Capital Safety Introduces EZ Stop® II Tie-Back Lanyard with Rebar Hooks



RED WING, Minn. - April 1, 2008 - DBI-SALA, a Capital Safety brand, introduces the EZ Stop® II Tie-back Lanyard with rebar hooks. The new ANSI Z359.1-2007 rebar hooks feature 3,600-pound gates, allowing them to be used in tie-back applications with a floating D-ring, giving the user greater versatility on the job.

The EZ Stop® II is available in a single or twin-leg tie-back model with a standard snap hook, aluminum rebar hook, flat steel rebar hook or carabiner ends. A floating D-ring provides an adjustable tie-back point so the lanyard can be used around various structures at a job site. The EZ Stop® II lanyard utilizes a controlled tearing action when subjected to fall arrest forces, limiting arresting forces to no more than 900 lbs. Abrasion resistant tubular webbing covers an additional layer of polyester web, for the ultimate in durability.

Prior to the introduction of ANSI Z359.1-2007 compliant snap hooks, large rebar hooks were not approved for tie-back applications. Connection of rebar type hooks with large gate openings to standard size D-rings is not restricted with the new 3,600-pound gated snap hooks, provided the snap hook or carabiner is free to align with the applied load as intended.

"The EZ Stop® II with rebar hooks and tie-back connection provides greater versatility in the field," states Nate Bohmbach, product marketing manager for soft goods with Capital Safety. "The lanyard allows the user to connect to various anchorage points or tie back around them."

The EZ Stop® II Tieback Lanyard with rebar hooks meets all applicable industry standards, including OSHA and ANSI Z359-2007.
