Carabiners, also called karabiners, safety hooks, and quick links are common connectors and hooks used in height safety applications. They’re typically utilised as lanyard connectors or safety harness connectors. They are an important piece of equipment when working at heights that ensure a quick and secure connection between harnesses, lanyards, and a proper anchor point.
Connectors such as karabiners, which are a D-shaped ring with a spring gate, are also utilised. Screw-locking, twist-locking, and triple-locking systems are available. Triple-lock karabiners are the easiest to use and the safest choice.
However, they must be discarded if the sleeve does not shut correctly. Anchor connections should be made with twist-lock karabiners; however, they should not be utilised at the lanyard’s harness end. Screw-lock karabiners require extra caution to keep the gate’s screw sleeve screwed up.
Delta Links & Quick Links
An oval shape fast link and a Delta link are two quick links we provide as part of our connectors line. Both varieties provide a semi-permanent connection, making them suitable for situations when two objects will be linked for the most of the time, such as when a lanyard is attached to a safety harness. To guarantee that the screw lock remains safe and firmly connected, make sure it is properly tightened to its maximum and tested before each usage.
Connectors for Use in Height Safety Applications
Some of the most widely used hooks for working at height and fall arrest applications may be found in this category of connectors and hooks. The snap hook is ideal for connecting separate components of your height safety equipment, such as a harness and lanyard, but the scaffold hook, with its wider aperture and hook bowl, is ideal for securing a lanyard to a stable anchor point, such as a scaffold pole or handrail.
Our snap hooks have double action, which means that once installed, an extra locking mechanism will close off the opening gate, preventing it from being accidentally opened.
