  • Geepers Kreepers Lanyard Keepers

    Great title eh? Today I'd like to share a feature that can be found some harnesses, but you may not know what the heck they are. Throughout our store I throw out the term lanyard keepers, and although I do my best to explain it I thought I'd share a little more.

    Lanyard keepers are usually found on a harness near the chest straps. In fact, there is usually one on both sides of your harness. They often look little d-rings or clips. (These are not shoulder d-rings. Those are located on your shoulders. duh.) Lanyard keepers "keep" your lanyards out of the way when you're not using them.

    Imagine, you're taking your lunch, so you unhook your lanyard from the anchor and go get your lunch box. Take the the snap hook you just released from your anchor point and attach it to the lanyard keeper. This way it's not dragging behind you getting damaged or creating a trip hazard. Sweet huh?

    Some lanyard keepers are break way, so in case you accidentally stepped on your lanyard, you wouldn't trip over it. And! They also work very well with dual leg lanyards (100% tie off). You can keep the lanyard you aren't using attached to the keeper and work away.

    Hopefully, we've supplied you with a little more information on this little gadget. If this seems like something you'd like on your next harness be on the lookout for it. Or give us a call and we can point you in the right direction.
