Product Safety Alert!

3M Fall Protection has issued a “stop use and product recall” for the DBI-SALA Self-Rescue Descent System. This recall is a response to address a potential cracking issue that may occur after repetitive descents. A review of returned training units from the field have concluded that the cracking condition is a result of embrittlement over time of the plastic spool used to hold the lifeline rope. This embrittlement could inhibit the ability of the Self-Rescue Descent System to fully descend an end user in the event of a fall. This product must be immediately removed from service and returned to 3M Fall Protection for inspection or repair, if required.

NOTE: 3M Fall Protection is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition. This recall affects the following parts manufactured before July 2020:

  • 3M DBI-SALA Self Rescue Descent Systems
  • #3320030 50’ Self-Rescue
  • #3320031 100’ Self-Rescue
  • #3320037 30’ Self-Rescue Training
