Proposition 65

What is Proposition 65?

Proposition 65 is the result of a law passed in California in 1986, referred to as the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, or more generally referred to as "Proposition 65" or "Prop 65" for short.

By law, the State of California requires the Proposition 65 warning to be present on any product packaging when the products may contain one or more of the hundreds of chemicals listed in the Proposition 65 database. 

What chemicals do Quad Lock products contain? 

Some of our products are manufactured from Polycarbonate (PC). Polycarbonate is a very common plastic and is widely used to make drink bottles, sunglasses, baby bottles white goods, and many other products.  Polycarbonate contains Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical listed on the Proposition 65 database. 

As our products are not intended to be used for storing or consuming liquid/food, potential exposure to BPA is greatly reduced. 

Why do you have this warning on products which are sold outside of California? 

We take a global approach to our packaging design, hence you will see the Prop 65 warning on all our products, even if you purchased the products outside of California / USA.
