UPDATE: Call for review of the Edelrid Mega Jul

In November 2023, Edelrid called for a review of batch 04/20 of the Mega Jul security device. The German mountain sports equipment manufacturer is now expanding its appeal to all batches.

Edelrid is now calling on every owner of a Mega Jul, regardless of the batch, to visually check the device for any abnormalities.

Due to the call for inspection in this matter published on November 14.11.2023, 04, another device was identified with a defect in the replacement eyelet, which does not come from batch 20/XNUMX.

It cannot therefore be ruled out that other devices from other batches with defects are in circulation.

The defects are manufacturing-related deviations that are easily recognizable during a visual inspection, e.g. B. a crack. The changes in the metal structure are usually only superficial, but can also result in a reduction in strength.

Review

Please proceed as follows when checking: Check the surface of the metal body, especially the secondary eyelet, for deviations such as wrinkles, steps, cracks, etc.
