Halycon Manufacturing Recalls Diving Equipment Due to Drowning Hazard to Divers

Halycon Manufacturing has recalled various items of diving equipment due to a drowning hazard to divers as a result of possible failure of over pressure values (OPVs) which allow the buoyancy compensator devices (BCDs) and diver lift inflatable devices to leak. The items involved in this recall include the Halcyon Explorer, Eclipse, CCR35, Evolve and Pioneer Buoyancy Compensator Devices (BCDs) and Halcyon Surface Marker Buoys (SMBs), Lift Bags, Diver Alert Markers (DAMs) Surf Shuttle and Diver Lift Raft Inflatable Devices. “Halcyon” is printed on the diving equipment. The equipment subject to his recall was sold between January 2006 through December 2008 by various diving equipment retailers and distributors ranging in price between $350 to $450 for buoyancy compensator devices (BCDs) and $50 to $275 for inflatable devices. Consumers should immediately stop using recalled diving equipment and return it to an authorized Halcyon distributor or dealer for a free inspection and, if necessary, free replacement of the overpressure valve spring. For more information, contact Halcyon at 800.425.2966 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or consult the Halycon's web site at or via email at
