Hi Mike from SICG here. The known facts that have come out so far are:

- lyndon was using the device normally i.e he let go about 2 m from the top and when he
weighted the device he came down fast.
- he's in hospital getting scans and will need an operation - he has heel/ankle injuries.
- we've sent all the devices we have (6) including the failed one back to the manufacturer
MSA. MSA Australia has said that the device will be sent to their headquarters in the
US for inspection.
- we have followed the manufacturer MSA's instructions and have had them serviced and
inspected by MSA every 12 mths or less. This one was serviced, inspected and had its
strap replaced as standard procedure in May 09. We have generally been satisfied with
their performance - we have had them here between 2 yrs and 3 yrs. This incident
changes how we think about them obviously. We are dismayed about what has
happened and probably won't be re-installing them although we need to know the reason
it failed.
- I would hope that MSA will recall all of these installed in Australia, but if they don't I
wouldn't be using them in other gyms until MSA releases more information about the
cause of the failure. I would also advise other gym owners to take them down even if
MSA don't advise you to.
- we will post any information that is forthcoming from MSA on chockstone as soon as
we hear it.
- in the meantime we hope Lyndon has a good recovery.
