Release # 95-132

WASHINGTON, D.C. - CPSC, Game Tracker of Flushing, Mich., is recalling approximately 92,500 Deluxe Safety Belts & Climbing Harnesses and Lifeline Safety Harnesses. The climbing belts and safety harnesses were sold as a restraint mechanism to prevent hunters from falling when hunting from trees or tree stands.

The welded D-ring that connects the belt and rope can cause the belt to fray and break, which can result in a fall. Game Tracker is aware of five incidents in which the safety belt and harness failed resulting in falls and serious injuries.

The Deluxe Safety Belt & Climbing Harness, Models GTDSB and 3020, and Lifeline Safety Harness, Model 3040, were sold from 1990 to 1995. The belt and harness sets consist of a black, 2-inch-wide nylon webbing; 5/16 inch nylon cord; a metal D-ring; and a metal adjustment clasp. Model 3040 also has a leg harness made of similar black nylon webbing. The products sold nationwide for $19 to $21 in 1,700 sporting goods and archery stores.

Game Tracker is recalling all products sold to date to prevent future injuries. Consumers should stop using the products and return them, along with the name of the consumer, telephone number, and mailing address to: The Game Tracker, Attn: Product Safety Coordinator, 3476 Eastman Drive, Flushing, MI 48433. Game Tracker will send consumers a replacement safety belt as well as a reimbursement check for $3 to cover mailing expenses. For more information, call Game Tracker at (800) 241-4833.
