Apex BASE - Service Bulletin SSR-4-16 new


Date: April 19, 2016
Service Bulletin #SSR-4-16
Subject: 3-ring risers with stainless steel rings

Status: Recommended

Identification: Integrity (rear facing) risers with Velcro toggle keeper, stainless steel 3-ring (large ring) manufactured by Apex BASE.

Background: It has been brought to our attention that a stainless steel ring on a 3-ring riser has bent during use. See photo.

Service Bulletin: Stainless steel riser rings should be inspected for bending. Bent ring risers should be returned to Apex BASE and a replacement set of risers will be provided. The tensile strength of the visually deformed ring is still greater than the Type 8 riser webbing. Dents in the area where the rings make contact with each other, are common and not a concern (shown below).
