We kindly request you to ask every user, to check the TALON for potential damages before using it for climbing and to refrain from using it in case of damage.
Should a TALON be affected by one of the issues mentioned below, EDELRID will provide a free revision of your product.
In July 2017, EDELRID launched a completely new concept for tree climbing gaffs together with an internationally renowned tree care dealer. This new generation of tree climbing gaffs replaced the leather-steel tree and pole climber which were common to use among arborists and which in many cases were bulky and above all heavy at the same time. Thanks to its plastic cuff, the EDELRID TALON is one of the lightest tree climbing gaffs on the market. Its new ergonomic design follows the shape of the leg and ensures maximum stability and comfort when climbing.
VELCROS: As a few TALON models had defects in the quality of the velcro on the fixing of the padding and the binding, we offer all our customers to exchange the velcro straps just as a precaution. A defective velcro does not indicate a serious risk for the user.
DAMAGED PLASTIC SHELL: In four cases worldwide, damages on the plastic cuff of the TALON tree climbing gaffs occurred. As the reason for the damages has not been definitely identified yet, we request all TALON owners to check their tree climbing gaffs for possible damages and offer you a free exchange against a new, reinforced plastic cuff. Play it safe: Get the plastic cuff of your TALON tree climbing gaffs replaced anyway – it's free.
