Here you will find tool straps to attach to your tree climbing saddle and saw lanyards. We have a variety of tool straps and lanyards, and several styles of saw lanyards, including breakaway bungee lanyards. Our most popular non-bungee lanyards are the quick-shortening saw straps which can function as a long or short lanyard in seconds. Our breakaway lanyards are also very popular for their break-away feature, which tears away under shock load to protect the climber from being pulled out of the tree. We also have some great ditty bags for attaching to your saddle.
This Antishock tool lanyard has been designed by Teufelberger to protect the climber in the case that the climber's saw becomes hung up in a falling branch or top. This Antishock lanyard protects the climber with a tear-away webbing pack, which activates if 2.0 - 2.2 kN (roughly 450 to 500 lb) of force is applied to the saw. The webbing in the pack deploys, but it does not tear-away completely. This means that you won't watch your saw plummet to the ground if it is only momentarily caught up, and the force on the climber is greatly reduced.
However, if the extra distance provided by the initial deployment of the tear-away webbing does not free the saw, the webbing will tear open completely after 27.5" (70cm) and the saw will detach from the climber, preventing further injury from the stuck saw applying force to the user through the harness.
The Antishock lanyard is treated to be extra tough, and is available with choice of anodized ring or carabiner.
Note: The Carabiner version of this strap has a very tight carabiner loop. Use DMM Phantom screw lock carabiner or similar small 'biner for best fit.
Bungee lanyard breaks away at 250 lb. shock load. Designed to prevent the climber from being carried out of the tree by a falling load snagging on the chainsaw. NOT for chainsaws over 15 lb.
Options: 50" Lanyard with Ring on lead end (yellow); 46" Lanyard with Snap on lead end (black).

Attaches anywhere with 2 Malice clips (included). The best pouch around! Made in the U.S.A.

Removable suspenders help keep saddle in place when loaded with equipment. Adjustable suspenders are not load bearing or designed for fall protection, but can increase comfort and help keep the saddle from slipping down. Requires a carabiner to attach to the loop in back of most saddles. (Carabiners available separately here.)
