    Pieps is this morning announcing a ďVoluntary Product Correction ProgramĒ in Europe. This will be followed up by a voluntary recall in the US.

    Why lame? This solves the problem by augmenting the useless lock mechanism and keeps functional electronics out of landfills. What's the downside? Minor pain to store it outside the harness?

    I think a Pieps engineer got a nice fat bonus for figuring this out. Pretty good solution that is cheaper and less wasteful than replacing the entire beacon. I didn't watch the whole video but I assume they're giving these out for free?

    I already got replacements for mine but I would have been happy with this solution.

    exactly. I saw this 3d printing solution posted on facebook months ago. They just integrated it into a harness.

    I hate wearing my beacon as a harness. Only buy pants with a beacon pocket. For me, I wouldn't be happy with this solution.

    But if there are people that feel it's satisfactory, great.

    It looks like the "hip belt" is very minimal, if the shoulder harness could be easily removed then make the entire hard case can go into the pocket with the beacon. Not elegant but better than trashing an otherwise useful device.

    Pieps DSP Pro broken switch

    don’t do that - get a replacement or at least a new harness

    to be honest I think the new harness thing is bullshit - I’d want a new beacon


    I still have a 40% off code for Mammut if anyone is still looking for something different.

    I still use the new DSP Pro, but also Barryvox and BCA T4.

    If i toured more, i'd take you up on the code offer -- very generous! i hope someone takes you up on it

    the dsp replacements i got will be sufficient for me given the low miles they will see -- i'm not abusing the switches

    for anyone putting heavy miles on their units, i agree the harness conversion is another admission of poor engineering on the switch. We'll see a new switch/unit redesign soon, i imagine.

    the new DSP switch is better than the old one

    but yeah Iíll bet it gets a total redesign soon
