Product Recall LSD030 15mm Dyneema Sling 30cm

on 14 September 2015.

Dear Consumer,
It has come to our attention that a marking error has occurred on a small batch of our Lyon 15mm Dyneema slings, length 30cm.


All of our Lyon manufactured products include a product label which contains important information about the product. If it is an item of PPE it will include the standard to which the item has been type approved.

It has been noted that on two small batches of slings the product label has been incorrectly marked to include an additional standard to which the sling has not been tested. The LSD030 is tested and approved to EN 566:2006. On the affected slings the product label also includes EN 795:2012 Type B. This information is incorrect and the sling has not been tested to this standard.

We know from our records that this is limited to two small batches of slings produced between October 2014 and February 2015.

Corrective Actions

The issue has been rectified and the label corrected so that this cannot happen again. Any slings manufactured before October 2014 and after March 2015 will not be affected by this issue.

Requested Action

If you have purchased a 15mm Dyneema Sling in a 30cm length after September 2014, we request that you check the product label. If the label looks like the incorrect example below then we ask that you contact us at either
