The Buckles of FallTech Fullbody Harnesses May Be Inproperly Paired And Need Inspection And Replacement.

12/13/03: Comton, USA:The US company Falltech, producer of personal security equipment for industrial climbing, is currently having problems with the buckles of their produced full body harnesses manufactured between october 2010 and february 2012.

 

The male and female parts of the Quick-Connect or bayonet style Buckles used in some of the full body harnesses have been inproperly paired. This inproperly pairing can result in disangagement and unfastening while the buckle is in use. The parts of the Duraform 350 06 D and the Falltech 0-60 have been mixed.

Persons currently using a Falltech full body harness should imidiatelly check the harness by using the following advices:

The Duraform 350 06 D Buckle has no engagement window and no moon shaped cut out.
