Stop Use & Recall Talon Self-Retracting Lifelines
Posted: Sep 20, 2018
3M Fall Protection has detected a small quantity of DBI-SALA® 16 Ft. Talon™ Self Retracting Lifelines that are defective due to an assembly error. This notice only applies to the 16 ft version of the Talon; no other versions of the Talon are affected by this condition. There have been no reports of fall-related injuries associated with this condition. However, this assembly error would result in the unit not arresting a fall, which could result in serious injury or death.
To remedy this situation, 3M is launching a global Stop Use & Recall Field Service Action to inspect, repair or replace all 16 ft.Talon Self-Retracting Lifelines with lot codes 12092430 through 18062730. Parts produced before or after this lot range are not affected by this notice.
