The problem

Capital Safety has recalled its DBI-SALA Lad-Saf™ cable sleeves as potential misuse may cause the user to fall.

Misuse includes interference with the braking mechanism (eg. cords, lanyards, clothing or other materials getting caught, or grabbing the sleeve before or during a fall) and the user attaching the sleeve upside down.

Capital Safety has stopped selling all original Lad-Saf™ sleeves.
