Originally used in Germany, these small plastic clips are used to help arrange and manage the excess lanyard on your tree climbing saddle. Ideally for use with positioning lanyards up to 1/2″ in diameter. Sold in a pack of three in assorted colours.
Odis Sisk of Georgia tells about his experience using these clips: “The same 2 lanyard clips remain unscathed on my harness for almost a year now. The material is durable and flexible allowing the clips to bend without breaking during climbing operations. The clips hold fast to the accessory loops of most arborist harnesses.
The lanyard becomes b-directional when placed in the clip. The lanyard clip holds the cordage firmly enough that it doesn’t payout unintentionally. If the lanyard gets pulled aggressively downward the cordage will slip from the two clip jaws. This is a benefit if the lanyard becomes entangled on foliage while moving rapidly or swinging between branches. I use three lanyard clips on one side of my harness. Two holding cordage and the 3rd holding the termination end.”
Important Installation Note: If the lanyard clip doesn’t easily slip onto your gear loop a pair of needle nose pliers should be used. Carefully use the pliers to aid the cordage into the connection point as shown in the above photo. Line the pliers up parallel with the upper “mouth” of the clip and press down forcing the loop into the mouth. A good amount of force may be required so please watch your fingers!
If you are having trouble installing the clips you can always manually tie them to your saddle with some 5mm accessory cord. You can also use a round chainsaw file to create more space in the upper groove which connects the clip to your gear loop.
