SubjectParaglider harness Karpofly Arrow DHV GS-03-0295-04, Karpofly Cobra DHV GS-03-0296-04, Karpofly Mystik DHV GS-03-0298-04, Karpofly School DHV GS-03-0299-04, Karpofly Standard DHV GS-03-0301-04, Clever DHV GS-03-0315-05

The release handle of a Karpofly Clever harness failed during a reserve training session. At deployment the tapes connecting the handle to the splints failed and prevented splint release.

Turnpoint has made the following Safety Advisory:

All owners of the above named harnesses must inspect the tapes connecting splints to the handle before the next flight. Should the connecting tapes show indications of damage (fraying due to abrasion from the splint) then they must be exchanged. Turnpoint will exchange faulty handles free of charge.
