Subject: [4wd-clubs] ACCC Product Safety Recalls Australia - Hercules 8, 000 kg & 11, 000 kg Snatch Straps
Importance: High

Dear All,
There is a serious safety recall on several snatch straps which fall exceedingly short of their advertised / labelled product ratings; breaking snatch straps can result in injury or death. The use of these snatch straps should cease immediately and be returned to their place of purchase for a full refund.

The snatch straps are Hercules 8,000kg and Hercules 11,000kg which have been sold through 4WD Supacentre, Tigerz11, and Express Publications Pty Ltd.

4WD Queensland would like to advise all club members and general 4WD enthusiasts throughout Queensland, that purchasing cheap, highly discounted products from online websites is not the preferred way to purchase quality recovery or safety equipment, regardless of whether the online website is located in Australia, as many of the cheap items on sale would most likely originate from outside of Australia, and may not meet our build and quality standards.

When purchasing 4WD recovery or other safety equipment, 4WD Queensland recommends you initially visit your local 4WD parts specialist shop and discuss your recovery requirements, and review the offerings of quality, and well-known brands from the local retail outlets. Certainly shop around and compare your options, however highly discounted online prices should lead 4WD owners to question the quality of materials and testing processes being used in these cheaper offerings.

Always ask a reseller what country their products were manufactured, and what Australian standards and processes are used to test the quality and integrity of these products.

Don't skimp on quality when the safety of someone's life depends on it.

Kind regards,

Miles Brennan
