What's the Problem?
This recall affects Perfect Descent Auto Belay model 220 Indoor, Outdoor, Speed Drive and Direct Drive auto belay climbing devices, according to a CPSC Recall Notice.
The recalled belays can loosen and cause slack on the rope, allowing the climber to fall, CPSC said. Climbing while tethered to a malfunctioning belay can cause serious bodily injury, including death.
Perfect Descent Belay Devices are used with climbing ropes to protect the climber while climbing, to stop a fall while being lowered on the rope.
The recalled belays were sold online and at Aerial Adventure Technologies stores nationwide from February 2017 through April 2019 for $1,800 and $2,100, CPSC said. Affected devices are yellow and black, and have “Perfect Descent” printed on top of the belay.
