Liberty Mountain Recalls Mountain Climbing Lanyards: Risk of Serious Injury and Death

March 14th, 2013 Uncategorized

Product Name:

Easy Go XP Lock Via Ferrata Lanyards

Reason for Recall:

The elastic webbing on these lanyards can deteriorate over time and break while in use. This poses a great risk of serious injury and death to climbers. These lanyards are sold as a safety tool for climbing; when they fail to function properly climbers do not have anything to protect them in the event of a fall.

 

Description:

This recall involves Easy Go XP Lock Via Ferrata Lanyards used for shock absorption on Via Ferrata mountain climbing routes. The lanyard has two elasticized webbing branches with self-locking carabiners at each end. Recalled units can be identified by the elasticized webbing. “EASY GO XP LOCK” is printed on a white tag sewn into the zipper pouch.

Distributed at:

Online at Amazon.com and other internet retailers as well as specialty climbing shops nationwide between April 2011 to August 2012 for about $120.

Consumers should stop using this equipment immediately and contact Liberty Mountain for a full refund or replacement. Liberty Mountain can be reached at (800) 366-2666 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or online at www.libertymountain.com. Click on “Contact Us” for more information.
