Dive Shop notes:

DUI has sent out this recall notice regarding their weight and trim systems sold to dealers since July 2010.
DUI Weight & Trim System Owners:
DUI Weight & Trim Classic
DUI Weight & Trim II
Purchased since July 2010 with Gray Handles

DUI recently became aware of a problem with some DUI Weight & Trim Systems shipped after July 2010.  If the lanyard and/or cables are not the right length the weight pockets do not easily detach from the harness when the handle is pulled.  In the unlikely situation a handle is pulled in an emergency situation, this could prevent the weights from easily dropping as designed.

All of the Systems affected have GRAY fabric handles.  Systems with yellow plastic handles are NOT affected.

No incidents have been reported. 

If you have one of these Systems, stop using it immediately and call DUI at (800)325-8439 or e-mail to receive appropriate instructions. 

Systems shipped after April 20, 2011, with yellow handles or with gray handles AND a large silver stripe are not affected.
