Black Diamond Product Recall

Black Diamond announced on 4 Feb 2016 that they would be doing a voluntary recall of a number of their carabiners and quickdraws manufactured between Dec 2014 and Jan 2016 citing that possible defects in the gate could lead to carabiner failure or malfunction.

While we have never sold Black Diamond products, we hope that you will share this information with the ropes community to make sure we're all as protected as we can be.
