Aqualung recalls SureLock II weight pocket handles
Aqua Lung is conducting a voluntary recall of SureLock II weight pocket handles.
SureLock II is the mechanical weight-release system found on most Aqua Lung BCDs beginning in 2009. Aqua Lung is concerned about the rubber handle pulling off of the plastic SureLock II weight pocket assembly. If this were to occur during a dive, the weight pocket would be left engaged inside the BCD.
There are no known occurrences of this happening underwater, and there have not been any reported injuries, but Aqua Lung believes that a recall is the safe and prudent thing to do.
Aqua Lung has made a revision to the handle assembly that strengthens it. A revised handle is easily recognised by a thickened band of rubber at the base of the handle.
Consumers should immediately stop using their BCDs with SureLock II weight pockets and take the pockets to their nearest authorised Aqua Lung retailer or dive centre. The centre will replace the handles onsite. The replacements will be made under warranty and if therefore free of charge.
