3M Fall Protection announces an immediate stop use and product recall of the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Nano-Lok™ edge and Wrap Back Twin-Leg Self Retracting Lifelines. The twin-leg Nano-Lok edge is part of a personal fall protection system and connects two self-retracting lifelines/devices (SRL’s/SRD’s) directly under the dorsal d-ring of a worker’s harness. It is intended to be anchored at foot-level, and is designed for sharp edge applications. The twinleg Wrap Back Nano-Lok is intended for wrapping around an anchor and incorporates a similar energy absorber. 3M has determined that in the event of a fall and under certain conditions, the energy absorber may not properly deploy which could expose the worker to serious injury or death. Although there have been no reports of accidents or injuries associated with this issue, these products must be removed from service immediately.
Please contact our Customer Service department at 1-833-638-2697 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a listing of all Nano-Lok edge and Wrap Back Twin-Leg SRL’s sold to you. If you have any of these units in stock, please return them to 3M Fall Protection for credit at 3M’s expense. Please immediately forward this Notice to any of your customers/users who have purchased Nano-Lok edge and Wrap Back Twin-Leg SRL’s from you with an urgent request that they read and comply with this Notice.
