Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands of fall protection equipment, introduces the new and improved DBI-SALA® EZ-Stop™ Lanyard. Lighter, stronger and more durable than ever, the EZ-Stop Lanyard is the industry’s first modular lanyard designed with components that can be replaced individually when worn or damaged, rather than having to purchase an entire new unit. It also features the smallest shock pack in the world, as well as the lightest and strongest webbing and steel rebar hooks on the market.
The new EZ-Stop Lanyard was created as a cost-effective alternative to competing products. The patented one-handed quick connect design offers maximum versatility, allowing users to change pieces on the spot to accommodate various tasks and job requirements, such as leg length, rebar hook size and single or twin leg configuration.
“We base a lot of our new product development on what we hear from customers; what their specific needs are,” said Jacob Shevick, soft goods product manager at Capital Safety at Capital Safety. “We kept hearing that there was an industry need for a product with replaceable parts — not only for the cost-effectiveness of it, but also for the flexibility. The EZ-Stop is a unique product that meets those needs across industries.”
The EZ-Stop Lanyard also features the lightest and strongest components on the market. The new shock pack is 66 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than competing products, making it the smallest available shock pack in the world. It is equipped with 3/4-inch webbing (the thinnest ever offered), which reduces weight and excess bulk for the wearer. The updated steel and aluminum rebar hooks are another industry first for DBI-SALA, featuring a patented locking nose design and a dual-action 3,600-pound gate for ANSI compliance and increased strength.
All components are made with Repel™ water repellent webbing to reduce the attraction of mold and dirt, leading to better abrasion resistance. The EZ-Stop Lanyard’s superior design is equipped with i-Safe™ technology, which allows it to be tracked in inventory and tagged with usage data. The EZ-Stop meets all applicable OSHA and ANSI industry standards.
