Belkin has determined that certain SurgeMaster surge protectors manufactured by Powertech Industrial Co., Ltd. of Taiwan pose a safety risk that may result in the rotating plug molding and housing parts cracking or detaching from the plug assembly in rare circumstances.
The affected SurgeMaster surge protectors were sold from January 2003 through December 2003. Affected model numbers are F9G930-10, F9G930-v10, F9G930-10-W, F9G930G-CL and F9G930-10-SN.
Please note that only units manufactured in 2003 are subject to this recall. In addition, grey units, model F9G930-10-GRY and F9G930fc10G-CL, are not subject to this recall.
Belkin is voluntarily recalling the affected surge protectors and has initiated an exchange program to provide eligible customers with a new replacement surge protector, free of charge.
On the back of the unit you will notice identification wheels. In the identification wheel there is a triangle pointing to a number. If a triangle is pointing to 03 in any of the wheels and your model number is affected please order a replacement surge protector immediately.
