Scubapro® Recalls MK 20 Scuba Regulators for Service
The following product safety recall was voluntarily conducted by the firm in
cooperation with the CPSC. Consumers should stop using the product immediately
unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Scubapro® MK 20 First Stage Regulators
Units: About 48,500 units
Manufacturer: Scubapro® USA, of El Cajon, Calif.

Hazard: Over-tightening of the Yoke or Din retainer during annual servicing of these
regulators could result in a stress crack and failure of the regulator. If this occurs during a
dive, air supply could be interrupted, posing a drowning hazard.
Incidents/injuries: No injuries or underwater incidents have been reported. Scubapro®
USA has received eight reports of units that failed after being serviced.
Description: The recall involves first stage regulators that are marked with the Scubapro
brand and identified as the MK20.
Sold at: Authorized Scubapro® dealers nationwide from January 1996 through
December 2001 for about $260.
Manufactured in: Italy and United States
Remedy: Scubapro® USA has been providing a service upgrade kit via the authorized
dealer network since May 2005 which contains a Yoke or Din retainer that prohibits
over-tightening during annual service. Consumers can easily identify if the service
upgrade has been completed by counting the vents on the plastic saddle located on the
regulator. If the service upgrade has not been completed, the consumer should bring the
regulator to any authorized Scubapro® dealer to have the service upgrade completed free
of charge.

Consumer Contact: For assistance in locating the nearest authorized Scubapro® dealer
or for more information, contact Scubapro® USA toll-free at (800) 731-6685 between
8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or go to the firm’s Web site at
