IMPORTANT SAFETY ALERT

Limited Recall – FitzWright Liferaft

- - 


Initial investigation has revealed the Inflation System’s Firing Pin retaining clip has been experiencing material degradation on the clips that secure it to the Firing Wire/Painter Line. In these limited instances, the weakened clip has failed, allowing the release of the firing pin, which then allows gas from the CO2 Cylinder into the liferaft, causing the unplanned and premature inflation.

 

This material degradation does not prevent the proper and planned inflation and deployment of your liferaft from occurring, should you need it

 

While the likelihood of premature inflation is very small, this issue left uncorrected could result in damage to your liferaft or injury to persons near it, should it inflate unplanned and prematurely. We are implementing a corrective action that mandates replacement of the defective component. To avoid potential damage to equipment, this part replacement should occur at your earliest practical opportunity.

 

To facilitate the Firing Pin Replacement Service Bulletin in the safest and most expeditious manner for you, we will be replacing at no charge to you, the existing Inflation System Firing Pin on your Liferaft. You will be responsible for complying with any normal recommended service procedures and transportation of the Liferaft to and from the service facility.

 

To determine if your liferaft is affected by this limited recall, please contact FitzWright Survival Inc. at:

YOUR SAFETY is of the utmost importance to us!

We regret this occurrence and the inconvenience it causes you. Although the probability that liferaft would prematurely inflate is small, we are addressing this issue by erring on the side of safety.
We thank you for your patience while we work hard to protect lives and the environment, together.
