December 13, 2019

All Guardian Fall Protection and Web Devices 3-Way Rescue and Retrieval self-retracting lifelines (SRL) manufactured before March of 2019 are being recalled. Under certain conditions, braking forces may cause gear misalignment, potentially resulting in diminished rescue/retrieval. If your company uses any of these SRLs manufactured before March 2019, or uses the equipment, but is uncertain of the date of manufacture, the SRLs should be removed from service immediately. All affected product should be returned to Pure Safety Group for repair. Do not attempt to repair the units.
