Re: Peak Design straps and tethers...

Those reports are from 2014, with the first version of their product. And it was very limited in scope. (7 out of 1,000,000 customers) They are now on version 4 of their quick release product.

Those figures for failure, given by Peak Design, are far too low compared to the number of publicly posted complaints that I have seen.  They had to redesign the tethers several times due to continued reports of failure.  I also know from personal experience that their "damage control" involves deleting complaints of design flaws - as recently as 2019.  If you want to use their products, you MUST accept the risks involved.  They accept NO responsibility for the loss or damage of your products.
