DMM International Recall on the Dragon Camming Device
in sizes #4 & #5
Important Safety Notice:

Dragon size 4 and 5 Recall
Last night (15th Feb 2011) DMM received information from a U.S retailer regarding size 5 (Blue) Dragon Cams. They have found cracks on the aluminium axle boss on 2 of the Dragon Cam size 5s they have in stock. This boss is a turned part similar to the original Dragon 6 that we recalled on the 22nd July 2010.
For the safety of all of our customers we are issuing an immediate recall for all Dragon Cams size 4 and 5 with turned axle bosses (see images below). At present there is no evidence that suggests the size 4 Dragon Cams are affected. However, we feel it appropriate to include them in the recall due to similarities in construction.

What you should do
If in possession of a cam as shown on the left in the pictures above, please discontinue use immediately and follow the steps below:
1. Print out this form.
2. Fill in the form.
3. Both the form and the Dragon Cams need to be sent together to DMM at one either the UK address (on the form), to the US Distributor - Excalibur (if you live in the United States) or if you live in another country - your country's DMM Distributor.

Each consumer-owned used or unused unit must be returned with the form filled out. Each consumer will receive their own repaired unit back with the new assembly. U.S. Consumers may use our UPS acct# E78 708 for GROUND shipping charges to send their units back to us directly. If a consumer does not have access to a UPS location, we can issue a Call Tag - any consumer needing a call tag must call Excalibur.

Excalibur's UPS delivery address is:

Sandy UT 84092

p. 801.942.8471
Please call or email call with questions.

Anyone who is outside the USA should send them back to DMM in Wales or to the retailer or distributor within their country with the completed form

What we will do
We promise to deal with the situation as quickly and efficiently as we can.
All units will be reassembled with a new hot forged aluminium axle boss and returned to you.
Our first and foremost priority is the safety of the climbing community. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your continued understanding and support.

More information will follow after further investigation.
