Dangerous Zipline Kit Recalled by Bring Your Adventure Sports
Bring Your Adventure Sports (BYA) has announced a recall for its Sports Skyline backyard zipline kits. A crimp in the zipline is prone to failing, allowing the cable to pull free or become slack while in use, posing a fall hazard to the user.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the company have received nine reports of cable failure, including six reports of injuries. Three of the reported injuries were from consumers sustaining bruising and other unknown injuries from a fall. In the remaining three, consumers reported head injuries.
The recalled zipline is sold in 60-, 75-, and 90-foot lengths. The kits were sold in camouflage packaging containing a main cable, trolley, short cable, turnbuckle and u-clamps. The following bar codes are found on the bottom left side of the packaging: 7456111220012(60-ft.), 7456111220029(75-ft.), and 7456111220036(90 ft.). The BYA logo and Skyline (60, 75 or) 90 Zipline Kit are printed on the front of the packaging.
About 5,700 kits are included in the recall.
Consumers could purchase these products at REI and other sporting goods stores nationwide and online from August 2013 to July 2015. The ziplines were sold for between $100 and $130.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled items and contact BYA Sports for a free replacement kit.
