Newsflash: SRAM recalls powerlinks Jan 2009. Recalled powerlinks are still being sold

EDIT: Apparently I had gotten some of my information wrong... BUT, my SRAM PC850 Powerlink (8speed) cracked on the side plates causing them to lose tension on the locking pins and fall out just like what was happening with the 10 speed chains. Please everyone make sure your powerlinks are secure and not cracked making them dysfunctional.

Note that only the SRAM PowerLock is under recall. The PowerLock is the 10-speed width, so it wouldn't be able to fit your 8-speed chain. Here's the official recall info, for those who're interested: http://www.sram.com/_media/pdf/service/PowerLock.pdf

Very true! It seems as though I have some of my info backwards. What is weird is that my link upon inspection does have a crack in both plates causing the link to lose tension.
