Park Tool Company has discovered a defect in a small percentage of PFP-2 Professional Floor Pumps (shown at right).
Under certain conditions, the check valve on the PFP-2 could fail. If this occurs, the pump's handle could quickly rise upward without warning, potentially causing injury to the user.
In order to assure that all PFP-2 owners have a safe and reliable pump, Park Tool is voluntarily recalling all PFP-2s manufactured prior to August 2003. PFP-2s included in this recall can be identified by looking at the pressure indicator ring. Pumps included in the recall have a black pressure indicator ring (see figure 1). Pumps not included in the recall have a blue pressure indicator ring (see figure 2).
If you have one of the affected PFP-2 pumps:
1. Immediately stop using your PFP-2 Floor Pump.
2. Contact Park Tool. Customer service representatives can be reached by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone, toll free, at 888-568-4959.
