Aquanaut Pty Ltd—Diving Unlimited International Weight & Trim II, and Classic Weight & Trim Systems
What are the defects?
DUI recently became aware of a problem with some of these products shipped between July 2010 and 16th April 2011. They found there was an inconsistency in the lanyard/cable length attached to the handle that forms part of the mechanism to release weights from the harness.
What are the hazards?
If the lanyard and/or cables are not the right length, the weight pockets do not easily detach from the harness when the handle is pulled. In the unlikely situation a handle is pulled in an emergency, this could prevent the weights from easily dropping as designed.
What should consumers do?
Diving Unlimited International has issued re-work instructions to rectify this issue. Consumers should return any product to their place of purchase who will return any affected products to the supplier who will inspect and rework affected products. Rework instructions also cover the addition of identifying marks for ease of identifcation.
The product in question was only supplied to three Scuba Diving Stores / Scuba Diving Operations.
- 1 July 2010 - 16 April 2011
