Type: Product Recall/Alert
Publisher: 3M Corporation, United States

In the event of a fall from height, a Cobra Rope Grab used with 1/2 inch diameter rope may not arrest the fall and could result in serious injury or death to the worker. To remedy this situation, 3M is launching a Stop Use & Product Recall to replace all AC202D and related Cobra Rope Grabs that are stamped 1/2"-3/4" Dia.
Users/Owners: Immediately stop using and inspect your Cobra Rope Grab as described below:
Step 1: Verify the rope diameter is stamped 1/2"-3/4" Dia on the front side of the unit
Step 2: Verify the rope grab is stamped PROTECTA COBRA on the front side of the unit
Note: If the unit is stamped 5/8 inch diameter OR if the unit has a white label showing 5/8 inch diameter, then the unit is safe to return to normal use (see image on right for correct 5/8" diameter marking).
