We have just been informed of a safety notice on the AustriAlpin Cobra buckles. Very small quantities of the COBRA® buckles manufactured have been found to be riveted incorrectly (0.0000005% = 1 out of 2 million).
This is relevant for any Abaris International who has bought any of the following products which contain these buckles:
LSYNRAS Lyon Synergy Restricted Access Stretcher

AustriAlpin have requested that a visual inspection is carried out on all of their COBRA® buckles. Guidance on how to carry out
the inspection can be found here.
