Cynch-Lok pole climber fall protection systems feature effortless adjustment and "cynches" around the pole during a "cut-out." Cynch-Lok systems meet CSA Z259.14 standards for Type A and AB (dry, wet, and icy poles) and ASTM F887. Cynch-Lok systems allow users to easily hitch-hike poles (move or jump the strap upwards) with a comfortable hand position, moving past obstacles without difficulty. Exterior strap can be easily swapped out on the job depending on pole size, eliminating the need for multiple systems. This strap features an extended maximum working diameter to accomodate transmission poles.
