What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled plate carriers and contact 5.11 for a free replacement of the cable system.

Affected products

This voluntary recall involves the 5.11 Tactec Plate Carrier, style number 56100. “5.11” is molded onto a rubber label on the front of the carriers at the bottom left. The style number is printed on a tag in the inside seam of the front pocket.  The plate carriers are used by consumers, law enforcement professionals and first responders in combination with ballistic plates. The plate carriers can also be used for outdoor fitness and weight training and can hold weighted non-ballistic plates. Only carriers with the following PO numbers are included in the recall:             

US.PO-00022756     

US.PO-00024380

US.PO-00023827

US.PO-00024621

US.PO-00024126

US.PO-00024125

The PO and style numbers are printed on a tag in the inside seam of the front pocket of the carriers.

Issue

The cable in the quick release system of the plate carrier can separate from the handle preventing swift removal of the carrier in an emergency situation, which could pose an injury hazard.

As of November 10, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
