Quick‐Out carabiner safety notice ‐ 7. December 2016
On 15 November 2016, the faulty assembly of a Quick‐Out carabiner lead to its accidental opening. The pilot had dismounted both of the Quick‐Out's release buttons and later re‐installed them in swapped positions.
I've received this this afternoon - if you can help them, please do:

To those planning to attend the SHGC bash this weekend, it is being postponed for one week due to the rain and gusty winds forecast for Saturday evening. The Summer Bash will now be taking place on Saturday 10th September, from 5pm onwards. There will still be a hog roast, beer, plenty of space for camping and the all important roaring fire.
Andreus will cook us fabulous food. Mark will stoke the fire, tunes will be played, beer and wine drunk on a balmy Autumn evening.
A faulty gin carabiner has been brought to my attention.
The internal spring has become displaced or suchlike such that it appears to close but has not actually engaged with the locking pin. See picture.
