Exclamation Peak Design Anchor Flaws!!

Peak Design have announced that there is a design flaw in the third version of their Anchor connectors as there have been 7 reported failures of the connector reported to them. (The ones with the very slim cords.)

More details given here: https://www.dpreview.com/news/030388...4010_132618830

If you have any of the third version (or first for that matter) you can complete their online survey to get free replacements (version 4) sent to you.


Black OM-D E-M1 MkII, Silver PEN-F, Black Lumix GX7, and too many lenses!

Re: Peak Design Anchor Flaws!!

I have a number of these attached to various cameras so I will have to check which ones they are tonight. I have had them all a while mind you and I reckon they are the thicker ones so I should be OK.
BTW I love the PD straps.
