Apeks recalls Exotec BCD

Posted in:

Aqualung Group is conducting a recall on a limited number of its Exotec BCD. The recall concerns four models where the BCD should have a longer pull cord. As a result, the BCD cannot be fully inflated, which could lead to a lack of buoyancy control.

The issue at hand

When an affected BCD is inflated, the grey pull dump knob retracts towards the stitched channel of the jacket. The channel then prevents the knob from further retracting and slightly opens the dump valve. As a result, the BCD cannot be fully inflated, which could lead to a lack of buoyancy control.
