Corbeau USA, LLC 5-Point Camlock Harness Belt Recall (53001B, 53007B, 53009B)
TO: All Corbeau USA, LLC Dealers, and Consumers
FROM: Corbeau USA, LLC, Bluffdale, UT, USA

Corbeau USA, LLC has recently discovered a potential safety issue with its 5-Point Camlock Harness Belts. We have reason to believe that on a small percentage of belts, the right lap insert tab had the hole drilled off center by a 1/16th of an inch, causing the lock pin inside the camlock dial to not lock properly. This could potentially cause the right lap belt to come unlocked from the camlock dial under minimal stress.

Corbeau USA, LLC is voluntarily recalling 5-Point camlock harness belts with part numbers 53001B, 53007B, and 53009B purchased between 4/01/16 and 4/24/17. These would have stamp dates between May 2016 and May 2017. In other words, all belts with SFI stamp dates from May 2016 to June 2017 are being recalled. This does not include any belts purchased after 4/24/17. We are certain this only applies to a very small percentage of these belts but at the same time also want to be certain that all belts in the field are free from this defect. The problem was found during testing with the SFI foundation. This recall ONLY applies to 5-Point camlock harness belts. While we are certain this only applies to a small percentage of belts, we ask that you please contact us immediately to return your belts so there are no doubts that your belts are free from defect.
