Stop Use and Inspection Notice issued for 3M fall protection equipment

 

3M issued a Stop Use and Inspection Notice for specific versions of the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Nano-Lok™ Self Retracting Lifeline with Anchor Hook due to the potential for the equipment to be assembled with an unformed top swivel eye rivet, which may become displaced from the top swivel eye and could result in severe injury or death.
