  • U.S. or Canadian government department, agency or activity.

What is a Safe-Alert? A Safe-Alert is a reporting method for “suspect counterfeit” parts and components.

 

Who can see a Safe-Alert? Any GIDEP member.

 

Can Safe-Alerts be shared with non-GIDEP members? No, we are not authorized to share this with any non-GIDEP member.

 

Who initiated the Safe-Alert? DMC initiated the Safe-Alert on two Chinese companies (Iwiss and Precise Tool) that are involved in the manufacturing and distribution of counterfeit, non-qualified MIL-SPEC M22520 tools.

 

Why did DMC initiate this Safe-Alert? DMC has been committed to providing the highest quality, USA made, MIL-SPEC crimp tooling for over 65 years. Our products are used in virtually every product or service that involves High Reliability Wiring Systems. Our tools are tested to the highest industry standards as required by our customers. We take this responsibility very seriously and feel that it is our responsibility to alert the users of our products when there is a counterfeit product that may not meet or has not adhered to the similar testing and quality assurances.

 

How do you know if the product you have is an authentic DMC/OEM tool? The customer should look for the Daniels Manufacturing Corporation label, Made in USA and engraved cage code on the tool frame. (See images in attached documents)

 

Is this limited to M22520 Mil-Spec tools? The current Safe-Alerts are limited to the M22520 and does not include other product lines. However, the user should verify that they have authentic DMC products.

 

Who should be contacted at DMC for more information? Matt Bohannon, 407-855-6161, matthewb@dmctools.com.
