Call for inspection of crampon soft bindings

Isny, 31.08.2020
EDELRID asks all owners of crampon soft bindings to check them for a correct combination of components.

BACKGROUND:

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.

The following crampons are delivered ex works with the crampon soft binding:

If the crampon soft binding is purchased as a single item, it is also compatible with the following crampons:

INSPECTION

Do the inspection as following:

  • Make sure that the binding wire is folded on the crampon, as shown in the picture.
  • Inspect the orientation of the depressed wire-ends in relation to the hole orientation.
  • When the depressed wire ends are orientated 90° to the hole the component combination is correct and the crampons may be used.

In case the depressed wire ends are orientated parallel to the hole the component combination is wrong. Please contact [email protected]
