The Beal Birdie Belay Device is used by rock climbers. Belay devices are used with climbing ropes to protect the climber while climbing, to arrest a fall or while being lowered on the rope. The Beal Birdie Belay Device was sold in three colors: Orange handle, Blue handle or Green handle. This recall involves all units laser-marked with batch year “/19” on the side of the unit. Only units marked with “/19” are being recalled.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Beal Birdie Belay Devices and contact Liberty Mountain for a free replacement.
The firm has received three reports of the user being unable to lower the climber because the hand lever became detached from the device. No injuries have been reported.
