 Blog, Gear, Retail  Comments Off on Black Diamond Issues Recall For Camalots, Ascenders, Via Ferrata Lanyard Sets
Apr 132016

Attention climbers! We’re sharing a recall alert for Black Diamond products. The company is voluntarily recalling some Camalots and Camalot Ultralights, as well as Ascenders and Via Ferrata lanyard sets.

There haven’t been accidents reported with the products in question, but the company is asking retailers and customers to inspect their products for defects.

Please inspect your Black Diamond gear, as seen above, and using the guidelines below.  Then contact Black Diamond directly to exchange gear.

Here is the Black Diamond advisory for each product:

Camalots™–Click for product recall details
All sizes (.3 to 6) produced between May 18, 2015 and March 9, 2016 with manufacturing codes between 5133 and 6067. This recall also concerns all sizes of Camalot™ Ultralights (.4 to #4) produced between November 10, 2015 and March 4, 2016, with manufacturing codes between 5309 and 6061. Indvidual style numbers of the different sizes are listed below.

In a very small percentage of Camalot™ and Camalot™ Ultralights, the axles connecting the cam lobes to the stem may not be properly riveted. This could cause the device’s strength to be compromised, and it could possibly come apart during use.

Ascenders–Click for product recall details
This recall concerns both the right (style number 620003) and left (style number 620004) versions of the Index Ascenders manufactured between December 22, 2014 and February 25, 2016, with manufacturing codes between 4356 and 6015.

In some Index Ascenders, the rivet attaching the toothed cam to the ascender body may not be properly finished. This could cause the cam to become detached, allowing the ascender to disconnect from the rope. There is also the potential that the rivet attaching the plastic safety catch to the cam may not be properly finished, increasing the likelihood that the ascender could become detached from the rope.

Via Ferrata Lanyard Sets–Click for product recall details
Easy Rider Via Ferrata Set (style number 620105) and the Iron Cruiser Via Ferrata Set (style number 620110) manufactured between October 26, 2015 and January 18, 2016, with manufacturing codes between 5293 and 5350. Iron Cruiser Via Ferrata Packages (style number 620122) are also affected.

In a very small number of via ferrata lanyards, the security stitching (three orange bar tacks that attach the carabiners to the lanyards) may not be present, which would result in immediate failure of the lanyard under body weight.
