215 Gear’s Operator Retention Lanyards

215 Gear’s Operator Retention Lanyard (Frog Style)

215 Gear has developed a family of retention lanyards used to secure the wearer to a fixed point like say, a helicopter floor, and one of these new lanyards is like no other on the market. The Frog style utilizes a Frog carabiner which in the climbing world serves the same purpose as utilizing dual carabiners. Additionally, it is easier to use than a standard carabiner or pelican clip (snap shackle) because it closes automatically when in contact with an anchor point. The Frog style lanyard comes with one end fitted with a snap shackle and the other end with a Frog fitting. The snap shackle connects to the first line belt or harness and the Frog carabiner to the anchor point. Manufactured from Mil-Spec 1” tubular is rated to 4,000 lbs with eight, 42 stitch bartacks on each running end, the Frog is rated to 26 KN (approximately 5,850 lbs).
