MSA is issuing this Inspection Notice to inform you that MSA has received a field report of an unflared center shaft in an MSA Latchways 10 ft. (3m) web PFL.
MSA has not received any reports of injuries associated with this condition. However, we are requesting that you perform the inspection outlined in this notice. If subjected to rough handling, an unflared center shaft may eventually dislodge completely from the web PFL.
If the shaft dislodges completely from the web PFL, the web PFL will continue to pay out and retract during normal use, but will not arrest a fall.
MSA is advising all customers to inspect the center shafts of any MSA Latchways web PFLs that are 10 ft. (3 m) and shorter.
Inspect per the Instructions in the below Notice. Remove from service any web PFL that does not pass the inspection.
