Rossignol/Look announced this morning a safety recall for their popular Look Pivot bindings. According to the recall posted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the heel piece on certain Pivot bindings can loosen, allowing the boot to pop out of the binding.
No injuries or incidents have been reported, but consumers are being advised to immediately stop using the recalled bindings and contact Look to arrange for a free inspection and replacement.
The recall is for Pivot bindings sold between September 2017 and November 2017 including those sold from specialty ski shops like Christy Sports, REI, Retail Concepts, and Vail Resorts as well as online retailers like Backcountry.com and Evo.com. About 6,900 bindings were sold in the U.S., along with 590 in Canada.
Only the date codes of H7, I7, or J7, without the letter "V" stamped in the black plastic piece behind the turntable heel unit, are being recalled. Date codes can be found on the bottom of the heel piece and can be viewed by turning the heel unit 90 degrees.
Look customer service can be contacted 9-5 Mountain Time Monday through Friday at 1-888-243-6722, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or online at www.look-bindings.com.
