Buckingham 6' Slide Buckle Pole Safety Strap 346099E
Positioning straps, commonly referred to as pole straps or safety straps, are one part of a work positioning system designed to provide the user the ability to work and have free use of both hands. The positioning strap is not intended to be used as a fall protection device unless the user secures their strap above a cross arm, lattice tower, etc. limiting the fall distance to less than two feet. There are three basic types of material used to manufacture a pole strap: 6-ply neoprene impregnated nylon, leather with a nylon center, and woven nylon.
This Buckingham 6ply neoprene impregnated nylon adjustable pole strap is the most widley used among utility line personnel. Excellent abrasion resistance, contrasting center color to alert user to replace the strap when worn. The stiff material is easy to position and slides easily on the pole. Quality design with slide buckle and locking snap hooks. Slide buckle is easy to adjust with one hand. No buckle pin to get in the hole. Unlimited adjustment positions. Buckle holds under tension. Releasing pressure allows the user to slide the buckle with one hand.
An easy-to-use snap hook designed to operate like a non-locker. The hinge point location makes the user operate the 99E locking snap hook as they did their non-locking snap hook. The lock mechanisms are internal therefore less likely to malfunction or be tampered with. This snap offers the widest opening to ease attachment and detachment with the gloved hand.
