A screw link with a prominent superficial crack was found. The manufacturer of this product is PEGUET MAILLON RAPIDE SAS and EDELRID installs and sells it. PEGUET is currently investigating the case. In the interests of customer safety, PEGUET has decided to immediately call for a safety check. A screw link with a crack must be withdrawn from use immediately and reported to EDELRID or PEGUET.

First check whether you have a product of the affected batch.
2. INSPECTION OF THE SCREW LINK

Why does EDELRID publish PEGUET's call to review of the MAILLON RAPIDE 8mm??
EDELRID sells the MAILLON RAPIDE 8 MM by PEGUET as a stand-alone product and also uses the Maillon in other EDELRID products.
Was there an accident with a defective screw link?
No, the defective screw link was dicovered during the incoming goods inspection by EDELRID. There was no accident.
What is the role of PEGUET and EDELRID?
PEGUET is the manufacturer of the product. EDELRID acts as a dealer in this context and has only limited possibilities for action here. The responsibility for the PPE product lies with the manufacturer PEGUET. EDELRID also incorporates the MAILLON RAPIDE 8 MM as a semi-finished product in EDELRID-systems and -products and therefore calls for inspection of these products.
What does PEGUET say about the incident?
What is the technical background for this safety call?
The technical background is currently being checked by PEGUET. The clarification here is PEGUET's responsibility.
Are other products affected?
EDELRID installs the PEGUET screw link into some of its own products. The following products contain the MAILLON RAPIDE 8 MM and should be checked accordingly:
Attention: None of the screw links have an EDELRID-specific marking.
In addition, equipment of other brands should also be checked for the use of this screw link. PEGUET distributes this product through several other brands.
We also appeal for increased caution and prior visual inspection of the product MAILLON RAPIDE 8 MM, which is outside the area of responsibility of a single person or a company (e.g. established belay stations in multi-pitch routes).

According to PEGUET, batch A.19.04 is affected.
Where can I find the batch number on the screw link?
The batch number is engraved on the long side of the screw link.
What should I do if I discover a defective screw link?
The screw link must be immediately withdrawn from use.
Who do I contact with further questions?
