Aqua Lung BCD Recall

Aqua Lung Recalls Buoyancy Compensators Due to a Drowning Hazard  

Name of product: Aqua Lung buoyancy compensators with SureLock II weight pocket handles 

Description: This recall involves all Aqua Lung buoyancy compensators with SureLock II rubber handles attached to weight pockets, including the following models: Axiom, Axiom i3, Balance, Black Diamond, Dimension, Libra, Lotus, Pearl, Pearl i3, Pro LT, Pro QD, Pro QDi3 and Zuma buoyancy compensators. The SureLock II handles are gray rubber and measure about 2 inches tall by 4 inches wide.   The buoyancy compensator's model name is embroidered on the inside back pad or the weight pocket's right lobe. "SureLock" is molded into the back of the weight pocket.

Hazard: The rubber handles can detach as divers are trying to remove the weight pockets to rise to the surface in an emergency. This poses a drowning hazard.

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the recalled buoyancy compensators and return the two weight pockets to an authorized Aqua Lung dealer to receive a free inspection and free replacement for recalled weight pocket handles.
