Latchways has introduced the next-generation ManSafe Mini Self-Retracting Lifeline (SRL) to its portfolio. Smaller and lighter than its predecessor, the product features a patented, frictionless braking system and multiple spring radial energy-absorbing technology. Weighing a little more than 2 pounds when fitted with a double-locking snap hook, the mini is 6 feet in length. It can be used with a forged-steel snaphook, carabiner/hook and aluminum scaffolding hook. SRLs work in a similar manner to a seatbelt, permitting normal movement to facilitate work but in the event of a sudden fall, the mechanism locks, preventing any further movement. The SRL accommodates users from 132 to 309 pounds, including tools.
