We wish to inform you that the TPR knuckle guard on a small number of Dirty Rigger Protector Framer and Protector Full-Finger gloves may have been produced too thin. As a result, the glove may not meet the requirements of EN388:2016 Impact Protection. Therefore, the user may be more likely to receive an injury in the event of a blow to the knuckles.
If you require EN388:2016 protection for the knuckle area, we recommend you no longer use the glove and contact us for a replacement or refund.
However, if EN388:2016 Impact Protection is not required, we are not aware of any other reason why the glove is not safe to continue using and you do not need to take any further action. However, we ask that all resellers and distributors remove any remaining stock from sale and contact your account manager. Furthermore, resellers and distributors should forward this safety notice to their relevant customers.
The items affected have the following batch numbers: 014028, 015297, 015507, 015582, 015679, 015921, 016037, 016075, 016603, 016605, 016809, 016811, 017083, 017441, 017698, 017971, 018034, 018367, 018481, 018603, 018726, 018900, 019025, 019265, 019461.
Note: some customers have their Protector Gloves custom branded. As a result, the appearance may vary from those shown above. If in doubt, please contact us.
