Oh no! Not another zigzag :(

Recommended Posts

Jist want to remind everyone to check their kit. I did my morning gear once over and by lunch a hairline was poping up on my zigzag :-( quick change back to a hitch and all is good. Climb safe chaps.

Forgive me for being blind and/or stupid, but where is the hairline? :confused1: If it's that wee scratch-looking thing on the "arrow", then you have very sharp eyes, young sir!

 

Little concerned now though, was thinking of getting a zillon lanyard. Should i be concerned, or am I being silly?

I've had it about 3 months, it sees action pretty much every day. It doesn't/ didn't put me off getting it. I'm hoping petzl come through with a solution as this is a wonderful device that I have tailored my climbing style to.

No it's not by the arrow it's by the rivet at the top hole:001_rolleyes:

Yup that is the chappy. Same place as petzl recommend inspecting!

I've only just got a zillon and frankly I love it same as the zigzag. As far as concern as long as its inspected and replaced if damaged then in my eyes its ok.

The "scratch" on the arrow is leylandi I believe the rivet area is the crack I was referring to.

 

Hard to tell in the pic but up close its obvious due to the devices size.
