Quickline, an importer of marine gear and accessory products, announced a total recall of Boyut Marine-manufactured UFS8 Ultra Flip Swivels designed for use with 1/4-inch and 5/16-inch anchor chains.

Produced between June 2009 and October 2010, the UFS8 is easy to identify. All recalled units have a molded eagle on the side of the swivel. Non-recalled units, produced prior to June 2009 and after October 2010 have a smooth body and finish.

All other Ultra Flip Swivels - the UFS6, UFS10, UFS13 and larger sizes - are not affected by the recall.

"Simply put, the UFS8 swivels do not meet Quickline's high quality standards and strength requirements," Quickline USA president Randy Boelsems said in a statement. "Thus we are replacing every unit that we have sold to our customers, as their satisfaction and safety are paramount."
