Lifejacket recall in component scare

Crewsaver’s lifejacket servicing department says there is a problem with the United Moulders’ Mk3 Standard Automatc Head fitted to Crewfit and Survivor inflatable lifejackets.

Tests indicate that this component, which was fitted to Crewfit and
Survivor lifejackets manufactured before 1997, is now at the end of its
safe and usable life and should be replaced.

Crewsaver insists it’s essential that the head replacement be undertaken by
the company. ‘On no account should you attempt to replace this yourself,’
said Crewsaver.

The company strongly recommends that owners of Crewfit or Survivor
lifejackets with an Mk3 Standard Automatic Head fitted should contact
Crewsaver on 44 (0)2392 528621 or email to discuss
the replacement process.
