SAFETY NOTICE - BUCKLES IN PXP PARAMOTOR HARNNES

!!! IMPORTANT! FOR USERS OF HARNNES IN PXP PARAMOTOR

Security Note published by the DHV for harnesses equipped with automatic closing of Finsterwalder Click-Lock and T-lock type on the chest strap.

Due to the service life limitation of CLICK-LOCK and T-LOCK buckles, we recommend you as one of the manufacturers of affected harnesses to also publish a safety notice. In it, you can specify the affected harness types and you have the possibility to offer reworking, similar to how we did it with our affected harnesses.

Finsterwalder has conducted a technical investigation and found the following: The hooks of the metal tongue can wear out through the frequent diagonal load changes the chest strap is subject to. This might lead to decreased load capacity and – in the case of sufficiently high diagonal load transmission – the buckle might open unintentionally.
As a consequence of this finding, Finsterwalder has limited the respective buckles’ service time to 4 years if they are used in paraglider chest straps. The harness manufacturers have already been informed accordingly.

To date, there have been no unintentional openings of T-LOCK buckles. However, since their mechanism resembles that of CLICK-LOCK buckles, the problem is likely to be the same. Finsterwalder calls on all owners of harnesses equipped with CLICK-LOCKs (HSi10) or T-LOCKs in the chest strap to determine their buckles’ previous usage time by checking the routine test date on the sample inspection label. If this date indicates a usage time of more than 4 years, the harness is not airworthy for now and may not be used for flying anymore. Affected owners should contact their harness manufacturer.

The service time limitation applies only to CLICK-LOCK and T-LOCK buckles that are used in paraglider chest straps. When used for applications where only static loads are involved, the CLICK-LOCK and T-LOCK buckles’ service life is 10 years..

Affected harnesses include models by: Advance, Aerochute, Aeroman, Aeros, Airbulle, Air Heart, Akyüz, AVA Sport, APCO, Carona, Ellipse, Easy Fly, Finsterwalder & Charly, Flight Design, Fly Castellucio, Fresh Breeze, Gin, Independence-Skyman-Flymarket, Ochmann, Onda Enterprises, Sky Paragliders, Swing, Fly Products, Karpo Fly, Lookout Mountain, Madreiter, Moyes, Nenerotor, Cwudzinski, PXP, SE-Wing, Sigma, Sitec, Skylotec, SKY Paragliders, SkyTrekking, Supair, Paravis, SOL, Vonblon, Wallend-Air, Wills Wing, Woody Valley, Yamamoto and other manufacturers.

2 - FILING IN CLICK LOCK - ADVISED BY FINSTERWALDER

File with a triangulate file a little at the entrance of the click lock, lowering the depth and remove the round. (See Picture 1)

3 - ADD SECURITY TAPE BETWEEN CARABINERS

(NOT RECOMMENDED) You can put a security tape of some 70 - 80 cm between the carabiners. IMPORTANT, you have to go through half of the chest strap. (see picture 3).
If you think well are much better options: 1 and 2.
If you like this option we have the tape available at a price of €6 (includes tape + 2 carabiners) - Costs of Transport not included.
