Warning: FAKE TAKATA HARNESS - DO YOU HAVE ONE?

Recommended Posts

forum_header.jpg

 

It has come to my attention that there is fake Takata Harness circulating in Australia.

 

 

This is just a warning to anyone to be careful whom they buy from. Check out their credential as the last thing you want is to be victim of the scam.

 

Fake products are not limited to Takata products and anything that is popular and well-known, potentially there will be copy of it.

 

 

 

This is a warning for buyers to be alert and if it is too cheap.. maybe it is too good to be true..

 

 

 

I happen to get hold of one of the fake harness and compare it to the real one that im selling. Just for your info.

Buddy, sure theyre different, but how dou know its not because theyre not the older version ?? Because, if you do your research, TAKATA had an upgrade in the appearance of their harness AND looking at the expiry date on the 'fake' one on the right, its in 2010, meaning it was made before their range update in early 2006.

 

Above are several sites that contains pics of Takata harnesses with the same appearance as the 'fake'

all takata harness should have "takata" words embossed at the back.

also i am aware takata has a new version of harness.

 

this excercise is not against any trader. did i name anyone? no.

 

nor i point to anyone? no

 

also the picture is taken personally. i dont steal someone picture. i am able to see it with my own eye but unfortunately i dont have the real old version to compare. but if you look at the stiching. it is just off. the workmanship is nowhere to the real thing.

 

this is just a warning for buyers to be vigilant.

 

there is fake brides seat, work wheels, rays wheels.. the list goes on.

one more thing, all harness will have unique serial number just like your money which has serial number

 

so if you see number 1E25 around... be wary
