INSPECTION NOTICE – LADSAF X2 & X3 Immediate Action Required

3M Fall Protection (formerly Capital Safety) has identified a limited number of Lad-Saf X2/X3 sleeves with the locking lever not working properly. This condition can allow the sleeve to disengage from the cable during use. The assembly error is believed to affect only a limited number of units and has been corrected. There have been no accidents or injuries related to this issue.

End-users: Immediately conduct an inspection (see 3m-lad-saf-x2-x3-inspection-notice-usa-en-11-22-2016a). This inspection is part of the pre-use inspection recommended for all X2 (#6160030) and X3 (#6160054) sleeves as described below. If you find an affected sleeve, remove the sleeve from service and contact our Customer Service department at 800-328-6146 (prompt #2012) or email to obtain a return authorization. Upon receipt of the affected sleeve, we will ship you a replacement sleeve within 24 hours at no charge.
