On October 25th manufacturer Fixe announced a recall of PLX bolt hangers, after reports of unexpected corrosion of hangers placed in a marine environment.
Fixe Climbing gave the following safety warning:
At FIXE, we have detected a tendency towards oxidation in marine environments that is very high and unusual in some shipments of FIXE-1 PLX hangers.
The detected products have a batch number between 0116 and 2216. The first two figures are between 01 and 22 and the last two are always 16.
Thank you for trusting us and sorry for any inconvenience caused by this corrective action.
If you detect material from any of these products contact us at the email: email@example.com

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.
