    Hazard: Possible inaccuracy in a production resulting in lower waist belt strength of the harness – see a picture

    As of yet there are no reports of this defect coming from normal use. Nonetheless, Liberty Mountain and Singing Rock are acting pro-actively in this matter given the potential casualty hazard. Singing Rock has immediately changed the construction of the stitching for the CRUX and made other construction changes to the NARA and NEMO to avoid possible safety hazards.

    Since word of this recall reached Liberty Mountain, we have enacted our internal recall protocol and have contacted every customer who has purchased any of these three harnesses.  At this time we have been able to account for all but 95 harnesses affected by this recall.

    PLEASE RETURN THESE HARNESSES FOR REPLACEMENT WITH A NEW HARNESS.
