Some jobs sites just don't have any convenient anchorage points. That's why the Miller BackBiter Tie-Back Lanyard is a great piece of equipment. This 6 ft. lanyard with a SofStop Shock-absorber allows you to wrap the lanyard around a structural element and hook it back to itself for reliable and safe fall protection.
It's the anchor hook that makes it possible. If you are using this product you probably already know you can't use a regular lanyard in this fashion. The BackBiter lanyard has an attachment snap hook that is rated up to 5,000 lbs. minimum gate load capacity.
Since you could lift a pickup truck with a 5,000 lb. capacity hook, chances are this rugged lanyard is more than sufficient to keep you from a hard landing. Tie-back lanyards also help to reduce overall inventory by eliminating the need for Anchorage Tie-Off Straps or dropping in a permanant anchor point.
Miller fall protection products have a rock-solid reputation in the field. The SofStop shock-absorber pack stops fall inertia and keeps fall forces under OSHA and ANSI thresholds. This 913B/6FTGN BackBiter also meets the 900 lb. fall force maximum of the ANSI Z359.13 standard.
If you need to connect to a structure with limited anchorage opportunities, consider using the BackBiter 913B/6FTGN from the fall protection experts at Miller by Honeywell.
