The French hardware  manufactur Peguet is one of the largest manufacturers of screw links, so-called Maillon Rapide, which are primarily used in climbing on deflectors and at stands.

During a routine inspection, the company found a Maillon Rapide in the production batch with a cracked surface. According to Peguet, it is a production error.

Affected are the products of the Maillon Rapide 8mm standard galvanized steel EN362 / EN12275 ref.MRNZ08.0 CE EN 02.0 of batch A.19.04. These Maillon are galvanized and not made of stainless steel and should not be combined with stainless steel hooks anyway!

Please report any damage directly to Peguet: or the local climbing associations.
