New recovery (snatch) straps mandatory safety standards

Post by widemr »

Today i went into 2 different well known 4x chains to buy another snatch strap and they had none, one store indicated they had been recalled due to labels not to standards.

I found out that in Dec 2017 the Australian Consumer Goods Safety Standards for recovery straps for vehicles was updated to include new warning text, details and new warning logos, they gave manufacturers / importers a 2 year grace period before they will be forced to comply with new lables attached to the straps. This grace period ended 1st Dec 2019, so as of 2nd Dec 2019 (last week) now all straps sold in Australia must comply with the new standards.
