Miller MightEvac, MightyLite Self-Retracting Lifelines Recall, Stop Use

Immediate Stop Use Required – MANDATORY STOP USE NOTICE

PRODUCT ADVISORY

All recipients of this mandatory stop use notice must read, understand and follow all instructions. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death.

At Honeywell, our mission is to be the global leader in personal protective equipment with innovative solutions that protect and save lives. In line with our commitment to our mission statement, we are writing to inform you of potentially non-conforming brake components in certain models of Miller MightEvac and MightyLite Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRLs) ranges manufactured within a specific timeframe. While there have been NO reported incidents due to this nonconformity, continued use of the product could result in serious injury or death.

This notice only affects the models listed in Table 1 (in Notice), with identified manufacturing dates or re-certification dates between October 27, 2016 and October 6, 2018. Models outside of this date range, including new units, are not affected by this notice.

To determine whether your MightEvac and/or MightyLite Self Retracting Lifeline SRL is affected by this notice, please take the following steps immediately:

  • STEP 1: Look for model number on the product label and the date of manufacture (see Figure 1 in Notice).
  • STEP 2: If the model number on the label is on the list on Table 1 (in Notice) AND the manufacture date is between October 27, 2016 and October 6, 2018, then remove this product from service immediately.
  • STEP 3: If the unit has been recertified or repaired (See Figure 2 in Notice) between October 27, 2016 and October 6, 2018, then remove this product from service immediately.
  • STEP 4: Once you have identified affected units, go to: https://industrialsafety.honeywell.com/content/his/us/en/stopuse.html to submit a request for returning your unit to Honeywell for repair.

We have already determined a solution for the potential non-conforming brake components for affected models of Miller MightEvac and MightyLite Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRLs), which will require replacement of the brake component at our repair center. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause and potential business disruption. We urge you to immediately discontinue use of affected units to avoid safety risks. Our team is working hard to streamline the return and repair process. Replacement of the brake component will be free of charge and at no additional cost to you. We will provide you with more details on the return and replacement process.

3M™ PROTECTA® Cobra Rope Grab AC202D

Action Date – JULY 26, 2019

Stop Use & Recall Notice – 3M PROTECTA Cobra Rope Grab AC202D
Stop Use & Recall Notice – 3M PROTECTA Cobra Rope Grab AC202D

Stop Use & Recall Notice – IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

PRODUCT ADVISORY

3M Fall Protection has determined that the 3M™ PROTECTA® Cobra Mobile/Manual Rope Grab AC202D is incorrectly stamped for use with 1/2 to 3/4 inch diameter rope on the exterior body of the unit. This Cobra Rope Grab is certified for use ONLY with 5/8 inch diameter polyester or polypropylene rope. All marketing information and the Instructions for Use (IFU) for this rope grab correctly identify the size of rope to be used as 5/8 inch polyester/polypropylene rope.

In the event of a fall from height, a Cobra Rope Grab used with 1/2 inch diameter rope may not arrest the fall and could result in serious injury or death to the worker. To remedy this situation, 3M is launching a Stop Use & Product Recall to replace all AC202D and related Cobra Rope Grabs that are stamped 1/2″—3/4″ Dia.

All Model Numbers Effected: AC202D, AC202D/0, AC202A10, and 5000011B

Users/Owners: Immediately stop using and inspect your Cobra Rope Grab as described below:

  • Step 1: Verify the rope diameter is stamped 1/2″—3/4″ Dia on the front side of the unit.
  • Step 2: Verify the rope grab is stamped PROTECTA COBRA on the front side of the unit.
  • Note: If the unit is stamped 5/8 inch diameter OR if the unit has a white label showing 5/8 inch diameter, then the unit is safe to return to normal use (see image on right for correct 5/8” diameter marking).

