Unintentional opening of the Safe-T-Bar buckle on Sup`Air harnesses

This mistake can under certain circumstances cause unintentional opening of the chest strap of the harness. Concerned may be harnesses with a manufacturing date in between April 25th and June 30th 2003.

The manufacturing date of each Sup`Air harness is stamped on to a label which is inside the harness. (as shown in both pictures).

(Date de Fabrication)

To be absolutely sure, that no defective Safe-T-Bar buckle is on your harness, the Safe-T-Bar buckle of all Sup`Air harnesses with a manufacturing date in between April 25th and June 30th 2003 has to be replaced before the next flight. The Safe-T-Bar buckle together with the attached red webbing strap can be exchanged by the owner of the harness himself. Replacement buckles can be ordered free of charge from Sup`Air or the relevant importers in each country.
