What Is Lanyard And What Are Lanyard Assemblies?
Lanyard is a general term for ropes and cords. When we think of ropes, we may think of thicker, more heavy-duty lines. The lanyard category includes these ropes, but it can also include thinner types of cording. Some types of lanyard US Rigging carries include flipline, tree climbing lanyard, and positioning lanyard. In addition, to stand-alone lines, we also carry a number of lanyard assembly kits, which include additional hardware like rope grabs and carabiners. Aside from popular lines of arborist equipment, we also carry lanyards designed for tower climbers.
What Are Some Of The Most Popular Lanyard Assemblies?
Our Lanyard Kits are popular choices for climbers because they conveniently package together various components of a lanyard system. This saves customers a little bit of time, a lot of energy, and a little bit of money. These assemblies are made up of a lanyard and a rope grab. Kits are available with additional hooks or carabiners included.
Removable Better Grab Arborist Flipline Kits - This is one of our most popular kits because it includes the revolutionary, fully removable rope grab. The Better Grab line of rope grabs was already quite popular for its reliability and superior design. The Removable model of the Better Grab rope brake is especially popular, because it can be easily removed without having to cut tension by deconstructing a rigging system.
Features Of Removable Better Grab Arborist Flipline Kits:
- Sturdy Swivel Eye Included In Every Kit
- Grab Features A Large Thumb Rest For Precise Control
- Includes A Flipline And A Rope Grab Conveniently In One Kit
- Removable Rope Grabs Can Be Easily Detached From A Rigging System
All In One Flipline Kits - Another popular rope assembly kit is the All In One Flipline Kit because in addition to including a flip line and rope grab, it also includes a copper carabiner. This saves customers the trouble of picking out the right carabiner for the setup and the excellent flipline is designed with improved flex fatigue. Just as the name implies, this truly is an all-in-one package.
Features Of The All In One Flipline Kit:
- Flipline Has Improved Flex Fatigue
- Shrink Tubing Allows For Better Visibility
- Includes Flipline, Rope Grab, And A Carabiner
What Is Positioning Lanyard?
Positioning Lanyard is a cord that connects a climber to an anchoring spot on a rigging system. These cords are designed as part of a restraining system and not part of a fall arrest system. US Rigging offers general-purpose Positioning Lanyards, as well as Positioning Lanyards designed specifically for arborists and Tower Positioning Lanyards. Pelican Rope’s E-Z Mover Tower Positioning Lanyard is an especially kit as it includes the popular Static Master Rope and a special Kong Trimmer rope grab with an ergonomic design for increased control.
What Is A Vertical Lifeline?
Vertical Lifelines are cords that are designed to be attached to a point above the climber. This may be from a ladder or from the top of a building. As one may assume from the name, this system provides extra safety for difficult climbs by preventing climbers from slipping backward. Our partners at Pelican Rope create Vertical Lifelines which are engineered to resist water absorption. Since they are made of Polyester, they also provide better grip and extra protection against abrasion.
What Is A Ring Friction Saver?
A Ring Friction Saver is a device engineered specifically for arborists. As the name implies, it decreases the amount of friction imposed on a tree. This makes knots and hitches more responsive during climbs, which saves your energy as you climb. It also reduces damage caused to both the tree and the rope during your climbs.
What Are Some Other Types Of Lanyard?
Aside from Positioning Lanyard, Vertical Fliplines, and Arborist Fliplines, a number of other types of lanyard exist.
A Few Other Types Of Lanyard:
- Steel Core Lanyard Flipline With Low Stretch And Cut Resistance
- Chainsaw Lanyard Flipline That Can Be Hitched To A Saw Handle
- Adjustable Work Lanyard For Quick Adjustment At A Workstation
- Lineman’s Rope- Term Used Primarily In Hunting For Positioning Lanyard
