Title: Customer Bulletin

Subject: Broken Blast Doors

Release Date: May 5, 2014

TASER cartridges are designed for the blast doors to break off when the cartridge is deployed to allow for the probes to travel unimpeded to engage the target. The blast doors are attached as securely as possible while still allowing break away upon firing. With the vast improvements made to the chemical formula of the plastics, along with the state of the art automated equipment, blast doors may still occasionally break off prior to firings when subjected to field use.

Although broken blast doors are not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, TASER offers a Blast Door Replacement Kit. This kit provides agencies with the ability to adequately remove and replace fractured blast doors that are broken off after delivery. Included in the kit are:

  • repair procedures defining the safety protocols and replacement process
  • detailed warnings concerning the safety risks of not following the procedures when working with cartridges that can deploy unexpectedly when exposed to static electricity
  • enough replacement plastics to repair 50 cartridges.

The repairs should only be completed by a TASER certified instructor or technician.

Effective May 5, 2014 the TASER website RMA page will be changed to include a dedicated section applicable to broken blast doors with a statement that they are not covered under warranty and how to request the Blast Door Replacement Kit.

Thank you very much for your understanding and we appreciate your support.
