! GriGri 2

Unfortunately the new GriGri 2 has a problem... (In Apple terms: As it turns out the GriGri2 has an issue...)
Under serious force the handle might block, causing failure in the automatic breaking system.
So, I have to sent mine back and get a replacement.
Maybe you have to sent yours back too? Check out the details on the Petzl website here.
Petzl says: "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."
For Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg please contact Alpitec by e-mailing to recall.grigri2@alpitec.be
For Iceland, please use to contact form on the Petzl webpage.
