Product IdentifiersPotentially affected units sold from January to August 2019 Affected date of manufacturer: January 2019 to March 2019 The date of manufacture (DOM) is located on a sticker on the shell of the product. Devices sold prior to December 2018 or outside of the specified date of manufacture are not affected by the recall. ZERO CR-30 Dusky Steel Cable Retractor The Dusky Steel retractable device can be used as part of a personal fall protection system that connects to either the front or rear D on a safety harness and extends to the anchorage point.
The internal retracting spring which controls the retraction of the steel cable can potentially detach itself from its retained position when fully tensioned. If the spring becomes unsecured the steel cable may fail to retract or become entangled within the unit increasing the risk of a fall. The steel cable does not detach from the unit itself, it is the internal spring mechanism to controls the retracting action which is malfunctioning.
