Suunto Recalls Dive Computer Hoses

from the September, 2013 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

The Finland-based company just issued a limited recall on one specific batch of high-pressure rubber hoses that comes with various dive computers. The reason: The U.S.-made rubber is defective, causing the hose to leak or rupture, and leading to a higher-than-normal loss of air. Suunto apparently caught the problem during the manufacturing process; no known injuries have been reported.

The suspect batch is #1812, and the number is stamped on the hose. Products that use this high-pressure hose include Cobra, Cobra 3, SM-36 pressure gauges and gauge combos, as well as Vyper and Zoop when purchased as dive computer combo products.

Suunto officials say don't dive with this hose, and are instructing all customers who bought any of the products listed above after November 2012 to look at the manufacturing batch code number on the hose. If it lists #1812, return the computer for a free hose change. Either bring it to the nearest Suunto dealer, or use the company's Online Service Request ( ) to get your computer picked up and delivered for the hose change.
