Wild Country Recalls Helium Carabiners

Wild Country is issuing a voluntary recall on certain batches of Helium carabiners delivered after July 15, 2012 and quickdraws that include these carabiners. The wire gate on these carabiners may not engage the nose hook, reducing the carabiner's gate-closed strength.

Wild Country is issuing a voluntary recall on certain batches of Helium carabiners delivered after July 15, 2012 and quickdraws that include these carabiners. The wire gate on these carabiners may not engage the nose hook, reducing the carabiner’s gate-closed strength.

Wild Country asks that if you purchased any Helium carabiners after July 15 that you stop using them immediately. You can find the info on how to identify and return defective carabiners here.
