New England Ropes recalls two Maxim ropes

by Tom Markiewicz on July 30, 2008

I just received an email from an old climbing partner directing me to an announcement on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission site stating that New England Ropes is recalling two types of their ropes.

The company says the reason for the recall is the ropes “may not pass the required 5 falls, and may pose a serious risk over time.” Specifically affected by this recall are the Maxim Apogee and Maxim Pinnacle:

Two types of climbing ropes have been included in this recall, the Maxim Apogee 9.1mm and Maxim Pinnacle 9.5mm. The Maxim Apogee 9.1mm is a 48 carrier climbing rope. The colors are yellow and black, and red and yellow. The model numbers are 3411-91 and 3415-91, with date codes 060801 thru 080601. The UPC codes are: 75396312299, 75396312298, 75396312301, and 75396312300. The Maxim Pinnacle 9.5mm is a blue 48 carrier climbing rope. The Model number is 3403-95, with date codes 070201 thru 080601. The UPC codes are 75396312292 and 75396312293. The date codes and the UPC codes are on the original packaging.

These specific ropes were sold between August 2006 and June 2008. So if you recently bought a Maxim ropes, you better check your rope and possibly contact New England Ropes.

    Jon, thanks for posting that link. Do you really think it was a problem with New England Ropes though? From your report it sounds like that could have occurred to any rope. Thoughts?

    I have always felt that my Maxim ropes sheaths were very durable compared to some others. Maybe if you had been using a different rope it could of severed completely. Just saying maybe you should look at it from a different angle.
