CCH Alien Recall

Posted on behalf of Steve at Rockhardware:
"There is an Alien cam re-call by CCH. It appears there may not be any of the effected cams in Australia.We have to be sure. I am at work today until 12 midday. I am then on holidays until the 23rd of January."

"On January 12th in the USA, Colorado Custom Hardwear (CCH) issued an official recall notice for some of their Alien camming units that were manufactured after November 2004. The affected units are clearly identified by a punch mark that appears just below the base of the round ball where the axle goes through the cable eye."

See PDF for full text and pictures.

"Spelean Pty Ltd is issuing a recall in Australia for any camming units that are identified as coming from the affected batch. Only units with the punch mark at the base of the round ball where the axle goes through the cable eye need to be returned to us. CCH has undertaken to replace any camming units affected by the recall."

The link didn't work for me when I was using Firefox. It did work when I used IE. I didn't try any other browsers.

Some of the numerous threads on rc.com have a very good picture of the centre punch mark.

Being lazy, and not reading the links, is this still their problem of not having the right cam angle? And putting the pivot point in the wrong place?

No shaggy, new and completely different problem. The wire stem pulls out of the brazed joint near the axle the result of which causes the trigger wires to be pulled under load which dislodges the cam from its placement. It is extremely important that this recall is distributed to the non internet climbers that we come across. The identification for the defect as Mike states is the small centre punch mark at the base of the stem near the bulb of the axle.
