Effective from October 14, 2009

MSA the manufacturer of Redpoint Descenders has issued a STOP USE NOTICE issued for all Redpoint Descenders (Part Numbers 10024873,10027646, AND 10027798) - REGARDLESS OF THE DATE THE UNIT WAS MANUFACTURED OR LAST FACTORY SERVICED.

The Redpoint Descender Autobelay (auto belay) Unit

The Redpoint Descender is a controlled descent device (auto belay) designed specifically for the challenge course (ropes course), climbing wall and climbing gym industry. The Redpoint Descender is typically installed overhead in indoor climbing gyms, on home climbing walls, on portable climbing walls, or on indoor and outdoor challenge courses and climbing towers. The Redpoint Descender provides a hands free belay for the climber, thereby eliminating the need for an additional climber or attendant to serve as belayer. The Redpoint Descender may be installed on a climbing wall where a top-rope would typically be used. Unlike a top-rope, however, the climber cannot hang suspended by the Redpoint Descender once he or she has let go of the wall. The climber will always be lowered to the ground at a continuous, controlled rate. The Redpoint Descender is NOT designed for lead climbing. The line automatically retracts into the unit, permitting repeated descents. The Redpoint Descender comes equipped with a replaceable line. The line may be replaced in the field by the end user.

The Redpoint Descender is Great for:

* Home Climbing Walls
* Climbing Gyms
* Ropes Courses and Challenge Courses
* Climbing Towers
