PLEASE SEE BELOW IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE FROM DMM
It has come to our attention that the locking mechanisms of some DMM locking carabiners are developing a dysfunction.
In a small percentage of carabiners, the interaction between the internal coil spring (which gives the gate it’s closing action) and the spring pusher (the component that holds the spring against the carabiner body) may cause the spring pusher to displace, potentially preventing the gate from closing or the mechanism from locking completely.
This has raised obvious safety concerns, and we are taking this step to ensure the safety of the users of DMM carabiners. Click here for more information.
As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.

Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.
How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
