Wild Country is recalling its Superlight Rock chocks in sizes 1 through 6. Details about the recall can be found here.
Wild Country made a name for itself in the climbing scene as a manufacturer of quality climbing products, particularly with the success of its Friends. In addition to the Friends, there are also clamping wedges in the range of many climbers, be it for trad climbing or alpine climbing.
Now the British manufacturer is recalling its Superlight Rock in sizes 1 to 6. Below is the official statement or product recall from Wildcountry.
Please do not use the «Wild Country Superlight Rock» chocks in sizes 1 to 6 (Code 40-RSL) and «Superlight Rock Set Nos. 1-6" produced before January 2023.
danger | reason for the recall
Wild Country has recently learned that prolonged exposure of the Superlight Rock single cable slips to marine coastal conditions with high salt concentrations and/or humid climates with saline atmospheres can result in corrosion of the interior of the plastic casing. This can significantly reduce the breaking strength of the chocks, and a fall while climbing can be dangerous.
Dealers and end customers should stop using the affected products immediately and contact Wild Country for a replacement.
This recall does not affect any Superlight Rocks other than those mentioned above. Wild Country Rock, Classic Rock, Rock Centrics and Superlight Offset Rock are not affected by this voluntary recall.
Please contact us by phone (from 08.30 to 21.30 GTM+1 European Time, Mon-Fri) or via email.
