3M™ DBI-SALA® EZ-Stop™ Leading Edge Cable Shock Absorbing Lanyard 

The 3M™ DBI-SALA® EZ-Stop™ Leading Edge Cable Shock Absorbing Lanyard combines a set of “industry first” advancements, with popular features making them the workhorse of the industry. EZ Stop™ lanyards are as tough as the guys who use them. They feature the world’s smallest and lightest shock absorber, water repellant and abrasion resistant webbing, cable lanyard legs for leading-edge work, foot-level tie-off or applications with abrasive surfaces or environments and a build quality that is second to none. The lanyard also features 3M™ patented self locking snap hooks which are widely recognized in the industry for their user friendly operation and are preferred by safety professionals and workers alike. Specifically designed to allow you to open and connect the hook without getting your thumb or fingers in the way even with gloves on.

In addition, their exclusive Vectran™ energy management materials provide second to none abrasion, cut and chemical resistance and efficient shock absorption. Should a fall occur, the EZ-Stop™ lanyard and it’s unique energy absorbing system will activate, stopping the fall and reducing the forces imposed on the user to safe levels. The 3M™ DBI-SALA® EZ-Stop™ Leading Edge Cable Shock Absorbing Lanyard represents the culmination of decades of design, research, manufacturing know how and on the job performance. 

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.
