Retractor safety bulletin issued


BRANCHBURG, N.J. — Sure-Lok has issued a safety bulletin on its retractable wheelchair tiedown assemblies.

According to the bulletin, a component-related defect has been identified in a few retractor assemblies. The bulletin targets all retractable wheelchair tiedown assemblies shipped through July 2004.

The Sure-Lok bulletin says the component defect “places the sprocket teeth of the retractor assembly out of alignment, causing the load pawl to not fully seat in the sprocket teeth.”

It advises that all of the retractable assemblies be inspected for this potential condition. “Any retractor which meets the defined criteria needs to be removed from service immediately and returned to Sure-Lok for replacement at no charge,” the bulletin says.

For instructions on how to inspect the retractors, contact Sure-Lok’s customer service department at (866) 787-3565.
