Any person working at heights on structures like towers or scaffolding know how important it is to be able to anchor to the structure itself.
“The search for a connector that can be tied off in multiple directions is over,” said Nate Safe, product designer at 3M Personal Safety Division. “Many of the hooks on the market can be a nuisance to open where the operator’s hand is placed right in the opening creating a pain point. The Comfort Grip Connector opens and closes easily and comes with a hand guard so knuckles are protected while making a connection.”
Designed and certified to arrest a fall when loaded in multiple orientations, the Comfort Grip Connector helps provide a 5,000-pound tensile strength as well as up to 3,600 pounds in transverse and gate strengths. When connected to a vertical or transverse application, such as a pipe, the hand-guard pin shears in the event of a fall to allow the connector to align with the direction of the fall and remain securely anchored.
