antiSHOCK Tool Lanyard
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, or with no hardware.
Note: The Carabiner version of this strap has a very tight carabiner loop. Use DMM Phantom screw lock carabiner or similar small carabiner for best fit.
