Product Recall Notice for Flash™ Hook 300980 and FlashLite™ Hook 300981: During product validation testing of a newly developed escape hook, CMC discovered the test fixture used to certify the existing Flash™ Hooks and FlashLite™ Hooks unintentionally influenced the NFPA 1983 strength results when tested at Underwriters Laboratory (UL). Ongoing testing indicates that in some applications Flash™ Hooks and FlashLite™ Hooks may be lower in strength than the Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) marked on the products.

Delivering outstanding strength with minimal weight, the innovative FlashLite Hook escape anchor is the lightest Escape Use-certified model available. The hook’s ergonomic design and slim .375” frame size offers the narrowest profile available. The distinct patented shape allows firm, full-hand grip on top for rapid deployment and placement, and when loaded, directs the spine toward flat surfaces for a sturdy attachment on structural lumber and window ledges. Swift girth hitching around various anchor points is achieved with the substantial slotted handle. The captive eye provides greater anchoring versatility and the 10 mm attachment hole accepts most escape cord or web. Machined from solid aircraft-grade, high-strength aluminum, it features a bright red anodized finish. When it comes to fast and secure egress, the FlashLite Hook is the solid, compact and lightweight choice for personal escape.
