Service bulletin: RSL/Ty-17 Riser Bulletin
Pending further test data availability, Rigging Innovations is placing a weight limitation on TY-17 main risers with the RSL option in use, of 175# (80kg) body weight or 200# (90kg) gross weight. Those individuals who exceed this weight must disconnect the RSL release shackle. It is recommended that a licensed rigger remove the lanyard entirely until further data is available. It is not necessary to have the reserve repacked to remove the lanyard. Removal of the lanyard may be accomplished, the reserve resealed, and an appropriate note made on the packing data card by an appropriately rated and licensed rigger.
