Re-arming Manual PFD Belt - how it punctures the cartridge

Recommended Posts

I about drown myself wading in the Laguna Madre a couple weeks ago.  To avoid that again, I bought inflatable life belts.  They are not armed yet.  I like knowing how things work so asking does the belt arm when I screw the Co2 cartridge in by puncturing the thin metal on the head of the cartridge?  If I unscrew, it will exhaust the cartridge?  In my belt, the pull mechanism does NOT seem to puncture but maybe just open a valve to inflate the belt.  Is that all correct?  Thanks
