What is the problem?

The lock button on the probe can fail to engage and lock, causing the probe not to function as intended. This can interfere with finding someone buried beneath snow, posing a suffocation hazard.

How can I tell if I own this product?

The probe is divided into six or eight sections of 18-inch aluminum shafts that lock into place to create a single 94-inch or 126-inch probe, depending on the model. The probe is used by searchers to help identify something or someone buried by snow after an avalanche. "Striker 320" is printed on the red and gray probe and "Striker 240" is printed on the yellow and gray probe. "MSR" is printed on the shaft.

These items were sold new+ at REI and other outdoor recreation stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and other websites from September 2014 through January 2016 for between $60 and $70.
