3M™ DBI-SALA® Twin-Leg Nano-Lok™
Product IdentifiersSupplied from January 2013 to July 2019 3M™ DBI-SALA® Twin-Leg Nano-Lok™ LE 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. The Twin-Leg Nano-Lok LE is intended to be anchored at foot-level, is designed for sharp and/or leading edge applications and incorporates an energy absorber. The Twin-Leg Nano-Lok Wrap Back is intended for wrapping around an anchor and incorporates a similar energy absorber.
3M has determined that in a fall and under certain conditions, the energy absorber of these devices may not properly deploy. If the energy absorber fails to deploy properly it could lea to serious injury or death. There have been no reports of accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
