Potential Danger with Aqua Lung Weight Pockets

from the November, 2012 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Aqua Lung is conducting a voluntary recall of SureLockII weight pocket handles, which it has put into most of its BCDs since 2009. They are concerned that the rubber handle can pull off of the plastic weight pocket, leaving the weight pocket still attached to the BCD. The company says there are no known occurrences of this happening underwater or any reported injuries, but it's making a judgment call to recall all of them. The revised handle now has a thickened band of rubber at the base.

Anyone using SureLockII weight pockets, no matter what year you bought them, should bring them to the nearest Aqua Lung retailer, which can quickly replace your handles while you wait. The replacement is made under warranty and free of charge; however, the handles will be in short supply for most of November.
