Product Safety Advisories

Upon receipt of new gear and before each days climbing, always take
a close look at every piece of climbing gear: helmet, harness, rope, 'biners, runners and protection. Verify that it is assembled correctly
(ie the carabiner fitted properly thru the quick draw sling), operates smoothly (carabiner gates and cam triggers) and is free of dents, dings, cuts or burns (helmets, runners, rope). If you ever question any piece of equipment, set it aside and consider retiring and destroying it. Click the
