Xtreme Outdoor Products is recalling about 1,165 climbing sticks because they pose a fall hazard and risk of serious injury.

The climbing sticks can break due to a bolt failure on the center step and the company has received two reports of injuries, including scrapes and bruises, a fractured foot and ribs.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled climbing sticks and return them to Xtreme Outdoor Products for a full refund or refund in the form of a store credit.

Customers should contact the company 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday at 877-544-6611, email at service@xopoutdoors.com or online at www.XOPoutdoors.com and click on “About” for more information.

This recall involves XOP climbing sticks used to climb trees. The climbing sticks have XOP and model number XOP-LMO4-SR printed on the box. They were sold in sand ripple green color in a 4-pack. The climbing sticks measure about 36” inches tall and have three climbing steps.
