Crewsaver issues lifejacket safety warning
09 Oct 2007
PRODUCT RECALL: Crewsavers lifejacket servicing department says there is a problem with the United Moulders' Mk3 Standard Automatic Head fitted to Crewfit and Survivor inflatable lifejackets.
Tests indicate that this component, which was fitted to Crewfit and Survivor lifejackets manufactured before 1997, is now at the end of its safe and usable life and should be replaced.
Crewsaver insists its essential that the head replacement be undertaken by the company. On no account should you attempt to replace this yourself, said Crewsaver.
The company strongly recommends that owners of Crewfit or Survivor lifejackets with an Mk3 Standard Automatic Head fitted should contact Crewsaver on + 44 (0)2392 528621 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
