** recall is now closed **
Omega Pacific is voluntarily recalling a small percentage of Five-O Screwgate locking karabiners built between November and December of 2004.
Karabiners affected by this recall can be potentially open under moderate loads even when properly locked and must be returned for replacement.
Only karabiners marked with the lot stamp “VT” are affected. The lot number can be found on the backside of the spine and is clearly identified. Do not return any lots other than “VT” as no other lots are subject to this issue. No other models are affected. Only Five-O locking karabiners with the lot stamp “VT” (as pictured below) are considered under this action.
Please do not return carabiners to retailers. Instead, please ring Spelean on 1800 634 853 during 9am to 5pm weekdays. We will require your name and shipping address where we can deliver a replacement Five-O locking karabiner.
