Safety Advisory – Palm Extrem and FXr PFDs

palm PFD

Some of our whitewater PFDs have shipped with an incorrect sized chest harness attached. This potentially affects:

  • FXr PFDs
  • Extrem men’s PFDs purchased from 2014 onwards

The wrong sized harness potentially allows the quick release buckle to move behind the PFD’s pocket, hindering the quick release mechanism.

As a precaution we are asking both dealers and owners  to carry out the following checks on the above PFDs.

Step 1 – check that the plastic triglide is sitting on top of the retaining loop

Step 2 – with the triglide in place, check that the quick release buckle is not being pulled behind the PFD pocket

Step 3 – post incorrect harnesses back to us

If you find that the quick release buckle is pulled behind the pocket, then remove the PFD from the shop floor and take the harness off. Send the incorrect harnesses back to us, we will cover postage costs.

Step 4 – order replacements

let us know how many replacements you need, by using the form below. We will post you replacement harnesses within 10 – 14 days, which can then be refitted ready for sale. Please contact our sales department if you have any further questions.

For your customers who have purchased the above PFDs:

Please advise them to carry out these checks, and share this link where possible.—palm-fxr-and-extrem-pfds

If a new harness is needed, they should contact us directly at:

They are still safe to use in situations when not using the quick release harness, or with the harness completely removed from the PFD.

Thank you for your help, we are very sorry for any inconvenience.
