Yak throw lines in danger of parting

Crewsaver equipment have issued a recall on one of their safety products – the Yak throwline after discovering that some of these goods come apart when used.

The company has issued a fail safe test:

‘How to identify a fault:

Feed the throw line through your hands slowly looking for a join, this can be easily felt as a rough burr. Take care not to burn your hands during this process, if the rope is gripped too tightly or pulled to quickly.’

‘If you are unsure, or require more information please contact our Customer Service team on 023 9252 8621, Monday to Friday 8.30am – 5pm.

‘What you should do if you find a fault

‘Stop using it, and return it to YAK Paddling, Mumby Road, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 1QA. We will of course replace your throw line and cover the cost of return.’
