Carabiners Used in Hunter Safety Harnesses Recalled

Miley Legal Group

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall on the 2010 Year HSS Ultra-Lite carabiners, a mechanism used in hunter safety harnesses. This product has been recalled because a hunter could fall if the carabiner’s pins detach. This is especially hazardous if a hunter is using the carabiner when harnessed to a tree stand.

Approximately 16,000 carabiners manufactured by Hunter Safety System of Danville, AL are being pulled from the market because of 2 reports of pin detachment. So far, there have been no reports of falls or injuries.

These carabiners were supplied with the HSS-300 Ultra-Lite full body climbing safety harness. They are black and come with a pin that sticks out of the gate. On the side opposite the gate is a stamp that reads “CB20101.”

When a defective product leads to injuries in a hunting accident, liability may be found with the manufacturer or any other party that is involved in the making or selling of the product. Contact a Clarksburg hunting accident lawyer to determine if you have a valid product liability claim.
