SUUNTO PRODUCT RECALL - High Pressure Rubber Hoses Batch 1812

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE REGARDING HIGH PRESSURE RUBBER HOSES

Suunto announces a limited quantity safety recall


Dear Suunto Customer,

On 22nd August, 2013 Suunto Oy issued an important safety notice regarding high pressure rubber hoses. A limited batch of the high pressure rubber hoses used with Suunto air integrated dive computers, dive computer combos and analog combos has unfortunately been identified to have defective hose material which may impact the durability of the hose.

 

This defect may cause the high pressure rubber hose to leak or rupture leading to loss of breathing gas at higher than anticipated rate which may result in severe injury or death.

 

Diver safety is of highest importance to Suunto. Suunto announces a limited quantity safety recall of high pressure rubber hoses as identified below.

Identification of the affected high pressure rubber hoses:

  • Black rubber outer covering on hose
  • Marked with text 5000 PSIG PRESSURE TESTED - MADE IN USA
  • Hose diameter approximately 12,5 mm (1/2 inch) and length approximately 84 cm (33 inch)
  • Manufacturing batch code 1812 only

This recall applies only to the specific 1812 batch of the high pressure rubber hoses. Other high pressure rubber hoses are not impacted and need not be replaced.

To date, there have been no known injuries related to this issue. It is, however, mandatory that all affected products are returned for a hose change.
