ASAP LOCK

On March 30, 2016, during routine equipment inspections, one customer detected cracks on the stainless steel arms on three ASAP LOCK units. In light of this information, a complete inspection of Petzl ASAP LOCK inventory was conducted and no cracked ASAP LOCK arms were found. Mechanical tests conducted by Petzl on the ASAP LOCK with intentionally cut arms showed that a cracked arm presents no additional risk to the user.

Two different customers have informed us recently of the failure of the rivet head on two Petzl CROLL rope clamps. Neither failure led to an accident. These two CROLL rope clamps were used on offshore platforms in the North Sea. There was no sign of specific wear or damage on either CROLL before these failures occurred.
