Pro-gard's AOI Airbag on/off Switches can provide safety and peace of mind for the vehicle operator or passengers from propelled equipment in the event of a crash. Mounted equipment in an airbag deployment zone puts vehicle occupants at risk. The switch can eliminate the possibility of aftermarket equipment, located in the airbag's deployment zone, from being forced into the direction of the seat's occupant, in the event of an impact. Controlling airbag deployment also protects expensive equipment from destruction while freeing up space for extra mounted equipment.
Pro-gard's AOI Airbag On/off Switches also can provide passengers seated in the airbag delployment zone with a sense of security that they will not be injured by the forceful deployment of the airbag. NHTSA provides for the deactivation of airbags for passengers who meet certain height or medical requirements that may put them at an increased risk from airbag deployment.

All of Pro-gard/AOI airbag On/off switch products not only meet but, exceed NHTSA requirements. While the NHTSA required, activation light comes standard on each switch, a remote airbag status light is also available when mounting applications make the switch non-visible to the driver. Each switch comes with a one year limited warranty and free replacement should your vehicle be in an accident.
Law Enforcement Applications
All of Pro-gard's AOI Airbag On/off Switches are compliant with all factory authorized police vehicles. A simple key turn shuts the airbag off to protect expensive computer and video equipment in the event of an impact. Another simple key turn will turn the airbag on again to allow for airbag protection to the occupant in that seat. Each switch contains an internally sealed liability fuse that guarantees the position of the switch, at the time of an impact, offering the same level of protection as a factory installed airbag switch.
All Pro-gard/AOI Airbag Switch products meet or exceed federal requirements for use. Please visit www.nhtsa.dot.gov for more information about federal requirements in the United States or www.tc.gc.ca in Canada.
