    Default Life-jacket Manual Conversion query

    Hi All,
    I have a Crewsaver Crewfit 165N Sport automatic life-jacket, which as far as I can make out has the identical automatic UML-5 firing mechanism to the Spinlock DeskVest Lite. The latter has available an easily reversible manual conversion 'kit' (essentially, it's a plastic bottle top, with a green reminder tag for about 9!).
    There is no equivalent kit marketed for my Crewsaver, but surely the spinlock kit would work exactly as designed? Or any blank with a proper seal? Obviously, bearing in mind the subject matter, I'm not going to simply try it, but I have searched the net and spoken to numerous chandleries, none of whom have apparently ever come across anybody trying this.
    All thoughts welcome, but please note that this is a specific query, and suggested workarounds are not what I'm after. I'm thinking of wasting a couple of re-arm kits to test it, but thought that I'd try here first. The life-jacket is so comfortable, which is why I don't want to change to the spinlock. Thanks.

    Sorry for wasting everybody's time - the cap on its own is available from United Moulders, independent of manufacturer of lifejacket.
