On February 15, 2006, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) issued its Safety Recommendation H-06-8 to all manufacturers and marketers of automatic slack adjusters and manufacturers of vehicles equipped with air brakes. Below is an excerpt from a technical bulletin from Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC.
"WARNING: Manual adjustment of automatic slack adjusters is a dangerous practice that could have serious consequences, because it can give the operator a false sense of security about the effectiveness of the brakes, which are likely to go out of adjustment again soon. Do not make manual adjustments of an automatic slack adjuster once it can no longer automatically adjust the brakes. Manual adjustment DOES NOT fix the underlying wheel end adjustment again. As soon as possible, have the vehicle inspected by a qualified technician or consult the manufacturer’s troubleshooting guidelines to find and fix the problem.”
