    Cut the straps too so people don't get tempted to use it

    10 years. I heard that that is when they need to be ousted. To look at it is fine and still in great condition with a relatively new liner. No dings or frays. Might still pass the liner on though.

    They don't have expiry dates printed on them, just manufacture dates and 10yr is the recommended lifespan. Best way to dispose is to cut straps and tether and destroy the shell, cut in half, dint, whatever so that tip grabbers can't resell it.

    Thank you - might give it a royal beating and take it for it's last trip this weekend when DH is home as I'm not familiar with the tip.
