According to numerous news organizations throughout the nation, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recently issued a recall for Porter Athletic Climbing Ropes with the support of the item’s producer, Porter Athletic. This recall was issued over probable fall and injury hazards this model of climbing ropes could potentially pose to users.
The federal agency responsible for overlooking consumer products has uncovered that the recall is due to a mechanical malfunction that is found in the attachment that links the sliding line with the clamp. According to the official recall announcement, the rope could slip unexpectedly, which could cause users to get hurt. This particular recall was deemed necessary because it could be the source of injuries and other complications.
At least three descriptions of incidents connected to these defective climbing ropes have emerged. One of the reports described injuries that were caused as a result of this rope sliding unexpectedly from its clamp while it was in use. As of now, Porter Athletic Climbing Ropes are prohibited from being marketed in retailers throughout the country.
All customers with this item in their possession are recommended to call the manufacturer if they have any queries connected to this recall alert.
The defective ropes can be identified by the numbers 00118 and 00119. All recalled units were sold between September 2009 and September 2011.
Hopefully, no other injuries will be reported in association with this product.
