Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves certain Simond Rocky Screwgate Carabiners, sold Blue and Yellow (shown above).

  • These recalled “snap hook” climbing essentials were sold in Blue (item number 1759997) and in Yellow (item number 1760147). Each of the Carabiners has the phrase, “SIMOND ROCKY” stamped into the long side of the device.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to Health Canada, in rare cases, the Carabiner’s Screwgate (the dark component seen in the above graphic) was incorrectly assembled. This defect can cause unpredictable unlocking when in operation, possibly causing the climber to fall from height. If this defect occurs, it can cause serious injury or death. As of July 26th, 2019, however, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Simond Rocky Screwgate Carabiners, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
