This Safety Notice affects All Original Ozium Harnesses (not the new Ozium 2). Ozone have received a report of a case of failure during a simulated deployment. The pins on the reserve deployment handles of all original Ozium harnesses may have been damaged during production. The damage, if present, may result in the pin breaking during deployment causing the reserve compartment to remain closed even if the handle is released. As the breakage is in an area hidden from view Ozone are replacing all reserve handles as a precautionary measure.
Action required: Mandatory Replacement of Reserve Handle
The reserve deployment handles on all Original Ozium harnesses should be replaced before next use. Please contact the dealer who sold you your Ozium harness or Ozone to request a replacement handle. Replacement (GOOD) handles are clearly marked with blue bartacks. If your reserve handle has the blue bartacks, it has been replaced and is OK to fly. If the reserve handle does not, then it must be replaced.
