Topic - Petzl IDs - Over Sensitive Panic Lockout

Sandstone Stickman - on 12 Jun 2013
Hi,

I've recently purchased a secondhand Petzl ID (The yellow - smaller version with the older style handle). It works ok, but only just. When releasing load its incredibly sensitive. If you pull the handle a fraction further than required to ease the rope, the anti panic auto brake locks on.

Does anyone have any experience of this? It was sold as "Good working order" but i'm not so sure.

Thanks

P.s. I'm using this as a brake for a slackline, not for any work at height so its safe enough in this capacity, but could be difficult to release the tension in the future (If the panic lock comes on any sooner!)
