Petzl Recalls the New Belay Device GriGri 2

Broken stuck disabled the function

20.06.2011: Crolles, France: Petzl recalls once more another climbing safety equipment. Since the last recall, Petzl recalls the new safety belay device GriGri 2.

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.
