It is well-known that for vibro-impact systems an existence of a periodic solution with a low-velocity impact (so-called grazing) may yield a complex behavior of solutions. Slightly changing the parameters of a system with grazing, we may obtain a periodic solution which passes near the delimiter without touching it. In this paper we show that sometimes existence of these solutions can provide chaos.
