Residential Fall-protection Anchor Is Permanent

Qualcraft Industries' HitchClip

Qualcraft Industries’ HitchClip

Qualcraft Industries, a division of Guardian Fall Protection, has released a versatile residential fall-protection anchor: the HitchClip. Made from durable and lightweight powder-coated aluminum, the HitchClip is quick and easy to install (with six screws or six nails), and functions as a permanent anchor point. Because it may be permanently installed, the HitchClip not only adds value to any home, but also helps reduce costs for contractors by allowing them to save money on temporary or one-use anchor options.

The HitchClip, which is now fully available to purchase, comes in black, gray or brown, and its sleek design allows it to easily blend in with nearly any roof. Its patented “key-hole” connection point allows it to be used as a standard fall-protection anchor and also in combination with numerous attachment accessories, such as Qualcraft’s Bunk Jack, Roof Jack, Guardrails, Workbench, Platform Stage, Solar Panel Rack Bracket, and many more.

GearKeeper's RT5-5601 Hardhat Lanyard System

GearKeeper’s RT5-5601 Hardhat Lanyard System

In the event of a fall, a fall-arrest harness will protect the worker but not the worker’s hardhat. The retractable RT5-5601 Hardhat Lanyard System is attached with Velcro strap loops and cinches around the fall-protection harness strap, ring or tri-bar. It is designed to stay close to the body to avoid discomfort and entanglement. The lanyard features an industrial-grade spectra/nylon line that extends up to 14 inches and a 2.5-ounce retraction force that mitigates slack. The product also allows a worker to drape his or her hardhat over a shoulder during breaks.
