    Post Vehicle Airbags

    Does anyone know where I can get a video that illustrates the explosive force of a vehicle's airbag? I'd also like the video to discuss how to treat an airbag that has not deployed inside a vehicle. Thanks in advance!

    The American Coalition for Traffic Safety has a great video that I've used in conjunction with the Air Bag Class I teach for years. There are two versions, the first from 1991 is dated but does explain the mechanics of SIR better.

    The newest version features all the newest technologies, side bags, curtains, etc but is a little drawn out and long.

    I still use the first one to teach the system and close with parts of the newer one to show all the new problems we can encounter.

    Contact Tom Wehr at Wehr Eng. , the maker of the GlasMaster Tool. 1.800.457.GLAS. He has an excellent video of about 5 minutes that clearly demonstrates airbag power. One of the best available.
