C3 Manufacturing Auto Belay recall

C3 Manufacturing has announced a stop use and recall of the Perfect Descent Auto Belay model 220 Indoor, Outdoor, Speed Drive and Direct Drive units manufactured from February 2017 through April 2019.

While no accidents have been reported, C3 is voluntarily recalling affected units out of an abundance of caution and consistent with their focus on safety and quality. The investigation indicates that defects may be present in the material used to manufacture the retraction spring which can result in partial or complete fracture of the spring and loss of retraction force.
