Stubai Ring Piton and Soft Piton Recall Announcement

If you purchased one or more Stubai Ring Pitons or Stubai Soft Pitons between 2004 and 2018, we have recently been notified of a recall on the two products by Stubai.

Stubai has noted that the welds on the rings on these pitons can crack in rare circumstances posing a fall hazard. Stubai asks that you stop using your pitons and return them to MEC for a refund. Learn more about Stubai’s recall notice.

We ask that you stop using affected pitons immediately. Due to the COVID-19 situation, MEC cannot accept in-person returns through our stores at this time. We suggest that you wait until our stores re-open to make a return. You can also contact us to arrange a return by mail.

If you have further questions, please get in touch with our Service Centre at info@mec.ca or 1.888.847.0770 (ask for Returns).
