April 4, 2018

The following information pertains to the following Malta Dynamics products:

  • Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRLs)
  • Lanyards
  • Harnesses
  • Cross Arm Straps
  • All Web-based productsIt has recently came to the attention of Malta Dynamics that a misprint occurred on many of their web-based products including harnesses, lanyards, cross arm straps, as well as many other products containing nylon webbing. These products were incorrectly marked as having a 5 year life span. This is not the case, and was simply a misprint on the labeling.All Malta Dynamics products – including those containing nylon webbing – can be used indefinitely upon passing the typical user inspections.To make clear:

    Any and all Malta Dynamics products that pass the required inspections per the user’s manual may be used indefinitely and does not have a limited lifespan based on date of manufacture alone.

    Malta Dynamic’s apologizes for this misprint and any inconvenience this may cause our customers. As a result:

    Any customer who has a Malta Dynamics product with the 5 year marking that is still in a reasonable “passing” condition can have it replaced upon expiration free of charge.

     Simply contact customer service and they will take care of replacing your product.
