DMM has issued a recall of some of its locking carabiners, subject to user inspection. Read on to find out which models are affected and how to return any potentially faulty carabiners.
In a small percentage of carabiners, the interaction between the internal coil spring (which gives the gate its closing action) and the spring pusher (the component that holds the spring against the carabiner body) may cause the spring pusher to displace, potentially preventing the gate from closing or the mechanism from locking completely.
Which carabiners are affected?
To find out which carabiners are affected, and how to inspect them, see the DMM Product Recall Notice
How do I return a carabiner?
To find out how customers can return any potentially faulty carabiners in their possession to DMM, see the Recall Returns Procedure
DMM would like to assure customers that it is working hard to minimise the time you are without your carabiner(s), and apologises for any inconvenience caused.
