Black Diamond Equipment, Ltd, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), voluntarily issued a recall of carabiners, quickdraws, and nylon runners because of possible product irregularities. The recall is subject to user inspection.
Details on the recall include the following:
In some carabiners, the gate rivets (in solid gate carabiners) and wire ends (in wiregate carabiners) attaching the gate to the carabiner body may not be properly manufactured, potentially resulting in the gate becoming detached. Additionally, in some screwgate carabiners, the locking sleeve may not have been correctly assembled.
The recall related to the nylon runners is due to a small number found to contain a tape slice, resulting in a product that is not load bearing and will fail under standard use.
No accidents have been reported. Users are asked to inspect their equipment and return products in question to Black Diamond for a replacement.
