This can cause the carabiners to trigger if only one of the buttons is pressed. Normally you always have to press two buttons at the same time to open the carabiner. Any quick-outs owner can easily find out if he or she may have a model from the faulty series on the harness. The corresponding test procedure is described in the official safety notice (pdf).
