Designed for use in 100% tie-off fall-arrest systems. Allows attachment to a new fall-arrest anchorage with one lanyard leg, while staying connected to the original fall-arrest anchorage with the remaining lanyard leg.
Deceleration unit is attached to two 1/2" (13 mm) diameter nylon-filament rope lanyards.
Long-strand nylon filament lanyard construction provides high tensile strength and excellent elasticity.
Equipped with three drop-forged steel, corrosion-resistant Klein-Lok locking snap-hooks with 11/16" (17 mm) throat opening.
Designed solely for use in fall-arrest systems.
Overlapped nylon webbing is heavily cross-stitched together with nylon thread and sewn into a protective break-away jacket for optimal fall-arrest impact reduction.
Progressive tearing away of nylon stitching absorbs most of a fall-arrest impact.
A fully released deceleration unit extends the original length of a lanyard by a total of 3.5 ft (1 m) and virtually eliminates rebound.
Deceleration units are available separately or with permanently attached lanyards made of nylon rope, aircraft cable, or nylon webbing.
All Klein deceleration units are certified and compliant with ANSI and CSA requirements.
On Klein deceleration units, a red warning label stitched to the overlapped nylon webbing inside the protective break-away jacket will identify a used lanyard and direct the disposal of the unit.
