3M Fall Protection has identified a limited number of Protecta Harnesses where the harness webbing is not routed through the adjuster. This condition results in the adjuster not being able to be adjusted or does not lock in place after adjustments have been made. The assembly error is believed to affect only a limited number of units and has been corrected.
There have been no accidents or injuries related to this issue. This manufacturing issue will result in the harness not performing properly in the event of a fall, which could result in severe injury or death. Due to this, we are sending out an inspection notice so this issue can be detected by inspecting the harness as shown in the notice linked below.
