Choice of carabiner for connecting a ZILLON or GRILLON lanyard to the harness
When the lanyard is tensioned and released, there can be poor positioning and rubbing between the carabiner and the harness attachment point, and rubbing or pressure against the locking sleeve by equipment or by the user’s body.
Recommendation on carabiner and accessories
Whenever possible, use a semi-permanent connector that locks with a tool.
If your equipment must be frequently attached, use an Am’D TRIACT-LOCK or Am’D BALL-LOCK with a CAPTIV positioning system.
Why this choice?
If the user can keep the lanyard permanently attached to the harness, a semi-permanent connector is an ideal solution.
If the user wants the ability to detach the lanyard from the harness, the CAPTIV bar helps prevent most poor positioning of the Am’D.
Precautions for use
The remaining risk of the locking sleeve rubbing against the harness attachment point, equipment, or external items, must be monitored by the user.
Peace on your Days
