Stainless steel fall protection cable grabs for use on 5/16" and 3/8" aircraft cable. Our customers typically use 3/8" galvanized cable with a 7 x 19 twist for their cable lifelines. These units will also fit 7mm wire rope cable, if that is specified for you fall arrest system.

Rope Grabs with lanyard and shock packs
These units are made with a permanently attached lanyard extension or shock absorber. They can serve many applications, with the most common attaching the rope grab to a vertical lifeline rope and the lanyard extension or shock pack to the back d-ring of the harness. Some vertical lifeline ropes come with a shock absorber integrated onto the top part of the lifeline rope, so you would only need a non shock absorbing lanyard extension. For regular lifeline rope, you should use one that has an attached shock absorber to the rope grab.
