Types of lanyards

There are two different types of lanyards: positioning lanyards, which control where you’re physically able to move to in order to keep you from entering a fall hazard zone, and shock absorbing lanyards which contain an energy-absorbing unit to limit fall arrest forces in the case of a fall.

When choosing a connecting device like a lanyard or a self-retracting lifeline (SRL), it’s important to consider the conditions of your work environment. From harsh marine and mining, oil and gas and everything in between, getting the best use out of a connecting device depends on selecting the right products for the application and your environment.

    • These lanyards dissipate energy, limiting the forces on your body during a fall
  • Tubular-style energy-absorbing lanyards

    • Feature an internal energy absorber that dissipates the energy of a fall
    • Available in both a traditional fixed-length design and a “stretch” style that expands and contracts
  • Twin-leg lanyards

    • Two lanyards that are connected at one end Used
    • to provide 100% tie-off, allowing you to stay protected when moving from one location to another

Steel and aluminum rebar lock hooks

Fits around most structures with a 63.55 mm (2.5 in.) gate opening to maximize inner diameter.

Steel and aluminum rebar lock hooks

Ergonomic design for enhanced functionality and better fit in the palm of your hand.


The standard length lanyard is 6 ft. but shorter and longer options are available. A lanyard should be long enough to be user-friendly, but kept short as possible to minimize the free fall distance.


Must be strong enough to endure rough use and exposure to sunlight and other elements. We offer specialized webbing for different applications.

Impact indicators

Lets you see if an energy absorber has been involved in a fall. If deployed, the lanyard must be removed from service immediately.


Connects the worker to the anchorage point.

Energy absorber

Limits fall arrest forces during a fall to less than 1,800 lbs (8 kN).

Steel and aluminum rebar lock hooks

Patent-pending, locking gate/nose design for maximum strength and security.
