The cable chocks can break, posing a fall hazard

Salewa USA is recalling about 3,700 Wild Country Superlight Rocks cable wire chocks sold in the U.S., and Canada.

When exposed to seaside conditions, corrosion can occur and weaken the cable chocks and they can break, posing a fall hazard to climbers.

No incidents or injuries have been reported in the U.S.

This recall involves Wild Country brand Superlight Rocks (model number 40-RSL) and Superlight Rocks Set 1-6 (model number 40-RSLSET) single cable wire chocks used for climbing.

Superlight Rocks were sold as a set of six and individually in six different sizes and colors including: size 1 purple, size 2 green, size 3 silver, size 4 gold, size 5 blue and size 6 red.

The brand name, product name, and batch code are located on the swage on the chock.

The cable wire chocks, manufactured in Taiwan, were sold at REI, MEC, and other specialty outdoor stores nationwide and online at www.wildcountry.com, www.backcountry.com, and www.campsaver.com from January 2017, through February 2023, for between $14 and $16 each and about $80 for a set of six.
