Purchased an Edelrid Ohm a few weeks ago tonuse lead climbing with a few lighter climbing partners. Works great!
One issue I've noticed after 3-4 days of climbing is that the spring that is supposed to close the lever doesn't seem to close the gate automatically anymore. Once I manually shut it, it seems to hold fine.
Didn't know if mine is an isolated issue or if this is common. Let me know.
I haven’t seen that in 2 years of use on mine either. I’d contact Edelrid. That’s not acceptable on a new piece of gear.
Hope you have better luck with them than I did when I contacted them about a broken thumb loop on a Mega Jul. They told me I had abused the gear and blew me off. I hadn’t. It broke while packing my pack on a cold day. They just didn’t want to stand behind the product.
Haven't seen it. I'd return it to Edelrid for repair or replacement. Actually, first check to be sure there's nothing sticking the latch open, like grit or some lump of goo. If it's clean, email Edelrid.
