Recall: Wild Country Recalls the Ascender Ropeman 3

Ropeman 3 ascenders of the company Wild Country may slip when initially loaded

11/02/2012, Tideswell, Wales, Great Britain: The manufacturer of climbing and mountaineering equipment Wild Country recalls the mini ascender and rope clamp Ropeman 3 because of safety issues.

 

Tough the Ropeman 3 would pass the standard EN567 for rope clamps in mountaineering equipment; the device may slip when initially loaded. This danger of slipping should be even higher if the rope is under significant tension and the Ropeman 3 is not set specifically in position. If the Ropeman 3 is positioned properly this danger would not occur, nevertheless Wild Country has taken the decision for an immediate recall of the Ropeman 3.


The Ropeman 3 is clearly marked with its name, is red or blue and can be identified by its ridged aluminium cam.
