The Blackhawk Personal Retention Lanyard Long is a mighty strong retention lanyard that is perfect for operators who must be lowered from helicopters or other dangerous heights onto ships or other surfaces. As you well know, this type of mission requires absolute faith in the equipment needed to get you down safely and without incident.
This personal retention lanyard will support you during your descent thanks to its tubular webbing, internal shock cord and five bar tacks on each end for securing the shock cord. You will stay securely in place during your descent. There are also attach-locking carabiners at each end as well. One side clips to your CQB belt or rappel harness while the other end attaches to anything solid for outstanding operability in the heat of the moment.
This retention lanyard has also been third-party tested for a tensile strength of more than 1,500 pounds so you know it can carry its weight and then some!
CAUTION: It is advisable to test, practice and be acutely aware of your capabilities prior to “real world” use. Each situation and weight load is different and requires operators to have proper planning and testing. For single person use only.
