Some AUSTRIALPIN UNIVERSAL snap karabiners were falsely marked with a false certification. There are no security restrictions. Nevertheless, Austrialpin has decided to recall the products listed below.

Snap karabiners with the article number KZ01A and KZ01B have been wrongly marked with the EN362-B certification. However, only carabiners with a lock safety device can be EN362-B certified (eg screw cap, Autolock, etc.). Therefore, Austrialpin has decided to recall the above UNIVERSAL snap carabiners.

Since it is only an incorrect mark, there are no security restrictions. The carabiners hold according to Austrialpin the specified values.

Wrongly labeled snap carabiner
Correctly labeled screw-in carabiner

So you have to proceed according to Austrialpin
