GTHI is recalling more than 200 Trango Raptor ice tools used for mountain climbing. The head of the ice tool can detach from the shaft, posing a fall hazard to climbers.

The firm has received two reports of incidents. No injuries have been reported.

The ice tools have a blue and black shaft, measure approximately 19 inches tall and weigh about 1.4 pounds. They have an ice pick at the end of a curved shaft and rubber handle. The words raptor and TRANGO are written in white letters on the handle of the shaft.

The affected tools were sold at Authorized GTHI dealers, outdoor specialty stores nationwide, and online at trango.com.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ice tools and contact GTHI for a full refund or replacement. Owners of the recalled tools have been contacted directly.
