AustriAlpin Delta Karabiner Precautionary Recall

Categories // Safety Notices

Act now for free replacement!

AustriAlpin Delta Karabiner Precautionary Recall

In the course of routine tests anomalies in strength of the major axis was observed on several pieces. Caused by inhomogeneous raw material, minimal stress cracks can occur on the bends. These cracks can be tricky to spot, because they do not occur immediately.
Due to following tests and analysis, and in consequence of this, to avoid any risk to our customers, AustriAlpin has decided to take a precautionary extension of the current recall "DELTA carabiner"

Immediately stop using them!
