 * 09 April, 2018: Please see updated 'KH260 Inspection Notice UPDATE 09/04/18' pdf*

We have received notice of a very small number of instances of KH260 karabiners where the retaining pin on the nut for the swivel assembly has become dislodged resulting in the nut backing off the stem and the swivel assembly separating from the karabiner. There are no reported injuries associated with this issue, but out of an abundance of caution we wanted to notify potential users of this issue.

Upon initial review, it is limited to a batch of KH260 Twister Karabiner. However, we feel that it is prudent for us to broaden the inspection to include all karabiners that utilize the same assembly method (KH260, KH260i, SH826, SH826i). It has been determined that with careful inspection, karabiners with the issue can be identified in the field.

Deadweight Portable Anchors- NEW STANDARD Certification

February 6th 2018

We are pleased to announce an important update to the ISC Deadweight Anchors!
After some design modifications and extensive testing, our dead weight portable anchors are now being re-launched, with the following updated standards:

CE Marked to EN795:2012 (Type E):  The latest and most stringent EN Standard for Anchors.

PD CEN/TS 16415:  Advisory standard - Recommendations for use of anchor points by more than one person simultaneously (fully rated for two person rescue loads).

IRATA International Code of Practice (ICOP) Compliant: Meets the 15kN static load testing, making them the only ICOP compliant Deadweight Anchors available on the market.

The new DW200.2 model also features a new, longer arm and now offers horizontal parapet clearance of up to 350mm (14"). 

 All testing of ISC Deadweight Anchors has been carried out by an 
independent third party Notified Body in the UK.
Beware of Deadweight products which DO NOT have third party test certification!
