A climber discovered missing structural sewing on a DMM Brenin Harness.If you own a DMM climbing harness, the company has issued a request for user inspection:

“Following the discovery of missing structural sewing on a DMM Brenin Harness during
a routine inspection by an end user, we are issuing the following information to users of all DMM harnesses, and asking them to carry out a visual
inspection on the key structural sewing on their harnesses,” DMM reports.

“This is the first instance of this product fault in the history of DMM harness production. As both the manufacturing and quality control processes on
the Brenin are shared with our other harness models, we feel that issuing a precautionary instruction advising climbers to check all DMM harnesses
is the appropriate response.

“Upon notification of the missing structural sewing, DMM immediately initiated a full investigation and quality control audit on harness production, carried
out a 100 percent re-inspection of all harness stock, and are now issuing this request for user inspection.”

This is not a recall. The company reports that since the structural sewing is easy to inspect (using the Harness Inspection Sheets), it is possible for users to identify any faults.

DMM reports that no harness failures, accidents, or injuries have occurred.
