3M™ ANZ L4548 Surface Mounted Roof Anchor Field Service Action

3M™ L4548 Roof Anchors in Australia and New Zealand need to be inspected immediately.


If you have a roof anchor that looks like the one above, immediately stop using the anchor and tag it out, and contact 3M to schedule a free inspection. If 3M determines you have a defective L4548 roof anchor, then 3M will repair or replace it for free.


At 3M, customer safety and confidence are high priorities. 3M has detected a small quantity of L4548 Surface Mounted Roof Anchors sold only in Australia and New Zealand that are defective due to an assembly error. There have been no reports of fall-related injuries associated with this condition. However, this assembly error would result in the anchor not arresting a fall, which could result in serious injury or death. Immediately stop using and tag out any L4548 roof anchors.

3M remains committed to providing quality products and services to our customers. We apologize for any inconvenience that this situation may cause. We appreciate your continued support of 3M Fall Protection products and services. For more details on the L4548 roof anchor and the potential assembly error, you can read this detailed notice.
