127 HOURS Follow Up - Thanks for All the TIKKAs

In January, 2010, the makers of the film 127 HOURS approached Petzl with a request. They wanted help tracking down the exact model and color of TIKKA headlamp that Aron Ralston wore during his ordeal in the Utah desert, around which the film is based. The props department used photos Ralston took of himself while trapped, his arm pinned between a boulder and the wall of a slot canyon, to identify the three-LED TIKKA and other objects Ralston had with him at that time. (It's not a spoiler to say that Ralston eventually amputated his own arm in order to escape.)
