7. Product Safety Advisory 12/15/1996
RECALL NOTICE ALL METOLIUS 3-D HARNESS OWNERS PLEASE READ
PROBLEM We made some harnesses with 3-D leg loop buckles that had sharp edges. New, the harness will pass all of the strength tests. But, over time, this sharp edge may cause the leg loop webbing to cut or fray. So far we have seen six harnesses with fraying.
WHICH HARNESSES ARE AFFECTED All 3-D 550, 650, 750 and Alpine made prior to April 1996, The month of manufacture corresponds to the number written in the inspected box on the harness danger warning label.
WHAT TO DO Send it back to us. We will round out the edges of the leg loop buckles, replace any frayed webbing and return it to you (one day service). If your harness has already been fixed (this is quite possible), close inspection of the underside of the leg loop buckle will reveal a thin line of bright metal on the inside corners where the anodizing was scraped away when the edge was rounded out. Please accept our most sincere apologies, and please pay attention to this notice. We will send you enough chalk to more than cover your shipping.
