Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
T-handle screw is used on a complementary product to the CRW, the Integra HRAIM, which is the CT-compatible intubation Head Ring Assembly. When the T-handle on the HRAIM intubation hoop is tightened, the T-handle could stop in a vertical position that prevents the CRWPRECISE and certain models of the CRW-ASL from seating properly on the head ring although it appears to be fully seated
