SCOTT is advising all owners of Air-Pak SCBA equipped with Heads-Up
Display of the availability of a user installable Anti-Rotation Clamp.

TO: Owners of SCOTT® SCBA Equipped with Heads-Up Display
FROM: Rick Hofmeister
SUBJECT: Addition of Anti-Rotation Clamp
DATE: May 8, 2008
TB: 20080805
SCOTT has determined through examination of warranty returns, that the electrical connection
found on the low pressure hoses used on the Air-Pak® Fifty SCBA and 2.2/3.0/4.5
Air-Pak® SCBA equipped with a Heads-up Display (HUD) may wear prematurely under
heavy use conditions. SCOTT Engineers have reviewed this condition and determined
that repeated rotation of the regulator and low pressure hose at the HUD connection
contributes to such premature wear of the electrical connector. As a result, SCOTT is
releasing an Anti-Rotation Clamp which will eliminate the repeated twisting of the low
pressure hose. SCOTT is advising all owners of Air-Pak® SCBA equipped with Heads-Up Display of the
availability of a user installable Anti-Rotation Clamp. The Anti-Rotation Clamp is available
in two configurations dependent on the type of reducer outlet to low pressure hose connection
found on the SCOTT Air-Pak® SCBA.

Once the Anti-Rotation Clamp is installed, the movement of the low pressure hose at the
electrical connection is limited eliminating stress from repeated twisting on this connection.
Through a special program, SCOTT is making the Anti-Rotation Clamp available at no
charge for owners who have experienced premature wear at the electrical connection of
the low pressure hose. To obtain quantities of the Anti-Rotation Clamps sufficient to outfit
all your SCOTT SCBA, simply complete the attached Customer Claim Form and return it
to SCOTT Health and Safety either via FAX or by mailing the completed form to the
address listed. Anti-Rotation Clamps will be sent directly to your department. SCOTT is committed to the safety and satisfaction of the people who use our products
everyday. Should you have any questions concerning this program, please feel free to
contact your SCOTT Regional Manager or Technical Support Team Member.
