3M EZ-Stop™ Leading Edge Shock Absorbing Lanyard



Shock Absorbing Lanyard for Leading Edge

What is a leading edge?

According to OSHA 1926.751, ''leading edge'' means the unprotected side and edge of a floor, roof, or formwork for a floor or other walking/working surface (such as a deck) which changes location as additional floor, roof, decking or formwork sections are placed, formed or constructed.

To visualize a leading-edge situation, imagine a worker installing steel decking on​ a new building. Now picture the worker's fall protection system is anchored at foot level behind ​him. As the worker moves out and away from the anchor point while installing the decking, the worker is exposed to a potential fall over the edge of the building. This can also be considered a leading edge. A typical leading edge will force the lanyard or lifeline to bend over the edge. Also, many leading edges present sharp edge hazards.

EZ-Stop™ leading-edge shock-absorbing lanyards

It combines a set of “industry-first” advancements, with popular features making them the workhorse of the industry. Today’s EZ-Stop™ represents the culmination of decades of design, research, manufacturing know-how and on-the-job performance.

This is a 6 ft. (1.8m) single-leg cable with snap hook at one end and steel rebar hook at the other end. It features the world’s smallest and lightest shock absorber and is built with cable lanyard legs for leading-edge work, foot-level tie-off or applications with abrasive surfaces or environments. In addition, the exclusive Hi-10™ Vectran™ energy management materials provide second-to-none abrasion, cut and chemical resistance, and efficient shock absorption. More benefits are in the feature section

Should a fall occur, the lanyard and its unique energy absorbing system will activate stopping the fall and reducing the forces imposed on the user to safe levels.

Leading Edge Tool - Energy Absorbing Lanyard
  • 6 ft. (1.8m) single-leg lanyard:
    Long enough to be user-friendly, but kept as short as possible to minimize free fall distance.

    - Edge-certified and abrasion-resistant
    - Extremely durable cable construction provides added field longevity and more protection in high-temperature environments.
  • Extremely compact and lightweight:
    -Feature the world's smallest shock absorber and thinnest webbing for improved ease of use and comfort.
  • Self-locking gate/nose steel rebar hook one end
    - Their patented self-locking snap hooks are widely recognized in the industry for their user-friendly operation and are preferred by safety professionals and workers alike.

    - The 2-1/2" (62.5mm) large gate opening fits over larger anchorage structures.
  • Exclusive Hi-10™ Vectran™ energy absorption system: 
    High tenacity performance delivers excellent abrasion, cut, and chemical resistance, and immediately begins to extend and absorb energy during a fall, limiting arresting forces to safe levels.
  • Built-in reflective materials: 
    Integrated on the shock absorber cover for enhanced visibility in low light conditions.
  • Protected labels, equipped with i-Safe™ 
    A Velcro® cover protects lanyard labels and holds an i-Safe™identification tag for recording and storing information on inspections.
  • Engineered for work on sharp edges: 
    Web and rope lanyards can break on sharp edges such as I-beams or concrete, this model with steel cable provide safe foot level tie-off on sharp edges - passing the stringent ANSI edge testing.
  • Impact indicator: 
    A deployed energy absorber will allow a user to visually see if the lanyard has been involved in a fall, providing a safe, simple and reliable inspection.
