New Capital Safety Saflok Max™ Connector Can Attach Directly to a Variety of Large Anchor Points

Sponsored by

With its new Saflok Max™ all-purpose connector, Capital Safety is changing the shape of fall protection. The new snap hook, offered on DBI-SALA fall arrest and positioning lanyards, features a rectangular body and three-inch gate opening providing direct connection to a variety of larger anchor points.

The versatility of the all-purpose connector can help reduce equipment costs by giving the user more tie-off options without the need for additional anchorage connectors. The connector fits a variety of popular concrete forms and other structures that have traditionally presented tie-off challenges such as lattice and tubular steel structures found on towers, wind energy poles and scaffolding.

"Facing a tough economy, companies need equipment that multitasks," said Nate Bohmbach, product manager for soft goods with Capital Safety. "In many cases, DBI-SALA lanyards outfitted with the Saflok Max™ all-purpose connector eliminate the need for a separate anchorage connector. It also makes training on multiple pieces of equipment unnecessary."

DBI-SALA Shockwave™ and EZ-Stop™ shock absorbing lanyards as well as positioning chain rebar assemblies can now be fitted with the Saflok Max™ all-purpose connector. The hook and lanyards are compliant with OSHA and ANSI standards including the stringent ANSI Z359.1-2007.

Capital Safety, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of height safety and fall protection equipment with 9 operating sites worldwide, is home of the DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands. All of Capital Safety's fall protection and rescue systems are backed by the best training, technical assistance and customer service in the industry.
