Black Diamond Equipment Ltd. in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), voluntarily issued a recall, subject to user inspection, of 18mm Nylon Runners 60cm/24in (Style Number 380060) and 18mm Nylon Runners 120cm/48in (Style Number 380061) because of a possibility that the Nylon Runner is not load-bearing and will fail under standard use. This recall concerns nylon runners with a manufacturing code of 2014 or 2015, which is found on the sewn in label. This recall is due to a small number of Nylon Runners found to contain a tape splice, resulting in a product that is not load-bearing and will fail under standard use.
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 any nylon runners that fall within the scope of this recall, Black Diamond is requesting that you inspect them following the procedures outlined on their website. If your runners fail inspection, stop use immediately and contact your place of purchase. They will replace your carabiners/quickdraws free of charge.
