The Shockwave2 Tie-Back Lanyard combines an elastic leg feature with the benefits of a tie-back lanyard. The tie-back feature eliminates the need for a separate anchorage connector by allowing the lanyard to be wrapped around a structural element with a diameter of up to 3’ and connected back onto the leg of the lanyard. The lanyard expands to 6’ and retracts to 4 ½ ’ in reaction to the worker’s movement, staying out of the worker’s way to reduce trip hazards, dragging and snagging. The Shockwave2 is abrasion-resistant and equipped with two indicator stitches: one that identifies the farthest point the user should tie-back to, and another to notify the user or inspector that the lanyard has been impacted. The Shockwave2 Tie-Back Lanyard is available in a single leg or twin leg model for 100% tie-off. The lanyards are ANSI Z359-2007 and OSHA compliant and are i-Safe enabled.

Working at heights does not always allow for convenient access to a toolbox. With this challenge in mind, Capital Safety has developed a line of tool bags designed to connect effortlessly and securely to full body harnesses. DBI-SALA’s line of tool bags includes an 11-pocket and 15-pocket model. The 11-pocket bag accommodates a variety of tools and fasteners including a combination square and pry bar. The 15-pocket model includes an iron hammer loop and removable top pouch for a tape measure. The tool bags attach effortlessly to most full body harnesses by sliding onto the belt before buckling, ensuring a secure connection. The bags are constructed of 1680D ballistic nylon with PVC reinforced pouch bases for puncture and tear resistance. Nickel-plated iron storm drains keep pouches ventilated while plated iron rivets reinforce stress points.

With 15’ of galvanized cable lifeline, the new Protecta Rebel CT Self Retracting lifeline (SRL) delivers the greatest working range among economy class SRLs, maximizing mobility and worker productivity. The compact, lightweight design of the Rebel CT increases worker comfort and reduces fatigue compared to heavier SRLs. At only 6.4 lbs, the Rebel CT features an excellent length-to-weight ratio. The rugged aluminum housing and steel working components offer exceptional durability, while the cable lifeline provides added protection against heat and abrasion. The included shock pack reduces the forces exerted on the user in a fall event, acts as an impact indicator for visual inspection, and has a Kevlar/Nomex covering for protection against the elements. A speed sensing brake keeps forces to a minimum and reduces clearance requirements. The Rebel CT meets all applicable industry standards, including OSHA and ANSI Z359-2007.
