Crampons were found in which the textile components of the binding were assembled with the wrong wire components. In this case bindings can receive a lateral load and in some cases the wire slips out of the binding and the binding fails.
As it cannot be ruled out that the mistake did not happen on other crampons as well, EDELRID decided to ask all owners of soft bindings and crampons with soft bindings to inspect them for the correct combination of components.
Crampons with a wrong combination of components may not be used. No accident is known regarding this matter. In case crampons with a wrong component combination are getting used without an additional fall protection system a potentially fatal accident is possible.
