Recommended Posts

Petzl issued the following statement regarding their product. It is imperative for all Zig-Zag users to read this statement immediately.


“Petzl has recently become aware of an incident report involving the ZIGZAG mechanical Prusik.

According to a post on the treeclimbers.eu message board, there is a claim that a connection point on the ZIGZAG broke, resulting in a ground fall.

Petzl has not yet confirmed the failure or seen the ZIGZAG in question, nor are we aware of the specific circumstances under which any such incident occurred. Therefore, we cannot comment on the report at this time.

That said, we would like to assure our customers that Petzl takes this and all safety issues extremely seriously. We are currently working diligently to collect information and will issue a statement as soon as we have had a chance to review the circumstances surrounding this reported incident.”


We apologize for any inconvenience this notice may cause you, but we want you to work safely.
