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 Petzl ZIGZAG mechanical Prusik. Petzl has since been informed of another identical failure.
Petzl has decided to immediately recall all ZIGZAGs. As a measure of precaution, Petzl asks that you:
immediately stop using the ZIGZAG
return the ZIGZAG, with proof of purchase, to the Petzl distributor in your country (at Petzl's costs).
