Huntington Beach, CA-based Quickline has announced a total recall of its Boyut Marine-manufactured UFS8 Ultra Flip Swivels, designed for use with 1/4-inch and 5/16-inch anchor chains.
Produced between June 2009 and October 2010, units affected by the recall can be identified by the presence of an eagle impressed into the side of the swivel. Non-recalled units, produced prior to June 2009 and after October 2010 have a smooth body and finish. All other Ultra Flip Swivels, the UFS6, UFS10, UFS13 and larger sizes are not affected by the recall.
“Simply put, the UFS8 swivels do not meet Quickline's high quality standards and strength requirements,” said Quickline President, Randy Boelsems. “Thus, we are replacing every unit that we have sold to our customers, as their satisfaction and safety are paramount.”
Customers who own the UFS8 Ultra Flip Swivel should stop use immediately and contact Quickline to arrange a replacement unit. Once received, defective swivels should be returned to Quickline using the packaging and Federal Express label provided with the replacement unit.
For more information or to request a replacement swivel, please contact Quickline at 714-843-6964.
