A new lightweight version of our popular 9-8 secondary lanyard. Features an aluminum snap hook and carabiner that meet the ANSI requirements for 3600 pound gates. At 2.2 pounds, it comes in 27% lighter than equivalent lanyards with steel hardware. Other Buckingham innovations include a twisted eye length adjusting device (LAD) to properly orient it on the users body belt and a red warning center to alert the user of excessive wear. A stitched eye allows the user to stow excess tail on a hand line hook. A multicolored snap hook allows user to easily distinguish it from the snaps on the SuperSqueeze™, BuckSqueeze™, or the new EZSqueeze™. Features a fabric wear guard to protect the rope from excessive wear. A rubber washer prevents wear guard from getting jammed in the length adjusting device (LAD.) It is ideal for use on towers or other steel structures and remains flexible in colder climates. Meets applicable ANSI, OSHA and ASTM standards.
