Used Air Bag Cover (Air Bag)

Auto Parts Search

An Air bag cover consists of a bag that is a flexible membrane or envelope. It is designed to inflate on collision to contain air or some other gas and prevent the driver or passenger from being thrown forward.

The concept of an air bag cover is simple. An accelerometer triggers a gas propellant to inflate the air bag cover very rapidly. This reduces the sudden impact experienced by the passenger as they come to a stop in a crash situation. When the occupant pushes against the bag, small holes allow the gas to be slowly expelled from the bag.

Statistics indicate that the passengers in cars with airbag covers have less chances of dying in an accident than in cars without air bag covers fitted.

In spite of its benefits, used air bag covers have at times flirted with controversy. The expansion of the air bag cover is in itself a violent event. If the occupant is too close to the airbag when it is initially triggered, they can be seriously injured. This was partly due to the fact that the air bag covers used were designed to protect passengers not wearing seat belts. Air bag covers are now designed to trigger less violently. However, occupants must be at least 25 centimeters (10 in.) from the bag to prevent injury from the bag in a crash.

You may purchase used air bag covers too. They consist of three basic parts –an air bag module, crash sensors and a diagnostic unit. Some systems may also have an on/off switch that allows the air bag to be deactivated. Most air bags covers are automatically deployed in the event of a vehicle fire when temperatures reach 30 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (150 to 200? C).

Avoid smoking a pipe in a seat protected with an airbag cover. Used air bag cover could hit the pipe while it is in the mouth and the consequences could be deadly.

Initially designed to replace seat belts, air bag covers are now designed and sold as supplements. Used air bag covers show best results when the occupant is also using a seat belt. Air bag covers supplement the safety belt by reducing the chance that the occupant’s head and upper body will strike some part of the cars interior. Air bag covers also reduce the risk of serious injuries by distributing crash forces more evenly across the occupant’s body.


Moving seat to the rear results in much more effective use of the air bag cover. The adjustment will certainly not interfere with the braking pedals. If the steering wheel is adjustable, tilt it downward. This points the air bag toward the chest instead of head and neck. One can order them either online or offline.
