Za ene že vem, da imajo novi GriGri2. Preverite serijske in ga zamenjajte, če imate tega sumljivega.
Recall for replacement: GRIGRI2
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.
Because the safety of our users is our primary concern, as a measure of precaution Petzl has decided to take the following actions:
- increase the mechanical strength of the handle on all GRIGRI 2’s since serial number 11137.
- recall all GRIGRI 2’s with the first five digits of the serial number between 10326 and 11136, and replace with a new revised GRIGRI 2.
Petzl will pay for all shipping costs to complete this replacement.

Nov že naročen! Hvala za obvestilo!
Kdor ga je kupil v Igluju, ga lahko tam zamenja. Menda nove dobijo konec naslednjega tedna. Preden greste tja, raje prej pokličite. Lahko jih v MB zamenjam tudi jaz.