3M™ DBI-SALA® Nano-Lok™ edge and Wrap Back
Twin-Leg Self Retracting Lifelines

Action Date – JULY 25, 2019

Stop Use & Recall Notice – 3M DBI-SALA Twin Nano-Lok Edge & Wrap Back Self-Retracting Lifelines

Stop Use & Recall Notice – IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

PRODUCT ADVISORY

3M Fall Protection announces an immediate stop use and product recall of the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Nano-Lok™ edge and Wrap Back Twin-Leg Self Retracting Lifelines. The twin-leg Nano-Lok edge is part of a personal fall protection system and connects two self-retracting lifelines/devices (SRL’s/SRD’s) directly under the dorsal d-ring of a worker’s harness. It is intended to be anchored at foot-level, and is designed for sharp edge applications. The twin-leg Wrap Back Nano-Lok is intended for wrapping around an anchor and incorporates a similar energy absorber. 3M has determined that in the event of a fall and under certain conditions, the energy absorber may not properly deploy which could expose the worker to serious injury or death. Although there have been no reports of accidents or injuries associated with this issue, these products must be removed from service immediately.

To address this situation in the interests of worker safety, 3M is launching a global stop use of the Nano-Lok edge and Wrap Back Twin-Leg SRL units and is recalling all these units to be repaired or replaced as soon as a solution is identified, tested and certified. In the interim, and until a repair or replacement is available, end-users may elect to receive cash for their returned units as described below. This stop use and recall affects all versions of the Nano-Lok edge and Wrap Back Twin-Leg SRL’s since first introduced in 2013.

Users/Owners: Immediately stop using your Nano-Lok edge and Wrap Back Twin-Leg SRL and take these units out of service. Next, go to www.NanoLokEdgeRecall.com and follow the instructions on how to return your unit. As soon as a product solution is available, 3M will either repair or replace your unit and return it to you at 3M’s expense. Alternatively, and until a product solution is available, you can elect to receive cash in the amount of $200 USD when you return your unit. As an interim solution for applications requiring 100% continuous connection in leading edge applications with sufficient fall clearance, 3M recommends the DBI-SALA® EZ-Stop Leading Edge 100% Tie-Off Cable Shock Absorbing Lanyard. You can also contact 3M Customer Service at 1-833-638-2697 or 3musfpserviceaction@mmm.com for additional recall information.

3M™ Dorsal D-Ring Extenders in Leading-Edge Applications

Action Date – JANUARY 14, 2019

Dorsal D-Ring Extenders

3M ID 70007438503/3M DBI-SALA® PN 1231117

Dorsal D-Ring Extenders

3M ID 70007437612/3M PROTECTA® PN 1385000

PRODUCT ADVISORY

3M Fall Protection has received a series of inquiries regarding the use of dorsal D-ring extenders with Leading Edge SRL’s in environments where sharp edges are present. Examples of 3M dorsal D-ring extenders are shown below, but the concern applies to all dorsal D-ring extenders, regardless of the supplier/manufacturer.

Testing shows that, when dorsal D-ring extenders are used together with Leading Edge SRL’s in a leading/sharp edge application, it is possible for the lanyard, subsystem, or other system components (such as the SRL shock-pack/energy absorber) to come into contact with, and be severed by, an unprotected sharp edge.

3M’s user instructions for D-ring extenders specifically direct users to avoid working where the lanyard, subsystem, or other system components will be in contact with, or abrade against unprotected sharp edges. If working with this equipment near sharp edges is unavoidable, then protection against the lanyard, subsystem, or other system components being abraded or severed must be provided by using a heavy pad or other means over the exposed sharp edge. The dorsal D-ring extender is approved for use in applications where the anchor is overhead and exposure to a sharp edge is not possible. Please refer to our instructions for use for more detailed information.

See Rope Lanyards Instruction Manual

Regarding 3M products, this Product Advisory applies to the use of D-ring extenders on all 3M Self-Retracting Lifeline Devices with a model designation or description of Leading Edge (LE) rated, including models:

  • 3MTM DBI-SALA® Ultra-Lok™ Leading Edge SRL’s (model #’s 3504422, 3504500 & 3504600)
  • 3M ™ DBI-SALA® Smart Lock Leading Edge SRL’s (model #’s 3503802 & 3503822)
  • 3MTM Protecta Leading Edge SRL’s (model #’s 3590540, 3590543, 3590546 & 3590548)
  • 3M™ DBI-SALA® Force2™ Leading Edge Lanyards (model #’s 1246066, 1246261, 1246068 & 1246178)
