Attention all Stunt Riggers, Stunt Pullers, Stunt Performers & Stunt Coordinators
A joint recall with Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and Black Diamond Equipment, Ltd. has been issued.
Product recall: Black Diamond brand carabiners and nylon runners
- Black Diamond brand carabiners
The gate assembly on affected carabiners may not function correctly. This can result in a carabiner that provides lower-than-expected strength.
An improperly functioning gate could also allow the rope to become detached from the carabiner.
- Black Diamond brand nylon runners
These nylon runners may have been manufactured using a tape splice that connects parts of the runners together. The tape splice will fail during use.
