    Exclamation Ellaroo ring-slings --> problem with the rings?

    Hey ho



    Went to my local shop where I've been eyeing off an Ellaroo ring-sling for a while ... anyhows, she said it was no longer in the window as apparently there's a fault in some of the rings, and the sling has to go back to be tested.

    Ellaroo have batch numbers apparently, so if you have one, it may be worth checking with Ellaroo.
