/ GriGri2 wigly side plate
Mine wiggles a bit as well. Doesn't effect its operation though.
From memory, the test is, can you shut the device such that the pin (in the cam) fails to engage in the outer plate, or some wording pointing to the same idea
There should be better inspection info in the product instructions that came with it, if you can't find them, have a look on the petzl web site.
Hope that helps.
My GriGri2's side plate rattles and wiggles a bit too, but it never concerned me to be honest. However, don't take any chance. If you're in doubt contact Petzl directly. See here: http://www.petzl.com/en/outdoor/support-frequently-asked-questions-faq I did contact them in the past about other issues, and although not super fast, they do reply and give sensible advice.
