Halcyon OPV Spring Recall Information

Halcyon Manufacturing Inc. in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has initiated a voluntary recall of select Eclipse, Evolve, Explorer, Pioneer and CCR35 buoyancy compensators (BCDs) manufactured between January, 2006 and September, 2008. In addition, select Halcyon inflatable devices (Lift Bags, SMB's, DAM's, Surf Shuttles and Diver Lift rafts) may also be affected. These BCDs or Inflatable Devices could develop excessive corrosion or rusting problems with the stainless steel Over Pressure Valve (OPV) spring, causing the spring to fail and the BCD or Inflatable Device to leak through the OPV. It is unlikely that most of these units will experience any problems since the potential defect is limited to a very small portion of the total number of OPV springs used during this time period. However, given the potentially serious implications all OPV springs should be checked to minimize risk.



Dive Rite OPV Spring Recall Information

Dive Rite takes the safety of our consumers very seriously. In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Dive Rite is issuing a voluntary recall on various Dive Rite Wings.

The Over Pressurization Valve (OPV) springs found on Dive Rite wings manufactured between June 2006 and October 2008 may rust and fail allowing the buoyancy compensator devices to lose gas and pose a drowning hazard. The wings may be red, blue or black in color and have serial numbers falling between 42000 and 72000. The following models are affected by this recall: Travel, Venture, Rec, Trek, Classic, Nomad and Super Wings. It does not affect EXP or 360-branded wings. The recall does not affect lift bags, surface marker tubes or other Dive Rite inflatable devices.

Due to the serious implications of an OPV spring failure, consumers should stop using the recalled diving equipment and have the OPV spring immediately replaced by a Dive Rite authorized dealer or distributor.
You may also contact Dive Rite directly.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact Dive Rite directly at 800-495-1046 with any questions.

INSTRUCTIONS TO REPLACE OPV SPRING
 
Unscrew the OPV. There will be a cover, a spring and a plug on the same string.
Remove the old spring. The spring can be easily removed by locating one end of the spring and allowing the string to go below one end of the spring. Then move the string around the outside of the spring, continuing until the spring is free.
ALL OPV springs must be replaced.
Install the new spring. Locate one end of the spring and allow the string to slide under that end. Move the string around the outside of the spring. Finally allow the string to pass below the other end. This completes the spring replacement.

Replace the OPV. Make sure the OPV is free of sand or other debris on the flange. There is a slight depression on the plug and cover of the OPV for the spring to sit in. Plug the OPV back onto the flange. Make sure the cover is flat and in relation to the flange. Gently begin to screw down the OPV cover. This should go on easily. If you feel resistance, stop, unscrew the OPV, reposition and try again. Continuing to force the OPV when you feel resistance may cause damage from cross threading. Do not force the OPV into place.


Inflate the wing. Inflate the wing to full capacity and allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes to check that the OPV is seated properly and not leaking. If the wing holds air, the OPV replacement is complete. If the wing deflates, remove the OPV and repeat the above steps. If the wing still does not hold air, contact Dive Rite at 1-800-495-1046 for assistance.
