Safety Rope Recalled Due to Fall Risk to Climbers
After receiving a report that a climber was injured using its Field & Stream safety rope during freezing weather, DICK’S Sporting Goods is recalling the product. Safety ropes are one of the essential safety tools that climbers use to reduce the risk of falling while climbing. According to the recall, the Field & Stream safety rope can fail in freezing conditions, posing fall and injury hazards.

According to the recall, the Field & Stream safety ropes subject to the recall are black with orange lines, and they were sold either individually or in a three-pack. The safety ropes also have a carabiner (a D shaped connecting device) that is used to connect the rope to the climber’s harness. According to the recall, the safety rope’s carabiner has a black and red label with the one of the following printed at the corner: HEH01299, HEH01882Z, or HEH01530. Additionally, the safety rope was sold at DICK’S Sporting Goods and Field & Stream stores nationwide and online from June 2017 through March 2020, and at Sportsman’s Warehouse stores nationwide from October 2019 through April 2020.
The recall states that customers who purchased the Field & Stream safety ropes should stop using them and return them to the store where they were purchased for a refund. Customers who do not have their receipt of purchase, however, will not be given a refund, but instead will be given a store credit of the purchase price.
