STRIKE FIRST CORPORATION OF AMERICA
SERVICE BULLETIN #002
First retrofit program
Strike First Corporation of America (“Strike First”) is issuing Service Bulletin #002 as a supplement to Service Bulletin #001 issued in August 2004. Strike First has determined that the valve stem seat in a number of its 2.5 and 5 lb fire extinguishers assembled between December 2002 and February 2004 may prevent the extinguisher from discharging properly when the lever is activated. As a result of this condition, Strike First has initiated a fire extinguisher retro-fit program for these units. RETRO-FIT KITS ARE AVAILABLE FREE OF CHARGE BY CONTACTING YOUR LOCAL STRIKE FIRST DISTRIBUTOR, OR BY CONTACTING STRIKE FIRST DIRECTLY.
