How to Clean Auto Belays

With the increase in COVID-19 across the globe, it's important to know it affects everybody, every business, and every product in a different way. Our products are used in high touch environments and we've received a handful of questions about how to clean/disinfect our products, specifically devices like TRUBLUE and QuickFlight/QUICKjump.

It is important to note that many cleaners and disinfectants are not suitable to be used with Head Rush products. If a device needs more than a simple dusting, customers should use a damp cloth with warm water and a mild detergent such as a dish soap to clean the device, carabiner, or webbing. Allow the unit to air dry after cleaning.

Certain disinfectants such as bleach or Lysol will chemically attack webbing and stitching and must not be used! Head Rush has researched compatible disinfection agents and recommends a 70% Isopropyl Alcohol spray or wipe. DO NOT DILUTE. A 70% Isopropyl Alcohol can be sprayed or wiped on Head Rush carabiners and handgrips. We recommend spraying or wiping down the carabiner. For the hand grip, we recommend spraying the 70% Isopropyl Alcohol on a rag and wiping it in a downward motion towards the carabiner. This will help to keep the handgrip from becoming soaked. Do not soak the webbing. Do not spray Alcohol near heat sources or open flames as alcohol is flammable. Allow the device to air dry after disinfecting. Use only Isopropyl Alcohol as other types of alcohol will damage the webbing.

If you have any additional questions, please refer to the CDC. Small actions can make a big difference when everyone helps out — thanks for doing your part.
