RECALL FOR REPLACEMENT: SALEWA HOT G2 BENT Carabine/ item number 1557

The carabine model Hot G2 Bent is affected by the recall.
The carabines concerned have the following properties:
Item number: 1557 Hot G2 Bent Colour: 0999/ rot
Hot G2 Bent carabines with the following production serial numbers are affected:
02 11 03 11
These numbers are stamped near the info of breaking load (see illustration) or on the opposite side of the carabine next to the certification number.
This precautionary recall concerns only the carabine itself. There were no original SALEWA express sets produced with the carabines concerned. Thus
original SALEWA express sets are NOT affected by the recall.
SALEWA regularly conducts tests on its safety products to ensure the highest standards of quality and safety. As part of these quality control procedures
carabines are tested for their loading capacity. During testing, the Hot G2 Bent carabine deviated in its lateral axis breaking load from the norm values.
Important note: The test was conducted under extreme conditions, which are highly unlikely to occur in practice. As a precautionary measure, SALEWA
has decided to recall all Hot G2 Bent carabines from the market to prevent any risks for the user.
Owners of these carabines are asked to contact a SALEWA dealer or SALEWA Sportgeräte GmbH.
The carabines specified above will be immediately replaced with new carabines.
Note: Only Hot G2 Bent carabines with the above mentioned product serial numbers will be exchanged. No other carabines are affected by the recall.
Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any other queries about this recall.
