Pole climbing straps are designed for positioning on utility poles. Most are not suited to tree climbing, as they can not be adjusted while in use. Flat nylon lanyards are useful in similar ways, and also can be used for a quick safety connection on towers and other work sites. The Petzl Grillon is a top quality that comes with its own adjuster and can be used in many situations.
Great for utility pole climbing, these straps are made by Buckingham manufacturing, a leader in safety and utility equipment. The material is Nybuck, a neoprene impregnated nylon that is stronger and more durable than leather and resistant to mold, rot, and mildew. Length adjusts with a tongue buckle. Not recommended for tree climbing.
