on Monday, 06 January 2014 13:00.

Petzl ZIGZAG RecallSummary of the facts

On Friday, April 12, Petzl was informed of an accidental fall in a training center in Germany. This fall was related to a failure of the rope end attachment hole of the original Petzl ZIGZAG mechanical Prusik with serial number below 13108******. Petzl have since been informed of another identical failure.

These failures were the result of a particular configuration of a cantilevered and off axis loaded upper carabiner.

Petzl believes that this incorrect positioning of the connector could inadvertently occur during normal use with the potential for serious injury or death.
