PRODUCT SAFETY RECALL: OPW Swivel Connectors

Author: Marketing/Monday, March 6, 2017/Categories: Compliance, News, Best Practices, Safety, OPW

March 2017 — OPW:

**UPDATED MAY 2017** THIS RECALL NOW INCLUDES 20S 3/4" and 1" SWIVELS

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED TO REPLACE HOSE SWIVEL CONNECTORS 

AFFECTED OPW PRODUCTS: 

  • 241 and 241C Swivel Connectors (3/4 inch and 1 inch models)* 
  • 36S Swivel Connectors (3/4 inch and 1 inch models) 

* May have been sold as part of a hose kit

Issue: In certain rare cases, the retaining rods used in these models may not perform as expected, resulting in unintended separation at the swivel connections. 

Hazard: Unintended separation at the swivel may lead to fuel spillage, posing a chemical or potential fire hazard. While regulations and warnings prohibit the presence of ignition sources at the pump, serious personal injury can result if an ignition source is nevertheless present. 

The affected swivels are branded with the model number and a manufacture date on the swivel’s end in the format of: MM-YY or MM-DD-YEAR or MM-YEAR. Only swivels with a stamped MFG date of January 2013 through March 2017 are affected. 

The affected swivels model numbers are (BOLDED items are listed in the May 2017 addendum):
