The Gri Gri is not a self locking device, it is an assisted locking device, it is possible for the cam not to activate if the rope slowly accelerates, it requires a shock loading to activate the cam. An example of a less dynamic loading would be the climber falling while level with a bolt while there is minimal slack in the system.

If you are still confident that the gri gri is a self locking device i would suggest reading the instructions or googling gri gri accidents.
