|QLR3 WEIGHT POCKET QUALITY ALERT for Excursion 2, Probe HLC, and Ocean Pro 1000D BCD's.
Oceanic has initiated a mandatory replacement (retrofit) of all
original QLR3 Weight Pockets (with black stiffeners) with newly designed
Weight Pockets (with gray stiffeners) that afford better locking.
Extensive analysis by Oceanic engineers has shown that functionality
of a limited number of QLR3 weight pocket systems has been adversely
affected by the materials used. Inconsistencies in the properties of
material rendered it to be unpredictable for use to adequately secure
the weight pockets in the BC. Engineers have tested and evaluated
replacement material that demonstrates superior performance and locking
ability. See link below for further details.
CONSUMER NOTICE: STOP PRODUCT USE - QLR3 BC WEIGHT POCKETS
Oceanic urges all owners of Oceanic BCs that have the original QLR3 Weight Pockets (with black stiffeners) to go online and complete the QLR3 Registration Form to obtain replacement pockets at no charge.

Upon submission and verification of the digital form, Oceanic will ship a pair of the new replacement Weight Pockets (with gray stiffeners) to the address furnished.
