Inspection Notice: 3M™ DBI-SALA® Saflok™ Toggle Anchor

November 11, 2020

INSPECTION NOTICE - IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED 

3M™ DBI-SALA® Saflok™ Toggle Anchor – Canadian Market Only

12 November 2020

3M™ Fall Protection has identified a potential manufacturing issue with a limited number of 3M™ DBI-SALA® Saflok™ Toggle Anchors.  There have been no reports of injuries or accidents associated with this issue.  Based upon a recent return of product from the field, a limited number of Toggle Anchors were not properly swaged.  This manufacturing issue could result in the anchorage loop disconnecting from the body of the Toggle Anchor.  This condition can be easily detected through a visual inspection of the Toggle Anchor.  

Given this information, 3M Fall Protection is issuing an “Inspection Notice” for the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Saflok™ Toggle Anchor part number 2100102 for the specific lot numbers of 032-027 & 032-029.

End Users: Please complete the following actions. 

Step 1: Locate the label (may be a yellow or white vinyl label) on the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Saflok™ Toggle Anchor to identify the part number (model number) and lot number (see picture to the right. The adhesive label will be attached to vinyl label).  If the P/N is 2100102 and lot number is either 032-027 or 032-029, please continue to step 2.  If it does not match these requirements, then the Toggle Anchor is not subject to this inspection notice. 

Step 2:  Visually examine the swaged fitting that connects the anchorage ring to the wire rope of the Toggle Anchor. If the fitting has 6 compression marks (see picture to the right) then the Toggle Anchor is acceptable for use. If the fitting is round and does not exhibit evidence of being swaged (see picture to the right), please immediately remove the toggle anchor from service and contact our Customer Service department at 1-833-998-2243 or email us at 3mcafpserviceaction@mmm.com and we will arrange to have the Toggle Anchor returned to 3M Fall Protection.  Upon receipt, when the lack of swaging is verified, a replacement Toggle Anchor will be shipped to you free of charge. 

Distributors: Upon receipt of this Notice, please contact our Customer Service department at 1-833-998-2243 or email us at 3mcafpserviceaction@mmm.com for a listing of the affected Toggle Anchors sold to you.  If you have any of the affected parts in stock, you should return them to 3M Fall Protection for inspection and/or replacement as per our standard warranty.  Please forward this Notice to any of your customers who have purchased affected products from you and provide any assistance requested by your customers to complete the process.
