Consumer Notice - RECALL

Aqua Lung is conducting a voluntary recall of select Powerline inflators. Powerline inflators are found on all Aqua Lung Buoyancy Compensators and the Apeks Black Ice Buoyancy Compensator. If you have purchased an Aqua Lung BCD/Apeks Black Ice since January 1, 2015, it will need to be inspected to determine if it meets the specific criteria and requires updating. Aqua Lung is concerned that a failure may occur during a dive, causing the Powerline to continue inflating after the inflation button has been released, increasing the potential of an uncontrolled ascent. While there have been reports of this occurring underwater, there have not been any reported injuries, and Aqua Lung believes that a voluntary recall is the safe and prudent thing to do.
 
Aqua Lung Powerline Inflator Update 2016
Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using their BCs with Powerline inflators with a date code beginning with an H. Bring the BCD to your nearest authorized Aqua Lung Dive Retailer or Dive Center. They will be able to update your Powerline inflator for you. The replacement is made under warranty and you will not incur any charges.
Consumer Contact - for additional assistance please call (800) 775-3483 or visit aqualung.com and click on the Recall & Safety Notices.
This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Consumer Notice - RECALL

Aqua Lung is conducting a voluntary recall of all SureLock II rubber weight pocket handles. SureLock II is the mechanical weight release system found on most Aqua Lung buoyancy compensators (BCs) beginning in 2009. Whether you have an original rubber handle or one of the revised rubber handles from the previous recall, Aqua Lung would now like to replace it with the latest generation handle, p/n 12396. Aqua Lung is concerned about the life expectancy of both models of rubber handles. A failure may occur due to separation of the rubber, cracking, tearing or breaking. If this were to occur during a dive, the weight pocket would be left engaged inside the BC. While there are no known occurrences of this happening underwater, and there have not been any reported injuries, Aqua Lung believes that a recall is the safe and prudent thing to do. The newest generation of handle does not rely upon rubber and is considered much stronger and safer.
 
Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using their BCs with Sure Lock II rubber weight pocket handles. Bring the pockets to your nearest authorized Aqua Lung Dive Retailer or Dive Center. They will be able to replace your handles for you while you wait, as changing handles is a quick process. The replacement is made under warranty and you will not incur any charges.

This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
