Black Diamond: Recalls Via Ferrata Sets

Black Diamond recalls, subject to user inspection, of Easy Rider and Iron Cruiser Via Ferrata Lanyard sets because of the possibility of defects in the stitching that could cause the lanyard to fail, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

This recall concerns the Easy Rider Via Ferrata Set (style number 620105) and the Iron Cruiser Via Ferrata Set (style number 620110) manufactured between October 26, 2015 and January 18, 2016, with manufacturing codes between 5293 and 5350. Iron Cruiser Via Ferrata Packages (style number 620122) are also affected.

In a very small number of via ferrata lanyards, the security stitching (three orange bar tacks that attach the carabiners to the lanyards) may not be present, which would result in immediate failure of the lanyard under body weight.

No accidents have been reported; however, in the interest of customer safety, Black Diamond has decided to voluntarily issue a recall, subject to user inspection.

If you own via ferrata lanyards that fall within the scope of this recall, Black Diamond is requesting that you STOP USE IMMEDIATELY, and inspect them following the procedures below. If they fail inspection, please contact Black Diamond. Black Diamond will replace your lanyards free of charge.
