AquaLung recalls some Apeks branded BCDs

Name of Product:

Apeks Exotec SCUBA Diving Buoyancy Compensator Devices (BCDs)


The dump valve knob can get stuck when the recalled BCD is inflated, opening the dump valve which stops the BCD from fully inflating. This can result in a loss of buoyancy control and poses injury (decompression sickness) and drowning hazards.

Apeks recalls Exotec BCD

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.
