Coyote Design’s Lightweight, Airtight, Water-Resistant Pin Locks
December 18, 2014
The Air-Lock and Small Air-Lock dual suspension pin systems are designed to combine suction suspension comfort with pin suspension safety and security. The airtight seal of the Air-Lock prevents air from entering the bottom of the socket by creating negative pressure inside the socket (suction), which reduces pistoning even without a sleeve. The Easy-Off Lock, similar to the Air-Lock, stays airtight, creates suction in the socket, and can also work with elevated vacuum mechanisms. Its patent pending lever design makes doffing easy for amputees with hand strength issues.
