 Questions & Tips

Q: Is it okay to use carabiners that have been dropped?

Unfortunately, the only way to know if dropped carabiners are fit for use is to test them to their breaking point. This doesn't do you much good, now does it? It's best to inspect dropped gear for dings and significant trauma. If only light scratching is visible and gate action is still good, there is a good chance it is fit for usage. Remember, only you know what your gear has been through and if there is any doubt, it's best to retire the gear rather than take a risk.

Q: I heard there was a recall on my gear. Where do I go to find out details?
BD has all recall information listed here.
Q: Can I replace the LED bulbs in my BD headlamp?

No. LED bulbs have no filament and are made of a super-strong resin, so the likelihood of them breaking or burning out is slim. However, if they do fail we encourage you to send your bulb in to Black Diamond's Warranty Department:
