Default Petzl MYO headlamp design defect

Anyone using a MYO headlamp should look at this ASAP.
If you have the older design contact Petzl before you lamp craps out on you.

The cord going into the main housing doesn't have a stress relief and will fail eventually.

I have had 2 MYO's and they both died because of this fault.

Even with the unit being marked 2008

Petzl sent this

Unfortunately, we were unable to repair your lamp, however your lamp is covered by our Three Year Guarantee. A replacement headlamp is being shipped out to you on the next business day.
