3M™ G-Series Retractable Lanyard Models:

In an effort to ensure that 3M provides our customers with quality products and services, we have recently completed an analysis of GW-7 and GW-11 Series Self-Retracting Lanyards that were returned to us. We have identified a limited number of these units which do not properly achieve lock up during the user pre-inspection pull test on the webbing lifeline (as required by the User Instructions and OSHA regulations).
As a result, 3M requests that you immediately remove from service and quarantine all models of G-Series Self-Retracting Lanyards within your inventory. G-Series model numbers are provided at the top of this announcement for reference.
We request that the following steps be implemented:
1. Immediately stop use and quarantine all inventory of G-Series products.
2. Contact Ray Mann, 3M Fall Protection Technical Service, at 704-743-2406 for product return information.
