54 | ASP October 2017 Circle 120 on Reader Service Card Technical General airbag handling When carrying a live (un-deployed) airbag module, point the deployment surface AWAY from your body. When storing the module on a bench or other surface, be sure to place the module with the deployment surface facing upwards, not facing the bench or floor surface. If the module accidentally deploys, Note the warning tag on this airbag. "This assem- bly contains an explosive initiator." They're not kidding around. Airbag deployment is violent. Note the gold-plated airbag initiator connector pins. The use of a precious metal ensures a reli- able connection that is less prone to corrosion.
