MPD 13MM MODEL (RED)
CMC has received a report of a single MPD (13 MM model) that was assembled with an 11 MM model front plate. This would provide additional travel of the internal moving brake, potentially allowing greater gripping force on the rope than would be optimal in some applications.
Initial data from production documents indicate this is likely contained to the single unit already identified. However, additional MPDs that could be affected are from production lots 17178 and 17194. MPD (13 MM) units from these two lots were shipped between August 1 and October 1, 2017.
CMC requests that you inspect all MPD (13 MM) units from the two lot numbers identified for this condition. If you find an MPD with the condition listed above, please immediately remove the unit from service and contact our customer support team by calling (800) 513-7455 or (805) 562-9120 or via email at email@example.com.
