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.

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.
As the climbing walls, crags and mountains start to open, we wanted to say thanks to every BMC member who supported us through the Coronavirus crisis.
From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t have made it without you.
