Stoneville, NC

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”), Gerbings, LLC (“Gerbings”) of Stoneville, NC is offering to inspect and repair if possible or replace if necessary certain of its 12-Volt heated jacket liners. An improperly crimped connector in the heating element in the back portion of some of the jacket liners is prone to overheating. This can cause damage to the jacket and in some cases minor burns to the wearer. The 12-Volt jacket liners subject to this recall have a PO number of 3796. The PO number can be found on the tag located on the inside lower left seam of the liner.

The 12-Volt heated jacket liners involved in this recall were imported by Gerbing’s Heated Clothing Inc., from a Chinese manufacturer in June of 2011.

As a company, Gerbing’s is committed to ensuring our customers receive the highest quality and safest merchandise. Gerbings is taking the necessary steps to address this issue. To avoid future problems, they now operate out of an 88,000 sq/ft facility in NC, and we make all of our heating elements for 12-Volt heated jacket liners in NC to ensure quality and safety. None of our United States manufactured liners are subject to the recall. Moreover, a thermistor that will help reduce the risk of overheating in the 2013 12-volt jacket liners is being installed.

Please review the included image and, if you have any questions, please call Gerbings at: 1-877-242-5595 or visit www.gerbing.com.

Join us Saturday, April 13th for the annual tire puncture repair Tech Day.

This will be a hands-on experience to repair actual punctures in tires so bring the kit from your bike and we’ll make sure you know how to use it!

During the tech day we will go over:

• Finding the leak in your tire
• Removing the object from a tire with tools you might have in your kit
• Plug the tire so you can get on the road again
• Fill the tire with air and test your repair
• Show and Tell – Bring your kit and compare it to others.

So, why wait until you are stuck on the side of the road with a flat to see if you know how to fix your own puncture?

If you are interested in attending, please let us know so he can plan for how many people to expect.
