Topic - Edelrid Mega Jul. Not impressed. can I return it?

NIGBEE on 17 Jun 2013
Tried one at a demo at a wall and was very impressed, it auto locked on leader falls and whilst abbing. (big fat wall ropes)

Got round to buying one today along with a Black Diamond Grid Lock karabiner, have brought them home and had a practice with them.

With my ropes they just dont auto lock neither my Revalation 9.2mm single or my 8.2mm half ropes, this has been tested by a hanging set up and I just slide down the rope (very slowly admitedly) it does lock on the 9.2mm if I change the biner to my old HMS but still not on the half ropes

I know all the instructions state that you must hold the dead rope at all times but I am surprised by the amount of difference in performance by switching karabiners (nothing is stated about karabiner requirements in the instructions)

Anyway I am not impressed with it and feel I have wasted my money as it does not work as I was expecting with my existing ropes and any extra holding power seems not worth the more down sides to using it.

Short question after all that is can I return it or is there some PPE ruling or the shop can just say no as it does work buy the strictest letter of the instructions?
