Product Recalls

From time to time, the brands we represent need to recall or issue warnings about their products. This is not unusual due to the complex nature of many of the items we sell. As the importer of our brands in Australia and New Zealand, we are responsible for all recall notices and warnings. We publish them on our website, we notify retailers and we post them on this Tab on our Facebook Page.

Here are any recalls or warnings that have been issued, the date and how to rectify any issues.

Petzl ZIGZAG Recall - 19 April 2013

Affected Products:     ZIGZAG Petzl mechanical Prusik for arborists 

On Friday, April 12, Petzl was informed of an accidental fall in a training centre in Germany. This fall was related to a failure of the rope end attachment hole of the Petzl ZIGZAG mechanical Prusik. We 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. Continued use of the ZIGZAG (Models before 2014) poses a risk of serious injury or death.
