LINQ Essential Harness with Quick Release Buckles (H101QR)

The Hazard!

There is a risk that the buckle may release unintentionally while in use.

If the buckle releases while working at height, it could lead to a fall and serious injury or death.

What to do...

STOP using the harness and contact Clive Marple at Paramount Safety to arrange for a refund or free replacement harness.

Identify if your harness is affected by checking the product label located inside the velcro pouch on the left rear shoulder strap - see batch and serial numebr identification below.
