Camp announces recalls for crampons
AMP (Concezione Articoli Montagna Premana) has announced a recall for two sets of crampons:
RECALL FOR REPLACEMENT
Cassin Blade Runner Crampons
If you have purchased a pair of Cassin Blade Runner (ref. 37801, 37803) or Blade Runner Alpine Crampons (ref. 37802, 37804), CAMP asks you to stop using them immediately and follow the procedures below to process your warranty claim. Batch numbers affected by this recall are: 1 12 | 1 13 | 2 13 | 3 13 | 1 14.
Problem Description: There is a risk of fatigue-caused breaking of the supports of the removable front points (see picture); such breaking may take place after the front points have undertaken a high number of solicitations.
Remedy: The company has redesigned the front portion of the crampon to address the problem. Replacement parts complete with front points attached are expected to be available before ice season 2015 begins. All affected crampons should be returned immediately to CAMP for inspection and installation of the replacement parts.

If you have purchased a pair of CAMP Tour Nanotech Automatic (ref. 367) or Semi-Automatic (ref. 374) crampons (see pictures), CAMP asks that you stop using them immediately and follow the procedures below to process your warranty claim. Batch numbers affected by this recall are: 0 11 | 1 11 | 1 12 | 2 12 | 3 12 | 1 13 | 1 14.
Problem Description: CAMP has discovered inconsistencies in the crimp at the end of the attachment points on the rear heel bail where the bail connects to the crampon. With strong outward pressure, the heel bail can come free from its attachment to the crampon causing the boot to come free from the crampon.
Remedy: The company has manufactured replacement parts to correct the problem. Replacement parts are expected to be available in July, 2015. All affected crampons should be returned immediately to CAMP for inspection and installation of the replacement parts.
