Recall and substitution: Carabiner Salewa Salewa Hot G2 – series 02 11 and 03 11

28.07.2011 by Planetmountain

Salewa has emitted a recall and substition for the carabiner Salewa Hot G2 Bent colour 0999/ red Article Code: 1557 – limited to the serial numbers 02 11 and 03 11

This is the text issued by Salewa:

RECALL FOR REPLACEMENT: SALEWA HOT G2 BENT CarabineR/ item number 1557
only the serial number 02 11 / 03 11
The carabiner model Hot G2 Bent is affected by the recall.
The carabiners concerned have the following properties:
Item number: 1557 Hot G2 Bent Colour: 0999/ rot
Hot G2 Bent carabiners with the following production serial numbers are affected:
02 11 / 03 11
These numbers are stamped near the info of breaking load (see illustration) or on the opposite side of the carabiner next to the certification number.
This precautionary recall concerns only the carabiner itself. There were no original SALEWA express sets produced with the carabiners concerned. Thus original SALEWA express sets are NOT affected by the recall.

Background:
SALEWA regularly conducts tests on its safety products to ensure the highest standards of quality and safety. As part of these quality control procedures carabiners are tested for their loading capacity. During testing, the Hot G2 Bent carabiner deviated in its lateral axis breaking load from the norm values.
Important note: The test was conducted under extreme conditions, which are highly unlikely to occur in practice. As a precautionary measure, SALEWA has decided to recall all Hot G2 Bent carabiners from the market to prevent any risks for the user.

Owners of these carabiners are asked to contact a SALEWA dealer or SALEWA Sportgeräte GmbH.
The carabiners specified above will be immediately replaced with new carabiners.

Note: Only Hot G2 Bent carabiners with the above mentioned product serial numbers will be exchanged. No other carabiners are affected by the recall.

Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any other queries about this recall.
