The swivels were manufactured and distributed nationwide between May 1983 and May 1986. Approximately 31,000 Model 33-C's and 53,000 Model 34's may still be in service. Both are clearly marked with the model number. OPW's distributors and customers are advised not to sell or use OPW Models 33-C or 34 Swivels still in use or in stock.
