3M Fall Protection has announced an immediate stop use.
3M Fall Protection has announced an immediate stop use and product recall of the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Twin-Leg Nano-Lok™ edge and the Twin-Leg Nano-Lok™ Wrap Back Self-Retracting Lifeline. These Twin-Leg Nano-Loks are used as part of a personal fall protection system that connects two self-retracting lifelines/devices (SRLs/SRDs) directly under the dorsal D-ring of a worker’s harness.
3M Fall Protection has determined that the 3M™ PROTECTA® Cobra Mobile/Manual Rope Grab AC202D is incorrectly stamped for use with 1/2 to 3/4 inch diameter rope on the exterior body of the unit.
Users/Owners: Immediately stop using and inspect your Cobra Rope Grab as described below:
Step 1: Verify the rope diameter is stamped 1/2"—3/4" Dia on the front side of the unit.
Step 2: Verify the rope grab is stamped PROTECTA COBRA on the front side of the unit.
Note: If the unit is stamped 5/8 inch diameter OR if the unit has a white label showing 5/8" diameter, then the unit is safe to return to normal use (see image below for correct 5/8" diameter marking).
3M is offering either a replacement or a refund for the Nano-Lok’s recall Nano-Lok-Claims
