What are the defects?

The handles on the TSB unit may open under vibration whilst driving.

What are the hazards?

If the handles open whilst driving, tools and equipment stored in the unit may fall onto the road, potentially causing damage to the tools/equipment and injury to other road users.

What should consumers do?

Until replacement handles are available, APMI advise affected customers to use a physical restraint and duct tape over the handles and body of the TSB unit to prevent any possibility of the handles opening.

ACTCO Pickering Metal Industries Pty Ltd will contact consumers directly via letter advising them of how the defect will be rectified.
