Voluntary recall of some Escape Gear seat covers

Due to a global convergence in motor vehicle safety standards regarding airbags, new production techniques and customer feedback, Escape Gear, in terms of the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008, elects to voluntarily recall some seat covers, on the basis that they could interfere with the seat side airbag deployment in the event of a side impact motor vehicle collision.

Customers with the seat covers listed below are requested to contact Escape Gear, who will make plans for the return of said seat covers. The seat covers will be modified and returned; there is no charge involved.

Escape Gear will be running a series of recall print and electronic announcements, and in order to cast the net as wide as possible, people are kindly requested to advise any known customers with these covers, of the recall.. Escape Gear is offering, as incentive, a document holder to the value of R250, to each customer who returns his/her seat covers for modification.

The seat covers Escape Gear elects to recall are:
