Inspection Advisory
Fall Protection Products with Yoke Snaphooks
February 17, 2014
Dear MSA Fall Protection Customer,
We are issuing this Inspection Advisory to you, and apologize for any inconvenience
that it may cause.
Yoke Industrial Corporation, the manufacturer of snaphooks used on many fall
protection products industry wide, including MSA’s, recently notified MSA of an issue
involving the potential for missing or improperly installed rivets on Yoke snaphooks.
Although the photographs below depict one snaphook model, other Yoke snaphook
models are affected. The stamped “Y”, as shown below, identifies the snaphook
manufacturer.
“Y” (Yoke) Symbol
Rivets in Place Missing Rivet
Un-spun (un-crimped) Rivet Properly Secured Rivets
We are issuing this notice to you as a reminder to inspect the snaphooks on your
fall protection products before each use as indicated in the instructions and
inscribed on the snaphook. If any rivets are missing or if any rivets are not
secured on both sides of the snaphook, immediately remove the fall protection
product from service and contact MSA for replacement.
For additional information, you may access the supplier’s Product Notification at the
following link: http://www.yoke.net/english/index.asp. It includes a video describing the
improved inspection process that Yoke has implemented as a result of this issue.
If you identify any snaphooks with missing or improperly installed rivets or you have any
questions, please contact MSA Customer Service as follows:
