OBELISK Technical Update

on Tuesday, 01 May 2018 07:28.

Our initial batch of OBELISK has generated many questions on uses outside of the product instructions. During evaluation of some of these extreme uses we noticed that it was possible to move the securing nut on the carriage anchor eyebolt.


Although we cannot envisage this phenomenon happening in any normal, approved use, we like to put solutions and improvements into products where opportunities arise. For this reason, we have contacted all owners of our first batch of OBELISK and provided them with replacement, upgraded OBELISK Carriages.

We have spoken to everyone concerned and exchanged the relevant items, however, our stringent quality systems require us to post a formal notice explaining what we have done.
