If you are using Black Diamond Carabiners you should check out this recall
Thanks for the heads up! Will be checking all of my climbing and hammocking gear tonight.
Thanks for posting this. I was about to make the same post, but I see ya beat me to it. I checked my BD carabiners, and they're alright with no irregularities. Good looking out!
Thanks gunner !!
I only have one BD but it's an important one (primary locking the harness to overhead line, backup is a MadRock), part of the portable zip line kit I setup for the nieces and nephews when we go camping.
Have sherpas, will travel...
Thank you for this notice. I have more than several BD biners. Just looked and all are ok. This recall does not help the company's (former) reputation. When I looked for definitely USA-made only biners earlier this year, I was surprised how hard they were to find. One post on a forum said that BD was returning to American manufacture some time in 2016. Rumor, for what it's worth.
