Submersion Test: Prior to each use, check for proper seal. First make sure the Load N Lock Waterproof Pouch interior is completely dry. Seal the pouch placing a piece of paper with as much air as possible inside, and lock the clamp. Submerge the pouch and wait for 5 seconds for air to escape from clamp. Squeeze pouch to see if bubbles escape. Inspect paper closed inside for water spots.
Float Test: To ensure that your Load N Lock Waterproof Pouch will float with the objects you are storing inside; simply load it while allowing as much air as possible to remain inside, seal clamp,and drop it into the water while holding on to the neck strap. Submerge the pouch and let go. It should quickly rise to the surface and float.
