Speed Buckle Harnesses used during mountain and rock climbing recalled for fall hazard

The U.S. CPSC has announced a voluntary recall of Speed Buckle Harnesses and is advising consumers to stop using them immediately. The harness, if threaded improperly, will cause the webbing to slip easily when loaded, posing a risk to climbers. The Speed Buckle Harnesses were sold under the following model names: Gym Speed, Focus Speed, Momentum Speed, Vario Speed and Wiz Kid. The names can be found on a tag sewn inside the waist belt of the harnesses. Only Black Diamond Equipment Speed Buckle Harnesses with incorrectly threaded buckles are included in this recall. There have been no injuries reported.
