Roof brackets pose falling hazard

Health Canada is recalling the Extreme Roof Bracket because some have faulty pins that hold the mechanism in place.
The brackets, made by Roofers World Inc. of Ottawa, are used on sloped roofs and are meant to support a board that is used as a working platform. However, because some of the brackets were manufactured without tack welds, they pose a falling hazard.
Tests by the manufacturer found the mechanism may fail when used on steep pitches while supporting considerable weight.
About 3,247 Extreme Brackets were sold across Canada between March 31, 2008 and August 27, 2008.
No injuries have been reported related to the recalled items.
