It has come to our attention that in some rare cases, the safety release of our kite leash may become difficult to activate, due to the buildup of sand deposits in the leash sleeve.
Kite leashes manufactured from December 2013 and sold as part of the Controller2 or as a separate product may be affected by this issue.
If you have purchased either a Kite Leash or Controller2 within this period, please read the following information.
What action should you take?
Your safety is paramount to Switch and we strongly recommend conducting a simple manual modification to your kite leash to ensure sand drains away from the safety release. Failure to keep the safety release free from sand and the risk of malfunctioning may cause or contribute to an accident and possible serious injury or death.
