~ EDIT

Hi all,

Does anyone know what might be the reason for this hanger to crack in this manner?

background:
~ Placed on granite (ex quarry), with water run off from the top of the crag. This is Singapore, Dairy Farm. All ClimbX hangers have since been removed by bolter & cracked hanger have been sent back to manufacturer. Location have no issue with salt/salty water/wind etc.
~ Hanger was in place since around Nov 2012
~ This is one of 2 that shows crack. Another one is cracked at the top between clip-hole and bolt hole.Link to pic of both hanger http://imgur.com/a/WlmXr
~ other hangers of this brand shows more tarnishing/rust vs other brand that is being used locally (fixe, petzl, etc)
~ DON'T KNOW if there were abnormal loading on these hangers.
