Safety Advisory - Palm Extrem and FXr PFDs
Some of our whitewater PFDs have shipped with an incorrect sized chest harness attached. This potentially affects:
- FXr PFDs
- Extrem men's PFDs purchased from 2014 onwards
The wrong sized harness potentially allows the quick release buckle to move behind the PFDâ€™s pocket, hindering the quick release mechanism.
As a precaution we are asking both dealers and owners to carry out the following checks on the above PFDs.
Step 1 â€“ check that the plastic triglide is sitting on top of the retaining loop
Step 2 â€“ with the triglide in place, check that the quick release buckle is not being pulled behind the PFD pocket
Step 3 â€“ post incorrect harnesses back to us
If you find that the quick release buckle is pulled behind the pocket, then remove the PFD from the shop floor and take the harness off. Send the incorrect harnesses back to us, we will cover postage costs.
Step 4 â€“ order replacements
let us know how many replacements you need, by using the form below. We will post you replacement harnesses within 10 - 14 days, which can then be refitted ready for sale. Please contact our sales department if you have any further questions.
