Wild Country Superlight Rocks Recall
VOLUNTARY RECALL NOTICE ISSUED 02/13/2023
Hazard: Wild Country has recently learned that when single cable Superlight Rocks are exposed to maritime seaside conditions with high concentrations of salt, and/or humid climate with salty atmosphere for an extended period of time, corrosion inside of the ferrule (the swage covered in plastic that is labelled with the name of the product) can occur. This can significantly reduce the breaking strength of the chocks and may therefore become dangerous for a climber in the event of a fall from height.
Remedy: Dealers and consumers should immediately stop using all Superlight Rocks Nos. 1- 6 and contact Wild Country for instructions to obtain a replacement.
This recall does not apply to any other Wild Country Rocks, other than the Superlight Rocks Nos. 1-6 produced prior to January 2023. Wild Country Rocks, Classic Rocks, Rock Centrics, and Superlight Offset Rocks are not subject to this voluntary recall.
SUBJECT TO RECALL
SUPERLIGHT ROCK with a single cable wire.
SUPERLIGHT ROCK: 40-RSL, 40- RSLSET
