WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Diving Unlimited is recalling about 1,500 Weight & Trim System Classic and DUI Weight & Trim System II weight systems sold in the United States and Canada. The recall is because manufacturing defects in the lanyard connecting the handle to the pocket or the cable securing the pocket to the harness can prevent the weight pockets from easily detaching from the harness and releasing the weights when the handle is pulled. The CPSC is poses a drowning hazard to consumers.
The weight harnesses are made of heavyweight nylon and are black in color with gray handles. The DUI logo appears on the pockets. The Weight & Trim System Classic has two small weight pockets on each side. The Weight & Trim System II has one large weight pocket on each side. Systems with large silver stripes on the sides have been inspected or repaired and are not affected by this recall.
Consumers should immediately stop using the systems and call DUI at (800) 325-8439 Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT to receive a free repair of the system.
For additional information, contact DUI Customer Service between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday at (800) 325-8439 or visit the DUI's website.
