Most of car owners don't care about safety.Please don't ignore safety.Airbag is dangerous to be carried carelessly or kept anywhere. Preserve it in safe place.

Please follow this basic safety rule:

  • When carrying a live air bag, make sure the bag and trim cover are pointed away from the body. 
  • In the unlikely event of an accidental deployment, the bag will then deploy with minimal chance of injury. 
  • When placing a live air bag on a bench or other surface make sure you always face the bag and trim cover up, away from the surface. 
This will reduce the motion of the module if  in case it is accidentally deployed.
