Black Diamond has issued a voluntary recall for inspection of Easy Rider and Iron Cruiser Via Ferrata lanyard sets, Index Ascenders, Camalots and Camalot Ultralights.
This is in addition to Black Diamond’s February recall of carabiners and slings.
“The number of affected units found is extremely small and no incidents or injuries have been reported,” Black Diamond reported in a press release. “As
an example, tens of thousands of Camalots™ have been produced in our Salt Lake City factory since repatriation, and we have found only one unit
that did not meet our critical quality requirements.
“Nonetheless, our legacy of excellence and commitment to the climbing community compels us to take extraordinary measures to ensure products in the field
meet all necessary safety requirements.”
“As a company of climbers, we know the paramount importance of trusting your equipment. We are proactively mobilizing our entire global organization to
ensure the quality of our product. You can expect that we will do this with rigor, honesty and transparency.”
