Narrative
Describe in detail what happened including the concern or potential issue, the environment (weather, terrain, fire behavior, etc), and the resulting health issue.
Still MS 461 E-clips keep falling out or breaking while running. This appears to be metal fatigue of some sort. The metal on these e-clips does not maintain tension on the retaining washer for very long. These e-clips loosen up to the point that the can easily be put in place by hand, and can be removed by merely placing a finger nail under them.
Immediate Action Taken
Reporting Individual : please describe actions you took to correct or mitigate the unsafe/unhealthful event.
Looking to have the vendor replace the remaining e-clips with new ones from another lot.
