Each TFSS-5326 system consists of one each independent left and right hand units, which can be mounted on a belt. Each unit includes a welded flotation bladder, an inflation system, a pouch closure system, a pouch, and a firing handle. The bladder is a reusable welded fabric enclosure that deploys under the arm and is readily collapsed and stowed for future use. The inflation system utilizes a manually actuated CO2 cartridge for primary inflation and an oral inflation tube for secondary inflation. The TFSS-5326 pouch uses a unique Grommet, Loop, and Pin (GLP) closure system design that combines positive closure of the pouch with space efficient packing. This method prevents accidental pouch opening and allows for the smallest unit size when fully packed (approx 6. 5″ x 2. 75″ x 2. 25″). A durable cordura flap to further protect against damage and inadvertent actuation covers the entire closure mechanism. The TFSS-5326 pouch contains and protects the bladder, inflation system, and closure system. It includes a waist belt loop and clip loops to secure the pouch to the webbing belt. The firing handle attaches to the outside of the pouch and uses color-coded beads to help distinguish left and right hand units. The handle serves to release the closure system and actuate the CO2 inflation system. To manually actuate a TFSS-5326 unit, the user pulls upward on the firing handle. This motion initiates two sequential actions. First, the pouch closure pins are released, allowing the pouches to open freely. Second, the manual inflator lever is actuated, causing the firing pin to puncture the seal on the CO2 cartridges to release the gas and completely fill the bladder. Should the CO2 inflation system fail to operate, the bladder is filled through an oral inflation tube. This is accomplished by depressing the Oralock valve, then breathing into the tube Gas is released from the TFSS-5326 bladder by pressing downward on the Oralock valve and forcing the air out the oral inflation tube. Once all of the gas is evacuated from the bladder, the CO2 cartridges are replaced, maintenance is performed, and the units are repacked for future use.

Tactical Flotation Support System (TFSS)
PAIR PCI TFSS-5326 OD GREEN KIDNEY BEANTS
You are looking at a set of PECI TFSS-5326 Tactical Flotation System. These kidney beans were paired from two separete lots, as you can tell by the discoloring difference between the two. The system, known as "Kidney Beans" by many units that use them. It attaches to a belt and serves as personal flotation in a pinch should you ever need it. Also included in this auction is a pair of CO2 Cartridges. Great piece of kit, please see pictures for more information. Here are the specifications:
The system consists of a right and left unit independent of each other. Each unit includes a OD Green (Covert) in color, reusable welded flotation bladder made of 200-denier nylon, a OD Green pouch, an inflation system, a pouch closure system, and a firing handle.
Inflation system actuated with two Leland 38 gram CO2 filled cartridges P/N 86121Z 2W134 (cartridge available separately) or through an oral inflation tube.
SIZE & DETAIL
Specially designed Grommet, Loop, and Pin (GLP) closure system prevents accidental deployment as well as compacts the pouch to a fully packed size of 6.5" x 2.75" x 2.25". System designed as a "One Size Fits All" system.
System designed to provide a minimum of 45 lbs of positive buoyancy in seawater at 33 ft and 80 lbs at the surface. The overt system comes with reflective tape on the yellow colored bladder to aid in recovery in sea operations.
