16.05.2011: Crolles, France: Petzl has voluntarily decided to issue a product safety alert: request for inspection for the SCORPIO lanyards L60 and L60 CK manufactured before March 4, 2005 with individual product identification numbers between 02150 and 05062 for immediate inspection by Petzl and for return of those that pass inspection as rapidly as possible.

 

The lanyard was involved in a via ferrata accident which occurred on May, 2011 in Grenoble, France.

Petzl analysis shows an absence of one of the safety stitching (bar tacks) of the energy absorbing system. This safety stitching (bar tacks) can only be seen if the energy absorber is removed from its protective pouch.

 

Not being requested for inspection are the via ferrata lanyards: Scorpio L60 2, L60 H, L60 WL and Zyper.
