Hunter Safety System Recalls Carabiners Due to Fall Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Carabiners

Units: About 16,000

Manufacturer: Hunter Safety System of Danville, Ala.

Hazard: The pins in the carabiners can detach, causing a climbing strap to break free from the safety harness. This can result in the climber falling.

Incidents/Injuries: The company is aware of two reports of the carabiner pins detaching. No falls or injuries have been reported.

Description: The 2010 Year HSS Ultra-Lite carabiners were supplied with the HSS-300 Ultra-Lite full body climbing safety harness. The carabiners are black with a pin sticking out of the gate. They have "CB20101" stamped on the side opposite the gate.

Sold at: Outdoor hunting retailers and directly from the company via telephone and the company's website at www.huntersafetysystem.com from June 2010 through September 2010 for about $100.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the carabiners and return them to the company for a free replacement.
