Can I leave my Tiswim progressive armbands in the sun?

Like any synthetic material, the progressive armbands deteriorate upon prolonged exposure to sunlight. The heat generated weakens the welds and seams of the product by softening its composition. The colours can also deteriorate due to ultraviolet rays.

Store your armbands in a well-ventilated place, away from direct sunlight.

Why is my child leaning backwards?

If your child is leaning backwards it is because the inflation of the front section is not suited to their size. Tiswim progressive armbands are designed for children between 15 and 30 kg for safety reasons. Be sure to respect these standards to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

It is important to remember that to be able to use the progressive armbands, your child's motor skills and muscle tone must be sufficiently developed so that they can keep their balance and keep their head up on land.

However, if your child is still leaning backwards, do not hesitate to adjust the inflation of the front section to their size and to encourage them to lean on this part, so that they can regain their balance.

What are the 3 Tiswim learning stages?

The progressive armbands are designed to accompany your child from their discovery of the water to their first swimming movements.

To achieve this, it offers a first stage of aquatic discovery. Your child will be wearing the complete product, i.e. armbands and the belt in the front position. Well supported, they can then gain confidence by moving in the water by your side.

The second stage, with the armbands alone, allows your child to get their bearings in the water by giving them greater freedom of movement but allowing them to easily keep their head out of the water.

Finally, with the belt alone in the back position, for the third stage, will help your child to discover the horizontal position in the water and to work on their kicks or breaststroke movements.

Why are the armbands deflating?

All our armbands feature a one-way valve. If, however, you find that your product is deflating during use, make sure that the plugs are tightly closed and that the one-way valve is not deformed.

To check this, pinch the entire valve several times by pressing with your fingers before the first inflation. Then inflate the product as much as possible to flatten the valve flap.

If the product is still losing air, do not hesitate to bring it back to the store, our products are guaranteed two years.

Can my child fall forward?

No, if the armbands are properly fitted, your child will not be able to fall forward. Tiswim progressive armbands are designed for children between 15 and 30 kg for safety reasons. Be sure to respect these standards to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

It is important to remember that to be able to use the progressive armbands, your child's motor skills and muscle tone must be sufficiently developed so that they can keep their balance and keep their head up on land.

However, if your child is very active and is on the lower side of our recommendations (15-20 kg), adjust the inflation of the front section to your child's size so that they are a little more submerged at chest level.

Where should I position the belt in the front position?

On the stomach. Be careful not to position the belt on your child's chest, this would make it too high and poorly supported. Place it in a low position so that the buoyant part is pressed against the lower part of their chest.

How can I adjust the inflation of the front section to my child?

As each person is different, it is possible to adjust the inflation of the front section of the Tiswim to suit your child's body shape.

First, tighten the belt directly on your child without having inflated the front section, so that it is perfectly adjusted to your child's size. Then inflate the front section while your child is wearing the belt.

How can I prevent the armbands from rubbing?

Depending on your child's activity level and duration of sessions in the water, personal buoyancy aids can cause chafing. To prevent this discomfort, we recommend wearing a rash vest underneath the Tiswim progressive armbands.

How can I adjust the belt in the front position?

In the first stage, the belt should be fastened before inflating the front section in order to adjust it to the child's body shape. Place the front section on the lower part of the chest, so that the belt wraps around the upper part of the child's belly. Tighten normally, then inflate the front section directly on the child, without over-inflating it. The belt will then be perfectly suited to your child's size.

How can I adjust the belt in the back position?

In the third stage, your child can discover the horizontal position in the water with the belt in the back position. To do this, inflate the back section, without over-inflating it, then position the belt around your child's waist and tighten normally. Be sure to position the protective tabs under the straps to make them more comfortable.

Why does the belt go up to my child's chin when I place it in the front position?

In most cases this is because the front section is too inflated or the belt poorly positioned.

Be sure to position the belt under your child's chest and adjust the inflation of the front section to their size.

Also, Tiswim progressive armbands are designed for children between 15 and 30 kg for safety reasons. Be sure to respect these standards to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

How much should I inflate the different parts of the Tiswim?

The different learning stages have slightly different inflation requirements.

The armbands are always inflated to the maximum. However, you should ideally inflate the second chamber directly on your child's arm.

The inflation of the belt in the front position should be adjusted to the size of your child, especially if they are in the 15-20 kg category. Inflate it directly on your child to make sure it fits perfectly.

The belt in the back position should be inflated normally, without over-inflating, before being put in position.

Can my child jump in the water wearing the Tiswim?

Yes, but be careful! If the set is properly fitted, your child can jump in the water without it rubbing under their chin or arms. But beware of the height; the armbands are a buoyancy aid, do not try to jump from a height higher than that of the water level. If the entire product is worn and your child is jumping into the water without a care, try removing the front section to give them more freedom of movement.

Can my child wear the Tiswim progressive armbands if they weigh less than 15 kg?

No, Tiswim progressive armbands are designed for children between 15 and 30 kg for safety reasons. Below this, the armbands would be too bulky to allow the child to move comfortably. They would no longer be able to control their movements and as a result could tip backwards or forwards without being able to get back up. Be sure to respect these standards to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
