    Frequently Asked Questions

    It is not generally recommended to connect snap-hooks and karabiners to each other. There is a significant risk of cross-gate loading or unintentional roll-out when hardware is connected together in this way, which may lead to disconnection or system failure. Where connection between a lanyard with a standard hook at the tail end and a scaffold hook is required, provided that the lanyard has a triple action karabiner at the tail end, it can be used to connect to the scaffold hook eye end in certain circumstances. The hook needs to align with the applied load (if connected to the eye of another hook, the hook / karabiner may not be able to move or rotate when a load is applied). Care should also be taken to ensure the length of the lanyard is not extended beyond 2.0m with the addition of the scaffold hook, such that the maximum free fall distance may be exceeded. The Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1891.4 does not refer to this type of connection, instead referring only to 'snap hook to snap hook' connections and the compatibility of this type of connection, which is specifically not recommended.​
    A harness should be worn over winter clothing where no allowance is made for the protrusion of the fall arrest rated attachment points. It is more visible for inspections and there is less chance for clothing to interfere with buckles and attachment fittings.​
    The lanyard has a 160kg capacity when used for a maximum allowable free fall up to 2 metres. It can also be used by someone as low as 50kg in weight, with no effect on its performance.​
    ​Yes, if the scaffold will support the potential loadings, and the scaffold manufacturer approves such use, you can attach your fall protection system. Make certain your connecting hardware incorporates hooks large enough to fully close and lock when attached to the scaffolding (for example, a Lanyard with a scaffold hook).​​ Also make sure the connecting hardware (snap hook) is allowed to be used in this orientation.​
