Dear Valued Customer,

Week commencing 8th February 2016 we were notified of a safety notice issued by AustriAlpin dated 14th January 2016. The safety notice concerns a buckle that is used as a component in some of our products and requires an inspection.
Very small quantities of the COBRA® buckles manufactured by AustriAlpin have been found to be riveted incorrectly (0.0000005% = 1 out of 2 million).

The products affected by this notice are as follows:

  • LSYNRAS Lyon Synergy Restricted Access Stretcher
  • LSYNRAS DE Lyon Synergy Restricted Access Stretcher (German version)
  • LSYNRAS MK2 Lyon Synergy Restricted Access Stretcher MK2
  • LSYNRAS MK2 DE Lyon Synergy Restricted Access Stretcher MK2 (German version)

  • RL3000GX-V20 Kohlbrat and Bunz Roll up stretcher
  • SK208C SKED quick release buckle system sold as an accessory for the SK200 stretcher


AustriAlpin have requested that a visual inspection is carried out on all of their COBRA® buckles. Guidance on how to carry out the inspection can be found on the accompanying document here.

We would ask that you stop using the above products and carry out the inspection on all of the COBRA® buckles on the item.

If you do not find any anomalies with your buckles then the product can go back into service.

If you do find a buckle with a rivet which has not been press fixed correctly then we would ask that the product remains quarantined and that you contact our Customer Service team here at Lyon Equipment on + 44 (0)15396 26261 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
