The Force2 Lanyard is ideal for when there is no overhead anchorage and your only option is to tie-off at your feet. It can be used for up to a 12 ft. (3.7 m) free fall, or as a standard lanyard up to a 6 ft. (1.8 m) free fall for workers that require a capacity of 311 to 420 lbs. (141-190 kg). The Force2 is the world's smallest and lightest shock absorber and our exclusive Hi-10 Vectran energy management materials provide second-to-none abrasion, cut and chemical resistance and efficient shock absorption. Should a fall occur, the lanyard and its unique energy absorbing system will activate stopping the fall and reduce the forces imposed on the user to safe levels. The Force2 Lanyard features our patented self-locking snap hooks which are widely recognized in the industry for their user friendly operation and are preferred by safety professionals and workers alike. The hooks are specifically designed to allow you to open and connect them without getting your thumb or fingers in the way, even with gloves on.
