Wild Country issue recall on 2016 Syncro harnesses

Wild Country Syncro Harness Recall

VOLUNTARY RECALL NOTICE – WILD COUNTRY SYNCRO HARNESS

ArticleImageHandlerFor the safety of all of our customers we are issuing an immediate recall notice for all Wild Country Syncro Harnesses manufactured and sold during 2016. If you own a Wild Country Syncro Harness that was purchased during 2016 please read this notice carefully and follow the instructions “How to Identify the Product”, so that you can ascertain whether your product is affected by this recall.

The reason for the recall

We have found a manufacturing fault on a very small quantity of Syncro Harnesses that will cause one of the waist belt buckles to slip under load. No accidents have been reported; however, in the interest of customer safety, Wild Country has decided to voluntarily issue a recall. Even on a harness with this problem it may not be immediately obvious and no slippage will occur. It therefore requires a skilled inspector to identify the problem here at Wild Country. Therefore you must return the harness to us without exception.

Our first priority is always the safety of the climbing community and our customers; therefore we have taken the decision to recall all Syncro Harnesses sold in 2016 with immediate effect. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, and thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us to recover all of the affected Syncro harnesses for inspection and replacement.
