Aqua Lung Consumer Notice - RECALL


ALL SureLock II Rubber Weight Pocket Handles


Aqua Lung is conducting a voluntary recall of all SureLock II rubber weight pocket handles. SureLock II is the mechanical weight release system found on most Aqua Lung buoyancy compensators (BCs) beginning in 2009. Whether you have an original rubber handle or one of the revised rubber handles from the previous recall, Aqua Lung would now like to replace it with the latest generation handle, p/n 12396.


Aqua Lung is concerned about the life expectancy of both models of rubber handles. A failure may occur due to separation of the rubber, cracking, tearing or breaking. If this were to occur during a dive, the weight pocket would be left engaged inside the BC. While there are no known occurrences of this happening underwater, and there have not been any reported injuries, Aqua Lung believes that a recall is the safe and prudent thing to do. The newest generation of handle does not rely upon rubber and is considered much stronger and safer.


Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using their BCs with Sure Lock II rubber weight pocket handles. Bring the pockets to your nearest authorized Aqua Lung Dive Retailer or Dive Center. They will be able to replace your handles for you while you wait, as changing handles is a quick process. The replacement is made under warranty and you will not incur any charges.


This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.


Consumer Contact - for additional assistance please call (855) 355-7170 or visit www.aqualung.com and click on the Recall Notice.

540-039 Front Stand Offs (x2 per helmet) added to Kirby Morgan Helmets


Helmets and Products Affected: All Kirby Morgan Helmets except the SuperLite 17B. 560-074 Bottom Ring, 560-517 Stainless Steel Helmet Shell. All shells with Bottom Ring Assemblies: 505-105, 505-106, 505-107, 505-108, 505-162.


With the exception of the SL 17B, all Kirby Morgan Helmets will soon be shipping with the new Front Stand Offs, P/N 540-039 (two per helmet). These serve as “front legs” that will help protect the swing catch assembly, sealed pull pins and other components from damages if the helmet is set down roughly or hard. Each stand off takes one screw, P/N 530-059, to attach.


Front Stand Offs unfortunately will not retrofit to earlier helmets. Retrofit is not possible because the large bottom ring area has now been specially redesigned with uniquely shaped recesses to hold the front stand offs.
