Petzl Grigri 2 recall notice (for replacement)

Photo from Petzl website
Petzl has announced a recall for replacement of a specific batch of grigri 2's. From some unconfirmed sources, it sounds like pulling too hard on the handle can cause a pin in the handle to wedge against the body of the grigri. Petzl reported: "As of June 20, 2011, seven damaged products have been returned to Petzl through our worldwide distribution network. Petzl has no knowledge of any accidents resulting from a damaged GRIGRI 2 handle."

Rather than wonder about the exact mechanism for failure, simply check your grigri's serial number. If the first five digits fall between 10326 and 11136, Petzl will take care of you. It appears that the replacement can't be initiated through a local retailer.






Petzl posted the following response on their website:

[Because the safety of our users is our primary concern, as a measure of precaution Petzl has decided to take the following actions:

  • increase the mechanical strength of the handle on all GRIGRI 2’s since serial number 11137.
  • recall all GRIGRI 2’s with the first five digits of the serial number between 10326 and 11136, and replace with a new revised GRIGRI 2.
Petzl will pay for all shipping costs to complete this replacement.]


The recall notice seems very thorough. This appears to be a great response to the reports of failure. I've used the grigri2, and I've used other Petzl products for years - 3 first generation grigri's (that's a lot of use), several harnesses including client harnesses, helmets, etc., and I don't think that I will be dissuaded from using the grigri2. The occurrence of this failure lends credence to the practice of always keeping your brake hand on the rope, even with "braking-assist" devices like the grigri2 - see an earlier post demonstrating this with a grigri.
