  • VARIO adjustment system allows the lanyard length to be adjusted from 3' 3'' to 4' 9'' in order to reduce the potential fall height
  • Absorbs energy in case of a fall:
    - Tearing of the energy absorber webbing limits the impact force on the user
    - Works with users who weigh between 110 lbs and 287 lbs.
    - Progressive tearing reduces the deceleration on lightweight users
  • Minimal bulk: compact energy absorber facilitates handling
  • Durable fabric pouch with opening system at each end, protects the energy absorber from abrasion or contaminants while allowing for regular inspection of the absorber
  • Two options for installation on the harness, depending on use:
    - Frequent connection/disconnection: with a carabiner held in correct position by the STRING positioning accessory (included with the lanyard)
    - Semi-permanent connection: with a RING OPEN gated ring, whose circular shape ensures optimal positioning
  • Two connector options for the end of the lanyard: a locking carabiner, or MGO OPEN connector with large gate opening
