Climbing gear recalled
Before you head out for a climb with friends, check to see if anyone is using Black Diamond Speed Buckle harnesses.
The company is recalling about 18,000 units because the harnesses can easily be threaded incorrectly, and climbers could slip out and fall.
The company is asking climbers to stop using the gear immediately, even though no injuries have been reported.
Do you have one? Look for these names:
The names can be found on a tag sewn inside the waist belt. The harnesses come in many colors and were sold December to July for $40-$75.
For a free replacement, call Black Diamond Equipment collect at (801) 278-5533 or see the company's web site.
