Counterfeit SFI Labels Found on Kyostar Brand Harnesses

The SFI Foundation has just announced that it has found Kyostar brand harnesses displaying SFI 16.1 conformance labels, but not conforming to SFI specification 16.1. Kyostar is not enrolled in any SFI Foundation program, and the SFI labels are counterfeit.

Kyostar has not submitted a harness for testing by the SFI Foundation, but SFI purchased a Kyostar harness through Ebay, tested it, and found that it falls short of the performance requirements of SFI Specification 16.1.

During the test, the camlock buckle failed under load, releasing the seat belts. Kyostar harnesses should not used in any vehicle, and will not pass NASA tech inspection.
