NB Recall for replacement: GRIGRI 2
« p: 22.06.2011 12:36 »
"Concerns all GRIGRI 2’s (D14 2O, D14 2G, D14 2B ) with the first five digits of the serial number  between 10326 and 11136."

"Petzl has discovered that exerting excessive force on the fully extended handle of the GRIGRI 2 can cause internal damage, such that the GRIGRI 2 handle may become stuck in the open position.

When the handle is stuck in this position the assisted braking function is disabled. A damaged GRIGRI 2 in this configuration will function similarly to a manual belay device (e.g. tube style device).

When using a damaged GRIGRI 2 with the handle stuck in the position as shown in Figure 1, failure to control the braking side of the rope will increase the risk of an uncontrolled descent. A GRIGRI 2 with a damaged handle must be immediately retired from service.

It is important to note that failure to control the braking side of the rope is a misuse of the GRIGRI 2 under any circumstance (See GRIGRI 2 Technical Notice - pdf file, 2,5Mo).



As of June 20, 2011, seven damaged products have been returned to Petzl through our worldwide distribution network. Petzl has no knowledge of any accidents resulting from a damaged GRIGRI 2 handle."

Fy Fy !!!


GRIGRI er IKKE en DECENDER!

Det er et BELAYING DEVICE!

så hvis du stiller opp på grottetur med den
så må du regne med å bli uglesett!
(...hvor mye annet er det den fyren ikke har skjønt...)


Noen som følte seg truffet?  ... Kjøp en Petzl STOP
i all stillhet og håp at ingen merker overgangen.
Skulle noe merke det så bare nekt!
"..Jeg har altid brukt STOP!..du må ha drømt!..."
