.  Remove the clear thin protective film from the outside of the visor. 

  • 3. Loosen the adjustable straps so the end tabs are at the buckles.

  • 4. Insert chin well into the lower part of facepiece, then pull the harness back over head.Make sure the nose cup is covering your nose and mouth and the outer face seal fits under your chin.

  • 5. Pull the back of the harness downward toward the neck until it is centered at the back of your head. If necessary, hold the canister or filter with one hand and position the harness with the other hand, until obtaining a firm and comfortable fit against the face at all points.

  • 6. Tighten the adjustable straps by pulling the tabs, so that the facepiece is snug against face. Start with the middle straps, then the top straps and finally, the bottom straps. Ensure the harness remains centered on the back of the head with the straps flat against the head.

  • 7. If the facepiece does not feel snug against face, loosen the adjustable straps and reposition the back of the harness and nose-cup & retighten as in step 5.
