A Major Mask Recall Due to Shattering Glass

from the August, 2015 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

How 12 out of 2,600 Chinese-made mask lenses could shatter before its American distributor recalled the mask is a mystery to us, but at last, Technosport is recalling the Omersub Zero Cube dive masks that it sold in the U.S. between April 2012 and April 2014. Technosport sales manager Mike Stallings told us that the 2,600 recalled masks, made in China, had nonconforming 2 mm lenses. "All those produced after April 2014 now have 3 mm tempered lenses that have been impact tested; the easiest way to differentiate between the two is the finish of the silicone apron. Masks with a gloss finish are the earlier production with the substandard lens."

Divers with recalled masks will get the new ones at no cost. Call Technosport at (800) 853-1911 Monday through Friday, email them at, or go online at
